Word War 2 in Italy

Usually WW2 is something I see on model shows and ususally small vignettes.

At the diorama is a nice diorama on display, WW 2 in Italy.

Great landscape and airbrush on the vehicles. The photos with the date are from my friend Rainer, the others are mine.

Charge of the Scotts Greys

At the dioramica I found a little nice vignette. This is something special for me. Wolfgang Meyer made it years ago and I can remember, I saw it in one of Kai Fuhrmann's Magazines in the 1990ies.

So for me this is nostalgic - and very good!

It Shows the end of the Charge, when they charged the French artillery before they themselves were taken on by the French lancers.

Three more Prussian Generals for the Seven Years war

Our friend Holger who already offers five Prussian Generals in our shop asked for three more Personalities.

Here come some more Prussian Generals. I remember one of them is General Werner (Hussar), but have to check my mails who the two others are.

These photos came from Massimo yesterday and I thought I simply need them for a new post:-)

A new year - a record - and new masters

Hi mates,

A new years starts, I have a lot of plans what figures to paint and on which dioramas I would like to work. I guess you have such plans too and wish, that your dreams come true!

Last week I passed the 1-Million-Hits mark. But when I see how many spams I have from strange sides which have nothing to do with our hobby I guess that is nothing to celebrate here.

But I am sure several hundred thousands are true visitors, so I will continue posting :-)

In one of our never-ending ranges we opened a new chapter. For the Franco-Prussian war we got some of the lesser known units (at least in this war) - Brunswick infantry.

See here the photos of the first Master Massimo made for it.

Between all the blue Prussians I guess this is something "colorful" :-)

Wiener Bürger Militär - Vienna militia 1809

Since the siege of Vienna 1683 the Austrians had several regular regiments of Militia in their major towns.

In the time of the Napoleonic wars the town of Vienna had three regiments of Infantry, two of Sharpshooters, a unit of cavalry and artillery.

Our hobbyfriend Manfred asked to get this unit, so we put it in the pipeline and Frank sculpted them for him. The research was a challenge this time as there were minor differences in the uniforms of the units.

Now we have finished the sets which cover the 1st and 2nd infantry and one of the sharpshooters as well as the Grenadiers.

You may recognize the Grenadiers and the sharpshooters. The two line infantry regiments had the same uniform, just the bandoliers of the NCO's was different.

We have all the units in parade formation, to celebrate the entrance of Archduke Carl into Vienna after the battle of Aspern.

For those of you who are interested in Austrian infantry without white uniforms, here are some plates.

The figures will be available in the shop within the next four weeks.
