Some Ideas

Making guns in the right way takes ages but on the Crescent figure below I gave the Converted cowboy piece a colt in metal. Now I'm going to try and reproduce this gun in miniature .Its a French hand gun and was big at Magenta and in the ACW
Heres the converted Crescent Cowboy with th new gun/pistol/Colt

This figure could be made much better bu slicing the legs in two and then slightly elongating them as the figure seems too squat but hey there were short blokes as well!!! See earlier posts and those of my other blogs for a close up of the colt.A work of Art.It will be available as a replacement hand in the future

This is a Marx figure I believe and I'd really like to get hold of this to convert it into a French Officer at Solferino.Its the perfect stance. I'm on a research bend at the moment about the wars of Italian liberation.See my other blog

This Britain's figure could easily be made into the Sardinian Guards in the Italian wars of the Risorgimento.
