If you are going to comment on other people's grammar, you need to get it right yourself.

"thougt" should be thought, "I looks" should be I look.  :pir_laugh2:  :pir-grin:

Thanks for the comments, Captain Zuloo, and now I am going to stop posting stuff like the sentence above, joking/playing around is good, but not during an entire thread. :pir-wink:

PICTURE 2: Landwehr (voluntary semi-civilian units, often commanded by local authorities or noblemen).

Nice landwehr creation ...

I will react with my Austrian/Prussian contigent:

By the way, maybe someone (Napoleon) has also a tip for some resin based spray or gloss for building a clean surface for molded parts.

Very good, onfortunatly I'm not using decals...I want to be able to use my men later (in my sets)too.

Do you have a link to your thread(s)? I presume you have one...

Which furface and molded parts are you referring to? do you mean standard Lego surfaces in general?

Thanks ! as you can see by my reply on one of your threads I knew you had them (and shako molds), but I didn't know you had multiple (hat/helmet molds)...they all look so great BTW.
And so do the decals :thumbup:

Nice army you have their, i've been working on making more Landwehr for my Prussian army as well as calvary and cannons.  But i'll be saving until the new pirates come out so I can get atleast 50+ impulse sets.

I added my first British Units !

I am also building other British Units:
- A Line Infantry Regiment (standard, looks a lot like the Coldstream Guards/standard Imperial Guards, but they have a musket instead of the rifle the Coldstreams have....)
- Naval unit
- Artillery unit (small, lacking men to build entire battery yet)
- More Staff/officers + train (cooks, docs,....)


More pics will follow soon!

Thanks for the comment, now to answer your question:

I am the reincarnation of Napoleon Bonaparte. He came to me in a vision to tell me that. He commanded me to build him a new army with Lego minifigs. At one good day, he will make them alive with the Voodoo Magic he learned during his Egyptian Campaign...

OR: I might have drunk too much that day, that would be the other possibility.

PS: look above for the newest pics!

Sorry for double posting, but I have an update: the French Line Infantry (see first post above for pics).

I build this unit today because I just received an eBay order I made: 15 mixed imperial soldiers/guards!

I use human fertilizer, it's free and it works the best. You really should try it! The fresher it is the better it works :pir-classic: .

I am first going to make an army worth the name "army", then I am going to start building some battlescene MOCs and probably some ships and forts.
I currently also have: 1 BSB+1incomplete one , 2SES, 2 Imperial flagships + 1 bluecoat flagship and 1 Caribean Clipper. Also a trading post and the bluecoats fortress, as well as almost all the smaller sets.

So I have some building parts...
Now I am slowing down a bit on buying till next month (actually till next paycheck :pir_laugh2: ), I don't even dare to calculate how much I spend on sites as Bricklink, eBay, Kapaza in just one months time :pir-cry_sad:

I am relating to the German Duchy of Brunswick, a nation that changed sides/ownership more then once during the Napoleonic wars. Before 1815 it carried different names according to who owned it: Brunswick-L√ľneburg, part of Westphalia, Hannover,...read its history at wikipedia :pir_laugh2:

The building you are referring to most probably belongs to the legacy of Charles II, duke of Brunswick, the former ruler that had to flee it's homeland. He left his entire (enormous) fortune to the city of Geneva, and consructed or funded many buildings during his life there (incl. the Grand Opera of Geneva)I think the monument on your picture was constructed by/for him too.

ok... I asked it because I know one of the last of this "Brunswick family" ^^ who now is not rich because that his ancestor left his fortune to the city, he lives near Marseille, I was with him in a medieval sword fighting association ( don't know how to call it in English )

Cool, he should still have his title, and independant dukes can beknight people, so maybe you should ask him: then next time we have to say: Sir Guss, knight of the Brunswick Order. Does that sound nice or not?  :pir-classic:

Holland? No way, too small, too Orange and too....cheesy.... :pir-grin:  first we must get back Bonapartes throne of France, ally with the German states, invade Spain and then great-britain!

Very nice army so far! I like your cavalry and landwehr the most of it. Although you should expand your artillery a little :pir-blush:
May I ask you for a tip? I see you have very nice torso's for your minifigs. I've been designing already a few torso's but do you print them on sticker paper or do you glue them onto your minifigs?

Anyway, keep up the good work :thumbup:
