My Oerberg Pioneer unit was hastily paint converted from ACW figures a few years ago in order to increase the number of infantry in the unit from 8 to 12 when using different rules.
Since the setting is now the early 20thC rather than the 1870s as originally planned, I decided that they could use a uniform touch up. I trimmed the trouser legs on the sappers into boots and painted all the leather dark brown instead of black.

That part was purely for the look but I also rebased them back onto their old washer-bases. Now that the armies and table are smaller than they were,
it is easy to manage stable individuals and the single figures makes it easier to take photos that give a feel for what's happening in pictures of a game.
Since most of the figures are still on temporary foamcore bases, I'll probably rebase more of them from time to time.
