At LEGO World I've met a really nice guy who had make a very interesting MOC. It's called Project Waterloo and you can read all about it his blog (only for the Dutchies). He was able to put injection needles inside the minifigs to make the working fountains. Also he did paint all the soldiers by hand.

Here's a picture I made at LEGO World last Sunday:

It was quite impressive to see in real live.  :pir-classic:
He painted those minifigs by hand and made those shakoos custom with epoxy.
Quite remarkable.

Interesting idea, and it actually works. Painting is very good.

It was very nice indeed, he had build a large case of minifigs, some of them were from the napoleontic time. He has made some hairpieces himself as well using rubber molds.
And I've seen some of Woody's custom hairpieces there, they do look quite good. I'm sure I need some in the future.

Finally I joined this forum to be able to react on this very old thread.
Thanks for the enthusiastic reactions on my creation!
About a year ago I incorporated this build into a larger layout. The pond has got green shores now:
