Updated Prussian Infantry Uniform
I have just perfected the uniform of the Prussian Army.
About this creation
If you're looking for the actual data about the Prussian infantry, refer to here:
http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/124895


This type of uniform is called a Waffenrock[VAH-FEN-roak]. In German, it literally means "weapon-skirt." It is more of a tunic, however. The Prussian Waffenrocks were famous for their beautiful dark, deep blue color- and thus the term "Prussian Blue" was born.

The only thing I wasn't able to get was the Y-straps(suspender-looking things on the front of pretty much every German combat uniform from 1842-1945). If anyone knows how to get those, please let me know.

PLEASE COMMENT!

Quoting Thomas N Looks like we both use the exact same design of Lego gun, is that just a coincidence or what? ~T
It's the same design Architect of Vonthako came up with as well. I got the idea from him. It's probably the best conventional lego gun design I've ever seen.

Quoting Architect of Vonthako Yeah, it's real simple: just choose the "Save As" option from the file menu, and then select "LDraw Files" and type ".ldr" after the file name. I'm planning on posting a tutorial of how to use LeoCAD/LDraw one of these days.
Sounds awesome! Thanks for the info!

Quoting Architect of Vonthako BTW, have you tried rendering your LeoCAD models in LDView (like I do)? They look much nicer that way, and you have more control over the lighting. You'll need to install the LDraw parts library (and MLCAD will also be a big help). You should also make sure you have the latest updates for both LeoCAD and LDraw (you can find all the links on my homepage). I can also help you set custom colors for when you render your models from the .ldr files (you will need MLCAD). As for the Y-straps, send me a picture (to the gmail account) of what you want the uniform to look like, and I can make a custom decal of it for you to use in LeoCAD. Take a look at my Roman Legionnaire ( http://mocpages.com/moc.php/161993 ) to see what I mean. I can also teach you how to make the decals on your own (just post in the Virtual LEGO Creations group).
WOW. I'm going to have to talk to you more tomorrow when I have more time... when we do, I must learn how to convert LeoCAD files into .idr files, plus I'll give you a nice picture of a Prussian soldier. THANKS!
