The 1st battalion of the 1st regiment of the 1st division of Chasseurs Ardennais dugs in to receive yet another attack from the German Panzers and Mechanized infantry in the crucial Belgian Ardennes forest.
I used for these conversions the Airfix and Revell WW1 German Infantry, Esci Alpini and a few Revell WW1 French. A few more from different origins were used but more on that later. I chose these figures because their uniform cut is very close to the Belgian uniform as well as the black boots could be easily painted or desguised with paint on top of other different foot wear.
Bycicles came from the German Hat range. The helmet on every figure was carefully carved out and a bonnet made of two component paste was glued with super glue while the paste was drying. This allows you to model the bonnet to its shape and to achieve a good bonding.
