Very nice - that hair will be extremely useful for such customs.

(I always struggle to find them hats...)

Ralf,
When I was kid all my hand painted metal toy soldiers looked exactly alike.
I always wished that the painters would have "individualized" them a bit.
Of course, as I got older, I remedied the problem with my own paint brush.
At first glance, your wonderful toy soldiers appeared to all look alike.
However, a second look quickly reveals the time and the care that you took to make them look like individuals.
Thank you once again for sharing your magic with all of us!
All the best my friend and stay safe,
Richard

Richard, uniformity vs. individuality is of course a point when looking at our little friends. But in the end toy soldiers in uniform look only good in groups!
At the moment I work through my whole collection. I try to concentrate on some key topics (Napoleon in Egypt, 18th century, Middle Ages, Victorian Era) where I am working "en masse". All the other boxes (ancient times, ACW. ECW) ar turned over and I only keep the individual figures which stand the test of time. Some look fine "forever", some just worked out at the time I put them together.

Today it's time for more civilians!

If my memory serves me right, figures in #41 are an almost exact reproduction of a Savoyard uniform!  :clap:
