Built on Duplo, including some 1x2 plates I made by cutting larger plates down. For photos you only need three good sides!

My kids are super rough with Duplo and break a bunch, so I decided to salvage some broken plates and make a new 1x2 plate size.

I mean, you SAY it's a company, but it's like six dudes :pir-devil:

I kid, I kid.  This is a very nice vignette... or vinaigrette... or whatever the technical term is.  I would imagine using Duplo cut down a ton on the number of pieces used for the whole set, while really not subtracting anything that would be present with a standard Lego build.  The soldiers each seem to be having very unique experiences during this march, ranging from enjoying the scenery to not particularly wanting to be there.  Looking forward to more of these in the future.

The cuff at the sleeve ends looks good. Their uniforms are becoming more and more realistic. I also like the landscape with Duplo and the hare.

Thanks! Yeah it takes about 10 minutes to build a Duplo base, which is way quicker than similar LEGO methods

Not everyone is a happy camper!

Thanks @NOD! These torsos are decorated with stickers from @Saber Scorpion

I mean... obviously New Jersey would be built out of Duplo!
