Ive now added the plumes to all the shakos of my infantry. Ive also completed the first of my Red Lancers. The main troop types are shown here like Grenadiers of the Guard, Line Grenadiers, Voltiguers and Chasseurs(light infantry). Tell us what you think.

Amazing (I realy seldom use that).

But I have a first comment. Maybe you should use a original Lego flag for the Lancers flag (and paint it). I think that would look more realistic ....

Can we also expect Dragoons and Cuirassiers?

I'm astonished by seeing those creations! Your work on the shako's is amazing! :thumbup:
I love the plumes and the tiny ropes on it, the decals on the torso's and cuffs are also amazing. I also like the stiched cloth on some trousers, great detail.
Your horse regiments look brilliant, their hats are really nice.

Keep them coming! :pir-wub:

How did you connect the snaredrum to the minifig? Or is it a secret. I really want to make some drummers for my army.
The sticks, is that a common pole (lightsaber) cut in half?
Already thanks! :pir-sweet:

Yeah i used a brown pole(lightsaber and cut it in half). To attach the drum i made a strap which was attached under the sticker decal on ths drum. I also used sticker paper for the strap so it held it in place better on the torso. It was cut long enough to wrap over the shoulder and down the back again. And the ends are inserted between the torso and legs. If you would like some pics let me know and i will post them. :pir-blush:

I shall take that challenge!  :pir-laugh: In a few weeks I'll post it.

Outstanding work on these minifigs! The cords must take a lot of work.

One question, have you painted the canon? (I suppose you did, but the colour resembles pearl gold perfectly)

This is GREAT - I instantly fell in love with your great army. Absolutely astonishing... and full of detaisl (e.g. the patch on one of the soldiers trousers....). Can't wait to see more or see them into action on a vignette!

I am astonished by your custom czapka/rogatywkas on the red lancers. Does anyone know a technique of making a czapka with cheaper tools than with ABS plastic molding machines?

There's the CMF Graduate hat. With some paint and a little bit of modding it could look good, I think.
