Franznap Lancers 2nd serie

Finally ready painted the test shot of the French Lancers; took me several months to finish but I'm glad to show you the possibilities of conversions due to separate arms and spare heads.

the mounting and dismounting lancers are quite useful and with a head change could be used as other units.

SEE THEM IN THE SCULPT&CAST CHAPTER

Franznap Lancers 2 Serie test cast

Finally i had some time for home casting the second Series of the French Line Lancers .

The spare heads and arms allows different variations, one horse has spare saddlecloth to be used as  private and officer one.

These tests are not ready for production, but help me to check the feasibility of the sculptures .

New lancers on sculpting phase

For completing this series i'm sculpting some standing figures, an officer in mantel, a mounting lancer, a standing one with different arms, a walking one, and a lancer in stable dress with pokalem, all will have different arms and accessories.

Because i received various requests for purchasing, i must inform you that for the moment I made a mold to cast them in resin, but n a very artisanal way, and though the detail is very good (see images in progress) they are not suitable yet for commercial use.... i'm in contact now with some possible producer...... stay tuned and i hope to have good news soon.
