    French Soldier

    Here is a figure that I did a few years ago but redid recently. I gave him a frog shirt and made something that could pass as the French NVG mount on the helmet. I know the mustache is not really accurate but I think it made him look very French. Let me know what you think and any suggestion are welcome.

    very nice indeed! I have thought of butchering some of my Bruno shirts to make frog shirts. Very nice detail on this, and great weathering. Those boots look good. I have been looking around for some good desert ones for my ACE legionnaires when they are released.

    This is by far the best looking French Trooper I have ever seen :P
    Especially love the weathering on the FAMAS! Great work!

    Nice job,

    Did you mod the FAMAS, I'm used to seeing them with bipods.

    CHEERS!

    Very nice. I would like to know how you did the mustache. One of my figures is in need of one. I was thinking about using thin double back tape and my own hair...lol.

    Re: French Soldier

    Thanks guys,

    rogerbee - I did remove the Bi Pod arms. I think it looks a bit better and I saw a ref pic of one so I thought why not.

    delusional - It is the crazy dummy brad pitt HS with a goatee. I just covered the lower part with the hood.
