My Grande Armèe

82 posts in this topic

I write as little as possible, not to say stupid things in English, knowing just a few words.

The double translation might help me, judge for yourself

Many pieces are made by me, I build miniature models, tanks, figures

Impressive :D I really liked the Cavalry man's Helmet, shame lego haven't done anything like that yet, and the swords look pretty cool, much better than the ordinary Lego swords.

That looks really interesting.

Do you have any further photos of the end results. A complete Minifig using your custom parts.

As I have seen you first build the master part and then you mold it.

What material did you use?

I used plastic for the Masters and two-component resin (Prochima) for replicas.

the mass of pieces increases

Thanks for the tutorial link. I was going to ask if you had the time to make one.

I am curious though. The video is just the casting part, how do you make the prototypes/originals (not sure the correct term) to use in the mold. They look so good.

Can't await to see some completely finished figures.

How many pieces can be made with a mold before it's unusable?

Thanks. Ive been a bit quiet on the lego scene for a little while.I have been reworking my army to 2 line, 1 light regiments and the foot chasseurs of the imperial guard. Ive also been experimenting with some fun fur for bearskins for my guard infantry. Hopefully will be posting some pics soon.

They looks great.

Btw, what size do I have to print the torsos? Can someone tell me the cm/mm figures? Thanks.
