Hi everybody,

I have recently upgraded and extended my collection of Lego Napoleon's army. It's made strictly from original Lego (or Brickarms) pieces. I hope you'll enjoy it and maybe find some inspiration!

It must have cost a fortune getting all those bluecoats, flesh-colored body parts and accessoires! Well done!  :bonaparte:

That's a very decent army you have created, I like the bearskin hats a lot!
Your photo skills are admirable as well, great job!  :thumbup:

The only thing that I don't really like is the gold visors on the shako's, IMO the shako's are fine as they are.
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

That is a very nice army you've got there. You deserve it to be proud on such a collection! :thumbup:
Your cavalry looks splendid too, as do the other units. :pir-wub:

I have also moved this to the MOC-forum

Sail to My Brickshelf or to My MOCpages, or my Flickr Photostream!

Your Bluecoat army is truly a sight to behold!  :pir-classic:    I just have one question, how did you make those bearskin hats?  I've never seen those around before.

Hi, Captain Becker is right - it is the hat of the new royal guard (http://images4.wikia...oyalGuardHR.jpg). :bonaparte:

That's really a great non-decal-Army!!!!  Some lovely ideas you put in it. I guess some will be integrated in my army at a later stage(when it leaves his baracks... ahm boxes again). I really like the visors you used on the shakos, as well as the hands on the lances of the red lancers...
It's great to see that the bearskin heads of the CM5-Series do work with the older uniforms! Defenitly a nice thing instead of doubletires  :pir_laugh2:
It's also great that they are all flesh! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Amazing army! It has been a recent dream of mine to build an imperial army. Although, it will not pale in comparison to yours!
