I'm pretty sure I've got a box of these RedBox guys somewhere waiting to be opened.

So - I think I'll paint them as my own local regiment from Leicestershire, the 17th Foot. :)

i have always been fascinated by this kind of a figure diorama/vignette; here are my contributions:

Image

Caesar Miniatures German troops on parade- i intend to cast some more and pain them accordingly- didn't include the figures in a marching stance..you can see a Preiser 1/72 German figure lying flat which i intend to mix with these Caesar miniature figures...

Image

Preiser 1/87 Bundeswehr Band figures and East German Honor Guard, modified accordingly...

I am a little curious, I do think it is fun to send figures to Jan, but what happen to them after FIGZ? Is there life after FIGZ?

Yes, of course! "Waterloo 2015" and the "Road to Arnhem 2016" are stored here in the basement. Waterloo was presented once more at the Euromodelexpo in Heiden. And I am thinking about another presentation at this years FIGZ if Remco agrees. The "Road to Arnhem" is stored in a special big box I have bought for it. And maybe I can bring it with me as well. So what do you think? I will not throw your work away.

Why only alpini? I want implementing the Italian presence. So why not even some bersaglieri?

I still choose to use the headgear, but I've already started working on figurines.

I'll contribute with Bersaglieri from the Italian War of Independence (the Waterloo 1815 set). It would be nice to see bersaglieri from two different period!

Hello Friends!

Today I would like to give you the bulletin for the Group Build 2017

Actual we are 17 Members working on the Great Parade:

Peter, Belgium
Gunnar, Sweden
Dirk, Germany
Michael, Netherlands
Santi, Spain
Sascha, Germany (he has already painted his first entry :occasion: :occasion: - so what next? ;-))
Paul, Great Britain
Dalibor, Croatia
Erik-Jan, Netherlands
Mai Strac, Italy
Mr. Andrea, Italy / Togo
Marvin Great Britain
PeachPiz, Philippines (furthermost Member working with us! :-D :yeah: :yeah: )
Dykio, Netherlands
Konrad, Germany
Michael Roberts (Visitor at the FIGZ 2016, who covered the greatest distance :-D :yeah: :yeah: )
and me, Germany as well.

So for the beginning of February this is a long list of participants. But not long enough I think. :mrgreen:

Where are the guys from USA, Kurt or Rich, who made great entries for the last GBs. And I am also waiting for somebody from Russia. Eugenij has some figures that could fit to this GB as well. Arek from Poland: You created the great hunting scene last year. Also Greece is not yet in the column. Come on guys! And where is Southamerica? We have also members from that part of the world.

When building the Waterloo GB we have been 24 persons. This year I would like to have 25!! :mrgreen:
I keep you updated and when everybody has made a decision about his theme, I will post another list.
