Battle on the Lechfeld 955 AD

Last week while being on a business tour I crossed the battlefield of the Lechfeld in which the Ottonian German knights fougth the Hungarian hordes back.

There is a new museum in the city of Köngisbrunn in which they put a new flat figure diorama which I wanted to see. Beside the diorama and the battle-museum there is an archaeaolocial one in the same house, so worth a visit.

Ok, I stood in front the museum and recognised that two of the three museums have just opened on Sunday while the diorama is on show each working day from 8.00 to 12.00 and 15.00 to 18.00. I was there at 12.30....

But I will come back!!

Here some photos from the diorama, published in locals newspapers

And if you want to see the whole series of photos take a look at this official link from the museum at Königsbrunn.

Now, in 1/72 we can use all figures from the Anglo-Saxon/Norman range for the Germans. The Hungarians are a challenge. Here maybe some Eastern medieval horsemen from Orion or hopefully Alexander Gussev will take the subject in his hands:-))
