Actually they are all LEGO torsos so i don't really know...I am planning to use some decals soon though (for my English and Germans).
Thanks for the positive comments :pir-blush: .

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?
In my opinion, you should use sticker paper, as if you place it on correctly, you can avoid bumps that occur from glue.

Zorro, I'm happy to see you are working on soldiers from the Napoleonic Wars.  I'm expecting to eventually see them incorporated in some sort of diorama.  That's an order, Private!  :wink:

Yes I will do that, but first I need more men! But a diorama or battlefield certainly stands on my schedule.

Nice army, zorro. May i recomend adding a Napoleon.
Some say the vikings were tall, others say they were short. But they were in-between, They were armies of Ronny james Dios.

Hahaha, Freddie mercury was gay, though he didn't seem gay. how odd. I aint a homophobe

Thanks, I will add a Napoleon and possibly some officers too, I am on the lookout for an appropriate torso/decal for them.

I have big plans for my soldiers, but as you can read it is a WIP :pir-wink: .

I find that the new admiral torso works well as a english hussar

Hi Zorro... nice touch in your photo... a lazy fox that commands his troops...  :pir-laugh:
But I'm not the one with the historical knowledge… but which helmet of the old days must this represent ?
Thanks in advance for a reply.

Sorry Zorro but it does look rather.......odd perhaps :pir-sceptic:

I'v never known of a rat err......."sigfig" to look like that. That IMPRESSIVE army being commanded by a rat.

Don't feel bad Zorro but my friend uses a crocidle as a leader of his army :pir_wacko: :wacko:

Have you ever seen The Nutcracker on stage? It kind of reminds me of The Rat King.

Of course I don't, and it was just a joke  :pir_laugh2: , I really do not use my sigfig into my army.
Btw it's a Fabuland Fox head I put on a minifig (it fits, LEGO is compatible ay).

And to Woody, yes I know, I am watching your threads very closely, and it is only a matter of time untill I will place my order. Its just I have such a long buying list and the new Pirates sets didn't make it any shorter  :pir_laugh2: .
