Thanks for the tutorial link Ducadi. It's crazy to think off all the work you have been putting in for each piece you make.

look at "THIS" in the picture 4, the brass parts are sewing needles, machined with a lathe (man is 5.4 cm).
This is my insanity :pir-sweet:

New decals.

You're the man when it come to making model soldiers I see, fantastic work!  :thumbup:

I'm curious to ask what has drawn you to Lego, rather then using other materials to make realistic models?
Do yo plan to make a battlefield diorama with the Lego models when they are finished?
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

Back from a trip to germany (Legoland), I went to look around on the forums, and saw the wonders of Michaelozzie, and..............

For now I limit myself to a military parade, if I make it.

Another beautiful print.  :pir-wub: Though I do have to say, I don't quite like the leopard (?) print, it looks a bit too detailed for LEGO. When will we see a completed soldier? I'm impatient to see the results.

Good criticism, I have to paint the leopard skin on the piece (too complicated a decal)I put in the picture as the background of the saddle, the first thing that I found on internet (it is also bad as skin, but I have not found anything else)

That's just crazy!  :pir_wacko: So much detail.

With my current WIP I've had to stop many times and ask myself, "Is this too much detail?" I think with you the question never stops presenting itself. :laugh:

This is actually quite impressive and you clearly spent a lot of time on it.
They might indeed be too detailed for LEGO but you sure did a great job here.
Go to Classic-Pirates.com

I do switch the title from armèe to armée for the frontpage though :pir-classic:

Go to Classic-Pirates.com

it is not easy to reduce the details of the hussars Napoleonic,were the maximum of the elegance of the time, before going forward with the army I want to finish this, just to see the final result and criticism.
I listen to the criticism, if you notice i often change the decals.

I started experiments,the work becomes too long and laborious, too many masks to do. I assembled all the evidence, This is an idea of what was to be.
For now abdicated, I enjoyed very much the realization,but for now I'll stop here.

First big mistake.
In this photograph, we see that the color gold is damped by decal. The solution is to apply one coat of clear gloss over the gold, before applying the decal.
In this way, the gold remains alive and shining. Already experienced, but I have no picture.

Ive been waiting to see how this turned out and its very impressive. Your custom pelisse looks great! Dont get discouraged though on the colouring, its all about trial and error till you get it looking right. I know I went through 10 decal designs till it looked the right way. It is very time consuming though making a custom army :pir_bawling:
