It's been a long learning process..........however I'm pleased to say that Chris has now finished the sculpting of the French infantry - and they have been tweaked a bit to make them fit in even better with the older figures.
He has also taken the opportunity to add two new figures - a standard bearer:
And also an NCO without turnbacks (so the chap with a sword I discussed in the last post is an officer).
In addition to the tricorns there will be a grenadier head
And a bonnet de police (not quite finished)
The 3D printing is now all sorted, below is a casting of the French infantryman with turnbacks advancing (right), shown alongside an advancing Austrian (er left), as you can see they are a pretty good match. (Since this version the facial features exaggerated a little, and the tricorn enlarged, see image).
I should get a set of test moulds shortly - AND THEN THE CAVALRY!
