Mathias (EsDoc)
is our September 2003 Featured Guest from Germany


Mathias lives/works in Peine/Lower Saxony/Germany. His "collection" is centered around the French army of the year 1813 (pre-Leipzig). Mathias has been into creating these uniform conversions using playmobil-figures for almost 10 years now. The collection currently numbers about 1,800 figures of which about one third are fully dressed and equipped. Other than the French troops he has built a few Prussians (1813) as well and some British troops (from the 1815 campaign in Belgium). For any questions/suggestions/critiques email Mathias at: olk99@aol.com

Wow!! This looks really great!
I wonder where people find the time to do such vast amounts of conversions, though!!!

I wonder where people find the time as well! Can he be persuaded to write up a section about his customisations?

Looks fantastic - although I think there has gone plenty of time and expertise in the conversions.
Even the swords are all converted, by the looks of it.
Really awesome - imagine the impact an entire battlefield must have!

Love the Gordon Highlanders The kilts and hats look great, and that banner is splendid.
Very inspiring. Very Excellent!!
There is definitely reward in "striving for excellence."

Cheers!

These are amazing...my favourites have to be the Mamelukes.... but they are all incredibly impressive.
Almost as impressive is how Mathias managed to get the entire Light Cavalry Brigade to stay upright on grass for the duration of a photocall. Amazing!
