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.
After showing the pictures of the fighting units, I now want to show you what is behind the french redoubts.
I am very proud about this jungle on which Schmitty is working here. The French account says that part of their tents were whithin this jungle
Here the photos of the finnished one
Behind the wood the French camp. Regiment Aquitaine in reserve position here as well as some volontaires etrangeres as camp guards. The latter in the light blue uniform.
No these are not British Sepoys:-) first the French thought that a red uniform would be a nice uniform for their units. Well, they changed their mind soon...
Because of the French countercharge in the center the regiment Royal Bourbon (colonial unit from Reunion) advanced forward to occupy the trenches. This was a regiment of blacks.
Here some members of the French staff
Together with their guard of cavalry from the Royal Etrangeres.
Behind the camp we put a little part of the town occupied by some irregular Mysoreans or Afghan mercenaries
With these buildings behind the French line, we don't have to forget that the British right wing didn't attack the French line. Their artillery lost the duell with the heavy French artillery. Here we have the 78th Highlanders.
This is a fakirs tomb which stood on this position on the battlefield. Alfred and Roland found a drawing and simply thought "let's make it".
And here the British artillery. I was able to use the Strelets British artillery from their Napoleon in Egypt range.
But more funny for me, I was able to use finally my British elephant artillery from Hinchcliffe.
