    Hi friends, begins the creative period for me. At the beginning I created a bust of Morocco goumier of the French Expeditionary Corps in Italy.
    In Italy were no popular for their population handling of the .......
    To me, however, liked the idea of WWII soldier in pajamas. : P: D
    I hope you will like it.

    Excellent. I'm not a huge WW2 fan but this IS one of my favourite uniforms/units. Is this a one-off or are there plans for a commercial release? This is one i would be very interested in.(y)

    hello,

    this is a nice rendering of our goumiers ! I like the face which features the typical arabic facial expression.
    The goumiers were fearless marocan moutain fighters, all volunteers. The Germans learned that in Corsica and Italy. They were the one of the very few french troop which were legally authorised to do razzia, which is the arabic name for pillage/looting.
    The pyjama as you said is called a djellaba.
    best,
    julien
