Hi cheng,

what a very beuatiful army. Please let us see more from then and also the confederates.  :D

I think it is a nice idea to paint the rifles, because that will give them more realism. The next step to make your troops more historical correct, is to change the insignia and shoulder straps. They ar always in the troops color.

That means:
infantry - light blue rank insignia
artillery - red rank insignia
cavalry - yellow rank insignia, so that you must not change.

I hope this Links will helb you!  :D

Can you explain us how do you design the black hat of the artillery officer?

Best regards
Bennain

Okay, here you will find some one: http://www.bigcountry.de/index.htm

This page is only in german, but I try to explain you the was!

At the bottom of the page you will find the word "Uniformen". This is the way to go! Then you see "Die Uniform (Hintergrundinformation)". Ther you can find some examples.

Title: ONE BIG LAST QUESTION?
Post by: cheng on December 09, 2005, 02:09:48 am
having checked those pictures i could find/understand from Bennain's links...

i couldnt confirm whether my union artillery caps(i couldnt find any) were correct.....in fact they look more like CS artillery caps!?!?

i am planning to pass these red/blue caps to my CS artillery men and maybe just make plain blue caps for these union artilllerymen with suspenders :)

HILFE! :D

I'm also interested in creating the ornaments for the kepis, but I've not enough talent for using graphic programms!  :D  If  you create theme as a graphicfile, please let us know and post it here!

I am not sure exactly what is a Kepi, but, if you post a foto of a real one, I may be able to make one for Playmobil using my Adobe graphics products... Let me know, and I will try to do it...

thanks very much Bennain,
i am quite certain after checking all these sites that i should pass my union artillerymen's caps to my rebels...

i will spray some CS infantry caps with lighter blue tops(this time using union caps since i need the dark blue band for the bottom half of the CS cap)

hope to see more of your work too! cheers!

Would something like this work? I just did a quick design, based off the 1861 model. Something like this could be copied and printed out on adhesive papers to make stickers to go on the Klickys' heads. Of course, colors and such can be changed around.

Wow, this look great.   (http://bilder11.parsimony.net/forum16749/humba.gif)

(It's something special by german soccer supportersand called "Humba". I think you will see it next year by the world Cup!)

Is it possible for you, that you can design us some decals for the Captains, Senior Officers and Generals?

Thanks
Bennain
