This month no Romain, but still a Asterix figure....

This is my version of Bonaparte Napoleon...

Who started as a Romain officer from the Asterix bubble gum range.
Buying the figures on my search to Romain solders, does result on lots of double ones.
So I thought to converse this one to the famous Bonaparte Napoleon. 

First I cut away a lot of the original figure, and started with a trouser.
I used tissue paper and white wood glue for this.

Then drilled 2 holes in his head, and made a frame from a paperclip.
Then with milliput made his hat, yeah at this point he got the Nappie look...

Next step was making his new clothes from more tissue and white wood glue.

Here you see his coat, one of the 3 layers tissue with just a small drup of glue.
Putting it on looks strange, but when it's dry it looks okay!

Then the last part, give him a bit of color...

I am really happy with the end result. 

Just look to the original figure, and the scratch Napoleon!
Do you see the difference between these?

I used these 2 photo's for the colors, and okay he isn't all 100% in the right color
but I guess it will do for this figure...

Hope you like him as much as I do!


  1. Superb work on the conversion as well as the painting. :)

  2. Now that would have taken lots of time Remco.

  4. Hi Remco! I think he looks Fantastic!!! What a transformation! I thought for sure you had a real "Napoleon" figure to start with! It is great to see the materials you used to make his costume.... the hat is very well done! And I like the way he looks a little surprised!
