The British Grenadiers Paper-Soldier
New type of soldier enlisted on Paper-Soldier category, this is The British Grenadier from 18th century, 1763. Actually I already aimed this "Red Coat" soldier to be a paper-soldier for quite a long time. As I remember they appear in The Patriot movie (Mel Gibson) an old movie Zulu, and I believe there are more that I haven't watch yet. Just like their song, there's none compare with a tow, row, row of The British Grenadiers, that red coat frighten their enemy. In their time off course, when camouflage tactic was not invented yet and when cover to shoot was for cowards. I really like their patriotic song, I think it's very encouraging, and it's one of my favorite patriotic military march songs.

You can use any kind of paper that available on you, however every paper type has its own plus and minus. When you are going to make a paper model you should know the size of the built model, large size will need more thicker paper than the smaller one. Also there are some paper that can be printed with home printer (inkjet printer) but some don't, it must be printed with laser, offset printer or digital printing.
