Here is a conversion I have just done. It’s Sterling Price Confederate General and commander of the Missouri State Guard in 1861. I have depicted 'Pap' Price, as he was known, in civilian clothes as he appeared at the battle of Wilson's Creek 10 August 1861. I intend to paint up a couple of brigades of Missouri State Guards who like their commander did not generally wear military uniform in the early stages of the war. The first photo below is of the original Front Rank mini of the mounted Napoleonic Gentleman from which the 'Pap' Price was made. I used Milliput to make the hat and extend the coat.

Here are photos of my homecast 35mm C18th army as it currently stands. All the the figures are 35mm from toe to top of head. I have just finished making masters for artillery gunners, a Grenadier (Austrian style) and begun work on a Cavalry Trooper. I need to make a General or two as well. The figures on the left of the line are the extra stands that resulted from me reducing the numbers of figures in a Regiment from 32 to 24. I will touch up the figures with a dab of paint here and there, add some standards and there will be another three regiments fit for service. I am looking forward to using these with the Honours of War rules.
This is the 'Daniels' Regiment painted to the colors given to me by a wargames buddy whose names just happens to be Daniels. The regiment has its priest with it as they are a sanctimonious lot. The Priest is a Redoubt figure from their Three Musketeer line. It just happened to be the right scale for my minis.
