Nonetheless we did get a few good'uns and here they are. The Revell Chasseurs were amongst the first I did other than Airfix. I particularly liked the officer - posed like the one in the famous Gericault painting. In front of him is a HAT Mameluke. I spent quite some time on him getting the look right - to see how far I could go with a 20mm plastic - and was pleased with the result.
Talking of conversions - one of the first and most extensive I attempted was remaking Revell's British Horse Artillery into a French one. The battery commander and bugler in the background are HAT/Airfix(?) conversions. Again - I couldn't get the limbers and caissons pictured properly and this was the only shot that turned out even half good - at this point I gave up my happy-snapping for the day!
Another Kennington figure I enjoyed collecting and painting were their French Dragoons.
