We are a group of Enthusiasts from all over the world, mostly Germany, who create historical battles in scale 1:72.
As we do this since more than 10 years we thought it is time for our own blog.
Being a historical enthusiast I wanted to fulfill my dream of producing my own figures in this scale too. So I started working with several sculptors to produce exotic figures in 1:72 which I fear nobody else would bring on the market.
Puh when I remember that these photos are 10 years old now but the memory of it still fresh. Seeing the guys we all had less grey hairs and looked anyway healthier:-)))
Here Alfred and Schmitty are glueing the woods on plates
Old John prefered Rebell lines advancing
Tons of boxes full of figures to organise. We needed a lorry to bring all the stuff to build up the diorama. Have I mentioned that it was 80 meters in square?
Several units had to have being rebased. Alfred and Ingo doing the job
I remember the first time Peter Herfen brought this plate to one of Alfred's collectorsmeetings. Simply wooden tothpricks, cut in half and then "peel" them. Afterwards paint them green and you have your maize-field. Very impressing and a lot of work...
Ups - just in between the union fire from the flank into Pickets corps...
Putting the based units on the plate before our usual mix of stuff is to be poored over it.
A battle is not just fighting - These guys are fortunate to have time to relax while getting released. Others in a firing line are not so lucky....
Thomas Förstmann made these great houses for us.
To build up the diorama we needed 16 hours. And this work just for a two-days-exhibition. Well, it seems we are enthusiasts to tell it friendly:-)
