Peter's Paper Boys March Again


Finally, I managed to complete this project, although I'm not entirely satisfied with the result. As a fan of American Military History, I've been following several authors on YouTube for some time. Among them, one of my favorites is Chris The Redcoat. I took the liberty of using a photo of him in uniform to create a paper miniature version, which I then adjusted to the scale of Peter Paper Boys.

The initial idea was to create a diorama of an entire brigade consisting of 4 regiments, but in the end, I managed to complete (almost) only one: the 54th (West Norfolk) Regiment of Foot. The other three, including Chris's regiment, are ready, but I still need to print and cut them. Trust me, this work is not as time-consuming compared to working on the originals and modifying the color details of the uniforms.

The choice of the 54th infantry regiment is because it is portrayed by another of my favorite authors, Brandon Fisichella. I populated the diorama using the Von Lossberg Hessian regiment that I snipped some time ago. Unfortunately, the limitations of my smartphone don't do justice to these beautiful paper soldiers created by Peter Dennis. But don't worry, we're only at the beginning of my journey.

I am continuing to experiment with new solutions to create fabric tabards featuring heraldry from Playmobil and Lego, as well as Game of Thrones. What do you think?

Capes! Flags! Tabards!! made of fabric

Some examples of my new experiment, making flags similar to the original Lego ones.

During this experiment I also had the idea of creating tabards and gambesons suitable for Playmobil characters.
