My new napoleonic soldiers
« on: January 27, 2006, 11:19:26 am »
I like soldiers, but the napoleonic are my favourites.
We must use our imagination to create them and here is my contribution  :)

Sorry, but I don't know the traslation of some military names like 'coraceros', I somebody know...

This is a charge of coraceros. The infantry try to stop them.

Hello, Yoyei ...

What a wonderful surprise, my friend! ... ... ...



Your Napoleonic soldiers are beautiful!

I especially like the special touches, like the Grenadier with the ramrod!

And, your clever use of playmobil parts to make your dragoon helmet and your backpack.

BTW a "coracero" is a "cuirassier"! Yes, we use the French word in English ... ;)

Thanks for posting, Yoyei ... And, I know that everyone hopes that this is only the beginning, and that we will see a lot more of your Playmobil toy soldiers.

All the best,
Richard

Yoyei,

These are magnificent!

My favorite is the Duke of Wellington, who I will soon copy and turn into a naval officer! ;)

I left my love a letter in the hollar of a tree.
I told her she would find me in the U.S. Cavalry.

Thanks  :wink:

The backpack is based on ref 3842, the mountaineer
These helmets are a mixture of the one used by workers in ref 3833 and the roman helmet

i always say,
the hats/ helmets
is most essential to customising soldiers...

yoyei...thats another fine custom of helmets by you!

(my avatar would be more convincing if i could make him the correct flat-topped hat)

what glue do you prefer to work with?...in this case, to hold the blanket roll and the comb(on the helmet...i assume you drilled and saw it to insert and used glue to secure it)
