Hello, and here we go,
First I tried to do a comparable conventional Army with mostly Austrian Troops due to the very similar Uniform (I Used your sets 8060 for Infantry 8081 for Machineguns, 8245 Austrian Gun to avoid another Army with French 75 and Austrian Artillery Crew 8258) but the result looked (surprisingly) very much more Austrian, so I had to do something to give the Army a more typical Romanian look. With this In mind, I stumbled over a Website that showed the Dorobantzi Light Infantry and then I got the really nice Idea to use my surplus Royal Marines (from you Set 8098 that I bought to get some Pirates and Sailors for my Gunboat Project) to do the Dorobantzi. The Cavalry from another Manufacturer also got a very typical look with their white trousers and now I´m really glad with the result.
This was my sixth Balkan War Army, I will continue (and finish) this series with Pictures from the Cretan Gendarmes, Malisorri Tribal Warriors, IMRO and Makedonimachoi Fighters that are actually on my Workbench (and a few new proposals what you can do with your ACW Zouaves set 8004)
This was my fifth Balkan War Army (after Ottoman, Serbian, Montenegrin and Bulgarian) and I will continue with my Romanian Army.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Greetings from Germany
