I did a 2nd trial to adapt the painting of A.Adam "Austrians Thermopyles".

I'm struggling to tell the French from the Austrians... can you give us a summation on the original painting? The exact battle, historican context etc.

Looks almost exactly like the painting *y*

Love the custom torso's, wich nation are they?

Hauptmann Hensel: Geniecorps (Pioneers and Sappeurs), commander of the defenders

Artillery Supply Staff: Brown/Blue

Artillery: Brown/White

Infantry: White

French Infantry ?

The exact battle, historican context etc.

It happend during the french offensive 1809 through the Kanaltal. The Austrian forces were ordered back and the defenders got the task to hinder the french corps as long as possible.

They did it for some days with a corps of less then 300 soldiers. After all the french stormed the fort with the help of one troop searching their way trough the mountains in the back of the defenders.

That's why it's called the Austrian Thermopyles, since the end of the story reminds to the greek story.

The 300 soldiers had a loss of 80 dead and further 80 wounded whereas the 17th may was reported with 1300 dead and wounded by the french.

I found a very good sumary but unfortunately only in german:

1809

The torso of that soldier leaning forward is what I'd imagine for the torso of solider in a French sub-theme. Distinctly different from the blue coat Imperial Guards.

And here are the decals for the torsos:

Hensel (I have to admit already in the new design according to Mosana's howto)

But here are Mosana's decals, which I prefer over my old ones:

A very nice MOC. Add a few more barrels, and dropped rifles, and it'll be perfect *sweet* I especially love your decals, and I like how that last one goes down the legs *wub*

Your French torso is everything I imagined *y* and everything I wish The LEGO Company would actually produce.

Don't you think that's the better one ...

Hmmmmm... It does look more refined... But the only way to tell is to print them out and stick them on a torso so get to it X-D

That soldier walking through the door way looks like a French ImperialScouts. X-D

In the overhead shot if it weren't for the legs I couldn't tell that was his back.

For this scene I made special decals nearly for all of the figures.

The french one got also decals for the back as also visible in the original painting.

The french officers got also different fronts as in the picture.

Did you design the torsos in Illustrator?

No, although I'm a linux guy I used the good old mspaint as shown in mosana's tutorial - shame on me .

But at the end it is easy to use with the needed functionality and the tutorial gives some usefull tipps how to achieve the necessary results.

And also inefficient and cumbersome when you want to make changes X-D

That's true, but for the decals I can make also different changes fast ...
