	I converted a squad of mounted Boers, as well as a squad of
dismounted ones (including one trooper holding the horses of the
I used the 25mm Boer War figs from Ral Partha.	I added some bits to
one of them carry an MG42, another carries an IAVR, and a few have
night-vision goggles.  I also added some magazines and scopes to their
rifles to "tech" them up a bit.  I painted them if different schemes
have desert-pattern camo pants, etc.) to make them look like irregular
forces.  The only problem is that the RP Boers are a bit small,
around 22mm.  They look fine on their own, but next to the mounted
or Jaegers, they are a little small.  But still usable! :)

conversion (turn a few heads, add some bits, convert a SAW, etc.), they
will turn out *wonderful*.  Right now, there is only one mounted
but there are two mounted Jaegers.
