Speaking as a fully paid up member of The Victorian Military Society I think they're superb.  I love Her Majesty and I wish I'd thought of that nickname myself!

Jealous?  Me!

hey Michael,
your customs and PM knowledge looks like those of a PM customising veteren ;)

even your red turbans are not listed yet on playmodb..
were their turbans really red? (with stripes/bands of colours perhaps?)

and i am most happy to see your use of LEGO flags(i was a collector once)
and your use of those tripod legs

great customs and i like all yours above

Post by: henry_martini on January 18, 2007, 06:15:19 am
@panos: i hope we will see what you did with the turbans soon.

@cheng: the guides wore dress and turban in khaki. but for now i use only parts that are available from the ds (or at least affordable from other sources). the number of the red turban was from the invoice of an order in which i had just described it.

the white hats are supposed to be a playmobilish foreign service helmet/topee as long as there is no more convincing item for this purpose. they are camping hats or something like that from a set probably so very old that i am wondering if then existed part numbers at all. quite rare, but fortunately not impossible to find. putting one of them on the head of a redcoat was my first "customization".

i was amazed of your use of the lego flags on the back of one of your splendid samurai and how our own cultural environment and background brings us to see different things in the same object. these flags fit so perfect to pm poles that i consider them as genuine pm parts.

@jimbo: i am always happy when i see your avatar.

thank you all and greetings



@playmobil: if you read this: the next dinosaur with scientist set would be a great opportunity to provide us with a decent topee. don't miss it. and put a highlander with an india-style turban in this set too.

I like your Royal Loyal Light Infantry!!
every time i see something like this, i will want to make one for myself but i'm afraid i've run out of space .....and money  :D

hey..thanks for your explainatino about 'guides wore dress and turban in khaki.......but for now i use only parts that are available from the ds'

i know, i try so hard tp stick to PM parts only but we all know how frustrating it is to keep waiting and hoping kids and
PM will want those topees etc :-\

oh, i have one of those you called 'camping hats' they are like those US sailors hat with the brims folded down...maybe they are from some adventure sets or something

your first "customization"?! excellent already...you should have seen my first customization  :P

hey...exactly how i feel.....i see lego parts as genuine pm parts....(maybe bacause of their quality, finish and colours!)

looking forward to seeing more of your work  ;)

"The Princess Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen-Anspach’s Merthyr Tydvilshire Own Royal Loyal Light Infantry"

That's a seriously interesting name there!

I'll believe there's somewhere called "Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen-Anspach" but "Merthyr Tydvil" - never!
Title: Re: victoria's soldiers
Post by: henry_martini on January 23, 2007, 04:29:30 pm
@ dan: you are completely right. it is just a  'regiment saddled with a fantastic title on the territorial system, as, for instance, Mr. Kipling’s famous regiment, “The Princess Hohenzollern--Anspach’s Merthyr Tydvilshire Own Royal Loyal Light Infantry.”' (w. churchill, THE STORY OF THE MALAKAND FIELD FORCE, available from www.gutenberg.org). i don't know, in which of kipling's works they appear.  :)

@ GaiusIulius: of course they did not loose their colours in action. a part of my only union jack broke, when i tried to put it on a pole before taking the picture. the lad on the left in the second rank was supposed to hold it. but it is a good reason to customize a new one.  :D

WHOA!
hey Michael,
i gleaned through everyone of your pictures in this thread again...i feel like a beginner-customiser...wanting to ask you to slow down and explain one unit at a time  :P

i can visualise Rourke's Drift and zulus in the near horizon...your toppees look geobra-factory-finished...(maybe someday geobra doesnt have to commission their mould designer to make one...if youre willing to sell them your copy-right...for our sake!  :D )

i like 'two-toning' my klickies' hats...maybe its because i enjoy masking and spraying too...have you seen any real photos of toppees sporting a darker/lighter cloth band?
the complete helmet covers and the band of cloth could have been different materials...it would look even more stylish(i do compromise correctness with beauty, often) in 2-tone, if i'm allowed to add  ;D
Title: Re: victoria's soldiers
Post by: Leblanc d. II. on May 25, 2007, 08:22:48 am
perhaps you can customize an original french shako of the napoleonic time. The geobra ones have not the right size.

They are great - almost feel the sands of the desert.  I have always liked models of soldiers on camels and I have now GOT to make a camel corps figure!
Title: Re: victoria's soldiers
Post by: henry_martini on June 01, 2007, 01:52:00 pm
@leblanc: if it is not too urgent :D i will give a french shako a try but i have to look for a suitable existing plastic part as model first
 
@cheng: the cloth (pugaree) was stained in the sudan campaign with tea or tobacco juice, which clearly looks much better. i hope to find a way to cast it in different color. a spike and spectacles are also on my list... ;D     

@dan: i am really looking forward to your camel man

HM I am seriously starting to dislike you.

My one and only attempt at painting a "flat" was an officer of the 3rd Lt Dragoons of the 1st Sikh War and it was so awful it's still hidden in the back of a cupboard because (a) I can't bring myself to show it to anyone & (b) I can't bear to throw it away either.

Now you produce a first rate model klickie of the same figure!

I'm depressed and going to lie down.

'Nonsense, they couldn't hit an elephant at this distance'

Fortunately for Gough this was more true with regard to the sikhs than to the cs sharpshooters. ;D.   
I thought is was a nice gesture to his own troops anyway.

@leblancII: To make it more readable than I could write it down, I recommend http://www.britishbattles.com/first-sikh-war/ferozeshah.htm (http://www.britishbattles.com/first-sikh-war/ferozeshah.htm) from a www-site which has all battles of the first sikh war (and of course some others, too. :))  During this war there were apart from the military events on both sides hidden agendas and intrigues that you will like.

@all: thank you very much, more coming soon

I read the book a few years ago. I think it started my interest for British India.
I must have seen the film too but very long ago. So i am only now getting aware of the fact that a large part of it is more or less about the guides. Thank you for reminding me.  :)

And I must positively see the movie again.

IMO, Ben Cross, Omar Sharif and Amy Irving are great in the movie.

For anyone who enoys a really good parade, the wedding procession in the second half of Far Pavilions is wonderful.

I'm sure that there are many of us here that are very happy to see the return of Playmobil's German pickelhaube. As I'm sure you remember, the "spike" was detachable.

The old "Bobbie" helmet (from the Playpeople days of Playmobil in England) has been pretty good for the English colonial helmet, but I'd love to see Playmobil make a proper one. Or, a least bring back the English "Bobbie" helmet.

It is this rifle (http://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showpart.pl?partnum=30-05-2410) with the lever removed and this bayonett (http://www.playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showpart.pl?partnum=30%2006%200910).

The Devil's Own

88th Connaught Rangers. The pictures I saw were from the early 19th century but I guess they looked fairly the same until the time of the Crimea war.

new redcoats very nicely done Michael!
(have you tried putting the white sword belts from fat klikies over the cross belts? might sit better ;) )

btw, I really like the British marine(?) in white and blue! I bet you're making more of them too  ;)

A rare piece. The narrower belts fit quite well as long as they are kept in place by the arms.  :P

Same problem with the scarf and the wider sword belt, but after all we are collectors and do what we have to do.  ;D

Thank you all
