54mm wargaming.Lombard volunteers in the Italian wars of 1840's

two of these are bmc and one is hing fat, I started making these conversions of the volunteers who joined the flag of Charles Albert .Many werer students and very few were peasants who saw little reward in the war and guess what they were right, nothing much changed for them after the war.As the Who song says "New Boss same as the old boss" . A little reminder to never get mixed up in other people's wars especially when they call it a war of liberation.The wars in Italy against the Austrians were akin to the first civil war in American and its finale at Yorktown. Both were about getting the riches of the land from another. The ordinary people were secondary.
