Spanish cavalry for the war of the Spanisch sucession

Pieter already got a set of Spanish Grenadiers and Füsiliers made by Ingo.

Now he asked for cavalry too and this is what is on the way to Hagen




I asked Ingo to remove the beard of the right hand one. Great figures in my eyes and for sure useful for other armies of this period too.

New photos for the shop

We plan to bring a better system in the shop. Especially the photos of the figures which are my responsibility could be better.

So I asked Massimo if he has some nice photos from his sets. Well, he overwhelmed me with a lot of them which I want to show them to you too.

Franco-Prussian war 1870 - a diorama and new figures

Our hobbyfriend Frank Salles sent me these photos. I always like to see dioramas about one of my favorite subjects!






Here some painted figures from Patrick's and Wolfgang's Solferino project. See more about this project at Benno's forum. Beside the loading poses, all these guys could be used for 1870-71 too.





And because this is the case I started a project "1848-1878".  This means to cover the following wars in future projects:

1848/49 Italy
1849 Hungary
1853/55 Crimean war
1859 Risorgimento (ok, the guys project, but we can add the Italians)
1864 Prussian/Austrian/Danish war
1866 German-Austrian war
1870/71 Franco-Prussian war
1878/79 Russo-Turkish war

The first set here is Radetzky whom I already showed on the blog. And here are the first of three sets of Prussian infantry for 1866 and 1870/71. They will appear in the shop within the next 4 weeks.
