Sho's 6mm sculpts

Excellent that you get the riding positions right in such a tiny scale. Some manufacturers in much bigger scales have riders plonked on horses with legs straight down as if they have lost their stirrups.
I don't think my eyes have it in them any more to tackle this scale but I still have some Heroics and Ros British Colonials I painted up a very long time ago. I did give it a try as it is a great scale for big armies and being a General rather than a sergeant appealed more to me.
Good luck they are very nice figures

By my concept I will sculpt all troops in 3 phases.
Phase 1. One main trooper in parade uniform (+ generals). For big battle wargamers (as I and David O'Brien are).
Phase 2. Command group and 1-3 additional troopers. For usual wargamers.
Phase 3. Troopers in campaign uniforms and diorama poses. For purists and demanding wargamers.

So at first only one pose to cover ALL revolutional and napoleonic powers and units. And preliminary command groups from second phase for some of them.
I want to cover 3 of my favorite battles at first: Borodino, Wagram and Waterloo.

If I have time left or have mood, I may be sculpt other gunpowder era units before napoleonic too.. and samurai of cource.

I don't have proper equiptment and tools for sculpting guns, but guns are things that "must be". So I scale down the photos from Zvezda 1:72 gun for proper proportions and use freehand sculpting.

Here are the middle of process. Doll for artillery and skirmish figures are visible.. and draft horse doll too.

Last items for Borodino Russian army..
I lost 2 moulds because the air bubbles and therefore I'm a whole week behind schedule, but small infantry mould is ready and if next two small moulds will be successfully maked, the whole bunch will be on sale in next week.
