WAS in Italy (8): General Cinzano organizes his troops
I've painted up some Piedmontese light guns and a mounted General. The artillery crews are Prussians from Crusader with pompoms removed, cockades added and cuffs enlarged with green-stuff. The guns are Perrys AWI Hessian guns. I was not sure what colour to paint the Piedmontese artillery but a couple of sources suggested a shade of green so I've gone for a dark green.
The General is a magnificent one-piece-casting from the Perry's AWI French range - French colonels. They are lovely figures and very expressive I think. The epaulettes were removed, cuffs thickened, a cockade added as well as a sash. Cinzano (was that Bianco or Rosso, I wonder) was a Piedmontese major-general (and colonel of the recently painted Fuiliers regiment) so he is wearing his regimentals as he orders his troops forward at Campo Santo.
