I thinked to give a chance for 10mm (1:150) and prepared two dolls. After slowly advancing with this project I plan to produce at least one set someday and then watch, what happen.

At first I make dolls for all figures in set and this process I will cover here. What Unit it will be, we can decide later, when all dolls are ready.

you must at least make two complete armies – to get a chance that people would buy the miniatures.

Sho Boki10 Sep 2018 10:04 a.m. PST

In 8mm yes, but in 10mm it is the same as in 15mm, there already are armies from other producers.

Sho Boki28 Sep 2018 4:50 a.m. PST

Big horses from 8mm are useful as small horses in 10mm.

Sho Boki06 Oct 2018 10:04 a.m. PST

Legs moved closer to centre of weight.

Yes, please. 1809 would be nice.

Do the bayonets have to be as prominent?

Yes, it must be as prominent.
But may be closer to barrel line.
This doll is mother for all other dolls, so there will be lot of modifications before I start to sculpt master figures.

Supreme Littleness Designs11 Oct 2018 7:31 a.m. PST

As you say there are other producers and, to fit in, nearer the barrel would match all but one sculptor. Similar to your excellent 1:100 scale would be perfect. Small horses is also an excellent idea. May I suggest Insurrection cavalry.

Sho Boki13 Oct 2018 1:06 p.m. PST

The bayonet is now better?
old – left, new – right.

Right now I don't think about cavalry much.
These 6mm, 8mm and 10mm are my hobby or side projects, at least until they stay poorly castable. I try to get well casted infantry unit first.

Supreme Littleness Designs14 Oct 2018 4:56 a.m. PST

Far superior!

Sho Boki23 Oct 2018 7:02 a.m. PST

Officer doll..

Supreme Littleness Designs23 Oct 2018 4:25 p.m. PST

Very nice to see the officer marching with his men instead of standing or being out of step.

Doll with French musket and doll for Flagbearer or pike/pontoon carried Officer or NCO.

I would shorten the lapels on the 10 mm a bit – to achieve a higher taille.

Sho Boki13 Nov 2018 4:47 a.m. PST

Like this?

von Winterfeldt13 Nov 2018 6:20 a.m. PST

either my eyes are betraying me, but you also made the lapels narrower? Very nice eagle on the shako

Sho Boki13 Nov 2018 6:46 a.m. PST

I moved lapels more to centre and add belly. Otherwise it was too flat.
Also new eagle, to improve the side view of shako.
Now I think, what to do with trousers.

von Winterfeldt13 Nov 2018 9:31 a.m. PST

long trousers please

Sho Boki14 Nov 2018 5:34 a.m. PST

Voila,

Excellent Sho – look like good 18mm sculpts! Incredible that they are 10mm.

Sho Boki24 Dec 2018 9:25 a.m. PST

In metal..

Very nice final product. Can they be bought? I couldn't find them in your shop.

Sho Boki24 Dec 2018 10:45 p.m. PST

They are far away from being released. This is only testcasting, to inform me, are they profitable to produce, because my pricing policy bases on weight of figures (postage terms). Thanks to this my earlier 6mm figures haved too expencive prices, compare to other producers.

But now I may happily say, that in 10mm I may offer not expencive but average price, comparable with all other producers I checked. This trooper will be probably cost only 0.20 EUR max. But I prepare all other needed figures too and then will decide.

So there is hope, which is good to know. Let me know if it is possible to influence your decision!

Excellent! With 2-3 additional pose variations, even better.

Sho Boki26 Dec 2018 11:34 p.m. PST

No-no, no pose variations!
All must march with same step, right leg forward. All, including officers, musicians, flagbearers and NCO. Uniformity is better here than diversity.

Tested and proved. My 8mm figs looks great on closeup photos with pose variations, but on table they don't. They looks more walking free than marching.

Lets party with Cossacks Supporting Member of TMP27 Dec 2018 5:07 a.m. PST

Ok. No pose variations!

So ready for production soon (I hope)?

Sho Boki27 Dec 2018 5:50 a.m. PST

Well. Quality is OK. Weight is OK. Castability is OK.
Now I try to create full production mould for these troopers only. Because command figures (markers) need full mould for themselves anyway, I suspect.

Look forward to your report on the results Sho.

Juhan Voolaid02 Jan 2019 3:29 a.m. PST

Damn, nice work!

received a sample miniature, very nicely cast, crisp details
