Coming soon...

French dragoons, several variants. This is a snapshot of the latest state of the figures; 5 variants, some with the tricorne, some with the fatigue cap... And as they are dragoons, some are shown on foot.

Great!

And by 'copy & paste' one would transfer the fatigue cap on other 'bodies': very useful for (fictitious) 'light' and militia types!
The Dragoons 'bottines' also are of great potential (mis)use...

Thanks,
Jean-Louis

Hi Jean-Louis,

Thanks; glad you like their potential! :-)

I think the copy and paste might be complicated by the way the cap overlaps the figure's body - but if there is enough interest I could always include the cap as a separate item on the templates so it can easily be selected and used in a a graphics program.

All the best,

David.

I suspect that had you turned out these designs earlier those vile Stagonians might not have attacked Tippelbruder.

Then again, they are so vile that they might have done so anyway, just because it is MEAN.

David,
There is always the –old-fashioned but flexible- method inaugurated by
The «Bishop of Uber Gruntshuffen». He printed one (enlarged) template, hand-colored or painted it and had the image numerized back to post it on his blog.
So did more recently the ruler of (one of the) Freedonia(s).

Of course, before coloring it, you can modify the printed template to reflect exactly the cut of your imaginary uniform. In that case, ‘cut’ would be done with scissors and ‘paste’ with glue. Outdated but reliable!

Hi Jeff,

Well, doing all those French infantry uniforms didn't stop them, did it? So I don't suppose the cavalry would. Are you going soft on the Stagonians, suggesting that they might actually possibly slightly vaguely be reasonable? ;-)

Hi Jean-Louis,

I must say that it does seem a little curious to me using digital data in the ways you mention - but perhaps I'm just too "new-fashioned"... ;-)

All the best,

David.
