Battle of Leuthen

With all these upcomming SYW figures from HAT, Kamar, Frededricus Rex  and Germania figures I thought it time to go deeper into the subject. As a German I have a huge ammount of sources in written books, hundreds of them available at google books.

As a Bavarian I have the chance to visit the Bavarian army museum in Ingolstadt regulary. Here is the 17.000 figure diorama of Leuthen on display. Ok, flats, but great!







Just in case you like it, I have much more photos of this great diorama.

One of the details of the battle is the storming of the Churchyard defended bei the Imperial regiment "Rot Würzburg" against the Prussian guards.



And because this is a blog about 1/72 figures I have to offer two photos from Ingo - the Church at Leuthen.
Well, Ingo is a master of art in my eyes!!

  1. That's a very impressive diorama!

    How far is this museum from Berchtesgaden, please? If it isn't to far I might consider to visit it this summer.
