Soldier Pictures and Uniforms

I've always been fascinated by pictures of soldiers... these sites have some great pictures!

Uniforms of the Napoleonic Wars. Great drawings both colour and black and white showing napoleonic era uniforms from Historex toy soldier kits.

Uniforms of soldiers in the Waterloo Campaign 'Cent Jours' 'Hundred Days'. Loads of detailed illustrations make up this great resource. A considerable piece of work!

British Army Uniforms drawn by Arthur H. Bowling. This site shows the delightful artwork of Arthur H. Bowling - they'd make the most gorgeous paper soldiers regiments!

Bavarian Uniforms I think these Bavarian uniforms are great. The first full paper soldier force I made was a Bavarian Army. Lovely colours, great hats - (Raupenhelms - great for keeping sandwiches in?!) these drawing are extenisve and charming by a 19th century artist called Johan Baptist Cantler.

Prussian army Uniforms a site showing delightful postcard type illustrations of german military uniforms.

Napoleonic Battle Re-enactment

Walking amongst a re-enactment camp is a strange and rich experience. At Waterloo in 2008 I felt at times to be in an episode of startrek on the planet Napoleon. see my pics here.

The 2nd Light Battalion King's German Legion its mostly in german but has great pictures and infomation

French 2nd Dragoons mostly in french, it has great photos of the re-enacters in action which aren't hard to find!

The Napoleonic Association A UK based organisation involved in the co-ordination of all things Napoleonic from battle and camp re-enactments to historical research and wargaming.

Paper Soldiers

Paper Soldiers By Edward Ryan. I'd seen this book once in a shop window in London. when I began this project I had a great excuse to hunt it down on line and buy it. It is the fullest resource I've come across on paper soldeirs and its littered with great pictures of toy soldiers. I've also been in touch with Edward Ryan and he has been a generous supporter of my project.

Billy Bones Workshop. Found these by accident one day... I think they're smashin!! Wood cut stylee-ish landscapes and armies of the English civil war... Very very nice! After watching 'The Devil's Whore' the other week I'd love to have a go at some soldiers from this period... in lavish licking Rembrant oils of course!

Paper Soldiers by A.G. Smith. I'm unsure of the history of these American Civil War paper soldiers... they are nice although I find their sanity a little too dry... When I was younger I bought some ACW card soldiers, unlike my Walkerloo figures they were truly double sided but very small with only sufficent detail to justify 1:72 ish scale... they weren't these, although they were very like them!

The Paper Armies of Patrick Crusiau. Patrick has drawn a whole bunch of cartoon figures and lets you down load them for free!

Junior General is the home of thousands of paper soldiers! They're made by a whole host of contributers although Matt Fritz is the site's creator and administrator. Perhaps more for 'war games' than 'war play' there are soldiers from almost every period plus buildings, vehicles, equipment etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. And everything on the site is FREE, FREE, FREE!

Another web 'thing' by me.

www.Easterlegs.com is an animated website I spent a lot of time on. Imagine if the best selling Christmas gift and the best selling easter gift had children.... impossible? Explore The home of the Easter Legs! There are over twenty minutes of original animation, but you have to seek it out, click and explore the completely animated web picture www.Easterlegs.com.
