Well these are not very red yet, but I did want to show work in progress. The Duty Squadron for Waterloo Remodelled needs 100 of the Red Lancers, at rest not charging around. Hard to find but I relied on Art Miniaturen's 3rd Silesian Landwehr. They have the czapka, but the full dress ones have very Prussian cap lines (hence the rolled cloaks on some as a camouflage, where they cross the body). Greenstuff created a fringed epaulette, some over large aiguillettes, plumes, sheepskin saddles and pointed tips to shabraques.
Thanks must go to Thomas Mischak, not just for the two standing Prussian officer figures (Hagen Miniaturen) but for pointing me to a superb 3D printed range (Kane Taylor). They are Duchy of Warsaw and very much in action, but their heads were just what I needed for the Franznap cloaked figures (Franznap heads are far too small for these, I think). I did use their trumpeter for a trumpet major in a colpack (totally anachronistic for 1815, but what a uniform!)
Only 28, but I wanted to see if it could be done. The 3D printed cloaked lancers have a cap cover and could be a real bonus to getting to 100 without breaking the bank;

Impressive levels of dedication and workmanship! Does Kane Taylor have a website?

Indeed, most impressive! Well done!

Many thanks.

I don't think he has a website. I found him through eBay or rather thanks to Thomas Mishack pointing me that way and sending me a few samples.

The last link carries his contact details. They really are very sharply "cast" figures. I got a couple of DB Carabiniers too and they are superb

Brilliant work, Liam, the project is very much the richer for your contributions. Can't wait to see the painted results!

They actually look much better now undercoated in black!

Fabulous work!

Red Lancers are probably my favorite Napoleonic unit, so Im excited to see them painted up!

great work – inspiring

Many thanks. They look very different now (and far better), but still a week's work to do.

The cloaked figures from Franznap are a great help in speeding things up, even with full dress Czapkas from Kane Taylor's 3D printing. Only once I started painting the heads and the conversion of a DoW trumpeter to an anachronistic trumpet major did I realise just how sharp is the detailing. A limited range so far, but I do hope he prospers.

Thats an impressive project! A fine combination of metal, print and greenstuff!

DH, so impressed!

(your comments over on the WW2 board caused me to come searching here – and very happy I did – wonderful work!!!)

Cheers all. I am a late convert, but like Paul on the Road to Damascus, my views on 3D printing are transformed. I expected layers of stripes, like a cliff edge that was once the seabed.

"Only" the horses to do now and starting them in 10 minutes time.
