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!

thank you for the idea, stéphane. due to your hint i  "customized" a western rifle. the result is quite similar and fits also with the bayonet.

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
