Rüdiger Fischer made a great diorama with his SYW Prussian Pioneers

When Andy put this little gem at our stand for display in Kulmbach I was speechless. Such I think I have never seen before in 1:72. The next was, that I put the whole set of Rüdigers figures in my own bag:-))

See here what I mean. Maybe not only useful for the SYW but with a little conversion for other 18th and 19th century sieges.

Sorry for the very bad photos, I hope to have better ones soon. 





For those of you who want to add some more technical aspects in their SYW collection these figures are available at Hagen-miniatures

I have seen another interesting manufactor, Matthias Manske who had them also new at Kulmbach. But these figures here are some 45-50 mm figures from a manufactor who started to make figures in the size of the old Nürnberger Meisterzinn moulds I had in my childhhood. If you are interested in these figures here is his homepage.  A nice range, but too big for me. It shows another possibility for using the sappers

  1. Agreed! I might just need to order some to see how they might fit in with my own armies.

    1. Dear Cem,

      the Ottoman army and their military history is one of my interests. I even plan to produce such an army for the period 1787-1812 in addition to my Crimean war army.

      thank you for putting your collection on the web too!

      All the best
      uwe
