My 1st try to convert Hagen Miniatures Figures.
These are / were Napoleonic Indian Sepoys - with some Green Stuff made into US Infantry without shoes.
That´s my 1st try at converting lead figures. Let me know what you think and how to improve.

-> Besides, I hope you can see the pictures

Really inspirational stuff.

Personally I would have draped the flags a little so that they hung more realisticall6 but the overall impression is wonderful.

Best wishes,

Hello Chris,
thank you very much!
This time I jave tryed to improve the flags making. I have given them a sephia wash, and made the laces with golden thread. To drap? Linguee dosn't give me a good translation...I supouse that is to bend o twist as if it were a courtain; Of course! You are right, It,s very expanded, I can correct it just now...
Antonio.

Hi Lobo.

I use a paper glue, loop the flag around the pole and twist the flag into the desired shape whilst the glue is wet.

You can see what I mean on the Quatre Bras pictures.

Best wishes,

Chris

Just put matt varnish on the flags and you can shape them easily.

Thank you Chris; I usually do in that way, but this time I twisted them only a little; and yes, Yraveller, later I gave them a wash of a mix of matt varnish and sephia ink (because water affect the print paper..)
After seeing yor Civil War range...I thinking of including this period too...congratulations!
Antonio.

i think you are doing something wrong; You have created a "hotlink for forum"
Inside postimages, when you you want to share, you must choose "DIrect link for webs", and in the Full editor of this fórum,you have to selec this link an push ;" Img"
In the preview, you have to see the photo
That´s all...

Finally, some Hagen Miniatures Indian Sepoys I had no use for.
Therefore 1st try ever with Green stuff to create barefeet Americans. Comments for improvements more than welcome! - Now, since this photo hosting works, I´ll try better pictures next time :-)

Those Hessian Grenadiers really look like a force to be reckoned with Antonio. Very dynamic, exciting poses and terrific painting, they look great!
