These guys were fun to make. Seven wooden and plastic beads, a piece of mini-dowel, and some acrylic dimensional paint. Adding the peaks to the front and back of the helmet really helps define the shape of it. I did not even need to paint any shadow.

They are part of my growing Seven Weeks' War armies using Neil Thomas' "Wargaming Nineteenth Century Europe 18151878" rules.

Dale, those are charming. Not sure that is a word wargamers like applied to their figures but that is the way I see them. I cant see myself doing that but it is more an issue of time and my painting ability than anything. Well done sir.

I made many of these while stuck in a hotel on a business trip with a hot glue gun and beads. You would be surprised at how little time they take and the cost is pennies per figure.

A lot of people call them charming, and I am okay with that. thumbs up

Might I suggest this article on Why Craft Your Own Miniatures on my blog: link
