Taking the eagle and more Bavarians

Here I have photos from Massimo's latest work which I will hold in my hands next weekend:-)

The Scott's Greys at Waterloo of course. But we can try to make Royal Dragoons too.







And here two new figures for my Revolutionary range. I already started to paint some of the fighting guys for my collection. Oh, I like this uniform:-)

BTW, we can use this guys also for the Emigrant Legion Mirabeau

Cape Warriors

I guess all the 28mm collectors (and for sure the rest of the community too) know the figures and books from the Perry-brothers.

While I am an 1/72 man, so the 28mm range is not my cup of tea (ok, they are teasing...) their books are always worth their price.

After "Go strong into the dessert" I know got my copy of "Cape Warrior".
You know I am always after the lesser known subjects. In this book we have covered these campaigns very well in my eyes.


So if you are interested in the subject, go for this book which has btw several good color-drawings of soldiers from both sides.

And of course there are figures available in 28mm





But who hasn't said not in 1/72? :-) Take a look at these old figures from Ulf Debbeler sculpted after Bill Horans diorama "Incident at the Waterlkloof".

My visit at the Playmobil Funpark in Zirndorf/Germany

Ok guys, this time I have something real special:-)

With my children I visit the Playmobil park 1-2 times a year. Cheap for a park and you get Playmobil at special prices.

While they played with the toys there I made a small walk to a special exhibition about the history of Playmobil. Funny to see the original packs of my own first Playmobil figures in the early 70ies.

I know a lot of collectors who make wargames or dioramas with Playmobil figures. So I thought this photos of their special exhebitions might be of interest do figure collectors too.

Pirates vs Redcoats








Mongols or anything similar





A journey around the world

A lot of new stuff from Hagen

I am sitting now for two hours to put new figures in our shop. Under the lable on this blog I put a small button "here you can buy our figures" as I often get mails from people who don't know the shop.

This time Andy was busy and casted a lot of figures and still much more will follow. This time we have focused mostly on Napoleonics but have some more Ming-Chinese and Samurai too. The latter range is the fasted growing in our range.

For example we got Russian Guard-Grenadiers from Leonid. Polish units for the 1794 uprising will follow soon.


A dream of mine came true. From my own production I have the Bavarian infantry in the 1790ies Rumford uniform which they wore in the French revolution






And as my friend Pieter asked me if they ever fought, here a painting of Bavarians in combat:-)


Also the French Dragoons I showed on the blog some weeks ago and a lot of others. Just take a look at the shop:-)

Crush the Kaiser

I found these photos from November 2013 on my PC in the section "nice wargames".

1914 western front with 1/72 HAT, Strelets and Airfix figures. I prefer this kind of WW1 warfare to the trenches with fighting for a few inches of ground.







I also found a small video about it...

Chunuk Bair in 54mm

Have you seen this great diorama from this blog?

I haven't seen it in reality, but the size must be impressing as this is all 1:35 scale.
And a great paintjob of course!
