I've received the third set of WWII french foreign legion today and I'm really happy with them :notworthy: :wave: , this is THE figures I expected for so many years :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: , my napoleonic project is really time consuming but if I can manage a little break to paint them soon I will do it, they don't require a lot of work, although they will be part of another big project.
Once more many thanks for these 3 beautiful set ! :-D I really don't understand why big manufacturers failed to cover such a popular subject, but it's right that there's no big french figure manufacturer, Heller is selling airfix product when it come to 1/72 figures.

They look great guilham! Did you paint the examples we are seeing? Love the bases, too. Fine depiction of the brave men who gave Rommel fits at the Battle of Gazala.

Hi,

I'm fan about the dragons portés.

If you remove the heads and put an Adrian Helmet you can even get some Corps Francs.

Can't wait to watch the following.

I like the way you put your idea with differnt part of figures together. Make your own clothes with green stuff.
These are well done. :thumbup:

If I remember correct in the beginning of this post you want some opinion, options to your work.
What about a fallen or wounded small set? One good man left one good men right and in between the woundet who sit on a pice of wood who is carried by the both good ones? These could be three or four pices finally.
I aske this because shooting soldiers we get a lot from Airfix, Esci, Cäsar and so on.
You build some new, unavailable and livelike poses that is true.
A well done set of woundet or for example as described above do not exists.
If you do your work for wargamers so I see no option to see a set like that.
Then I understand that.
Pleas do not understand this as a negative critics.

Thank you for you message Wiking.
I have produce 3 german dead (very beautifull I think), 2 british or canadian dead , 2 russian, and one french walking wounded.

I think that my friend retrokit france will produce this soldier in resin (like a big part of my soldiers).
If you want a big set of dead and wounded soldiers. I am ok.
But how many ? Help me to know how produce them.
In each spin I can produce 27 soldiers so:
6 germans, 5 british, 5 russian, 5 french, 5 US (if you prefer one nationality).
Do you think all this soldiers will be buy or do you think I must produce only : german, US, russian?
In my opinion , it can be a good idea to produce this wounded and dead soldiers for the players.
