They all look good!  ;)

I haven´t checked what you post on KW lately. Are you doing mostly customs without prints these days (purist style, or close) or do you still do (a lot of) other figures?

Personally, I find it twofold with what Playmobil brings out these days. On one hand they come up with all kinds of new hats & accessories & vest-colours & etc. which is great, but on the other hand sometimes the printing is overdone (and not always removable, like when several prints overlap one another and you don´t want to erase them all) and also the newest "Southern-Europe" skincolour - which is very close to the "Asian" skincolour but just a bit darker - makes it more difficult to find the right arms & legs in the right colour. The newest skin-colour also complicates buying figure-parts without seeing them in reality, pictures must be of very good quality to still see the difference with the "Asian" skin-colour.

@Hadoque: my purist approach is right now limited to "Anno 1732" and part of my "Middle Ages" collection (and a few single figures). "Culloden","Napoleon in Egypt","Charles the Bold" and some smaller projects are more "realistic". And there is a topic "Anno 17.." on the way.

Love your soldiers, they aresimiliar to what I am trying to create in Playmobil for the Armies of Marholt (the role playing world I have been building for quite some time).   However, after seeing yours, I may elect a more minimalist look.  Right now, I am using the various printed torsos from the Pirate theme. 

I have seven sets of white shorts with white stockings, but see that you have dozens.  I have tried to find more on Ebay, but have had no luck.  May I ask, how you came by so many sets and can you help me acquire some?

Thank you for sharing and the new idea on how to build my armies.

@rexalan: the soldier with the white trousers was availabe via the German DS but sadly it was not included in my last order. Is it really discontinued? I sometimes try again a few months later and suprisingly it is available then but there will come the day when the won't sell it anymore....or it is included in another set.


Today some civilians!
