Seriously, it is. That hat design and head combination works really well.

I finally got around to building myself one of these. They were lots of fun to pose and stuff. Again, great job!

*update*

Ok, I found a design for the French-style shakos. I used it to make this Prussian line infantryman (late Napoleonic Wars):

Image

the black piece is the longcoat wich was rolled up and hung over the chest.

Image

Image

Image

Image

(shako is better in person than in pics)

reference of course:

reference 1

reference 2

Comments and other things are welcome!!!

P.S. the "tail" has a function: it holds the rubber band :wink:

edit: some new pics:

well, they aren't supposed to work with other minifigs as these replace them for more accurate versions.

These are awesome.

I love the headgear you've come up with. The use of various minifig hair pieces is amazing.

Plus of course the leg design=genius! I prefer the official minifig legs for the most part, but this is a fantastic way to make figs that are taller or shorter than the average, so thanks for the idea! I've actually come up with some rather unusual leg designs off of it (spider-ish legs, snake tail, tentacles). It's an awesome technique! :D
...and that's how Equestria was made!

Thank you very much :D

Go ahead and post these designs as I'd like to see them too :wink:
It's really interesting what you can do with hair if you turn it around...

And before anyone else uses it:
If you use the Hermione hair backwards (putting some 1*1 plates under it), you have the bearskin hat of Grenadiers. (I'll post a pic, but I need a black piece for it though...)

These guys look great.

I espesially like the Roman legionare, Great use of accessories. How was the shield made?
wrap me in a bolt of lightning,
send me on my way still smiling,
maybe that's the way i should go:
straight into the mouth of the unknown....
