25 Amazing Plasticine Soldiers

Amazing Plasticine Soldiers

Posted on March 2, 2011 by

Modelling from placticine was an amazing hobby of Alyona’s father who had suffered a serious illness and finally died. He modelled miniature soldiers from placticine. He had mastered his skills over the years and the work of his hands is so amazing. He has created  several armies.  Lets get to know about the history of these armies as they go with us through the journey of time…

The very first soldiers are over 30 years old. Alyona’s father made them when he was a young kid. These soldiers did not have faces since they were used as toys. These soldiers used to have battles that lasted hours –  from morning to evening –  as long as the kids wanted.  They had specific battle rules and could shoot from their guns, make various army formations and so on. But as the kids grew, the game got boring and the soldiers were no longer able to go to battle.

The soldier are dressed according to their historical reality. Before he modelled them, Alyona’s father had read tonnes of history and war books; even in their original language. He read all through- from horsebreeds to the color of the soldier’s gloves.

    Really amazing work which definitely deserves to be shown to a broader public. I wish Alyona all the best for the future and she can be proud of having such a devoted father.

    Those should be in a museum or something similar.

    That way they can be displayed properly, and be well taken care of.

    That is some beautiful, intricate work.

  8. Aaron says:

    I agree George! These are a beautiful work, worthy of proper preservation. Even online fundraising might help them get to additional care without disappearing into a private collection.
