Belgians after 1914

ACtually the Beglians did look quite a bit different from the French, although one could dispute that at a 1/72 scale this may not be that obvious... Anyway, here goes:

- The helmet had a lion (Ok, that's tiny...)
- Belgians didn't use puttees or had them covered by leather gaiters, or wore short breeches or riding boots.
- The Belgian back-pack was considerably smaller than the French one
- Finally, if I am not mistaken, the coat worn by the Belgians looked differently from the French one, which did not seem to have 2 or 3 buttons in the back...not sure about this one, perhaps somebody has better info.

Re: How about a personality set?

With this boom, how about a personality set?

Re: Re: Am I the first to notice...?

They will probably be in the same stupid format as the other recent Italian-manufacture sets, such as Italeri, but, as long as there are no really unusual poses, I don't really care. I'm looking forward to using these men as Greeks for the Greco-Turkish War of 1920-22, to face off against the Kemalists at Inonu or Eskishehir. Also, I think that the figures would work for WWI Rumanians, who wore the Adrian helmet, as well as WWII Rumanian reserve units whose uniforms were not updated until 1942. Finally, Italian reserve coastal artillery units during the 1943 invasion of Sicily continued to wear the old WWI uniforms, so there are some possibilities here as well.

Re: Re: Am I the first to notice...?

Is it me or are some of the RedBox British copies of Strelets Boer War British? Either Strelets and RedBox are one in the same as I originally thought, or RedBox employs the same sculptor.

We aren't same!
