I Kaktus.... I love your work.... thank you it is a pleasure to see your soldiers.
2 little mistake (error):
_ solfig is over, I dont know how to change the tittle of my post. my name is lesarméesoubliées (forgoten army).
_you use the 75mm boxe for the 25mm gun. the good box is the box that you put with the hotchkiss (picture of left).
Havec you paint all your soldiers (where is the grenade riffle)

Very good painted figures.
Nice to see the ACE gun build.
The different head gear and his color is also a nice touch.
An well modeled figures too. With a few well made unique pose.
:yeah:

Thank you guilhem for your fast informative response.
As I already write a few pose ( in particular three) that are:
A: unique
B: livelike
C: well done
As shown on kaktus pics.

All the other standing and kneeling, prone firing etc. pose (very well made by you ) I get far more as needed of it from Airfix, Esci, Cäsar, ... .
And on top three up to five times of this poses are in each box.
And if I need it ,it is easy to convert by swap heads.

I know that this is not what you want to read and a bit unfair due to your nice conversions or modeling of figure you have done. :yeah:

But please be so kind and see my point of few. For me it is totally useless to buy a set of 18 or 25 figure only for a single one.

If you want only some single soldiers , it can be possible.
Please tell me witch soldiers you want, but the price will be a little more expensive.
when you take the complete set the price is about 1,2 euro. If you take single soldiers
it will be about 1,5 euro each soldier

Wonderful done. I presume it was a lot of work. And finally you achieved it that also the french arrived to fight in North-Africa.
