New Masters from Massimo - Austrian Hussars 1848/49

In our fast growing range of Radetzky's army in Italy we have the next set available. I already got the castings last week.

The figures are also useful as Hungarian Hussars in 1849 to fight the Austrians in the Hungarian war of Independence (the prefered Definition of  my friend Krisztian from Hungary). Austrian sources call it the Hungarian uprising:-)

The plan is to get a complete Austrian army which fought in both these wars. Some of the Hungarian regular Units had the same uniform, some more other will follow.

A challenge are all the Italian Units. We start with the Swiss line regiments of the Papal army.

But now the Hussars - for sure they could be used as Napoleonic ones too!!

Franco Prussian war

Massimo sent photos of his painted figures. The French Chasseur Afrique is from the Solferino series he is making for my mates Patrick and Wolfgang.

The Prussian is a headconversion of our own Prussian infantry.

Both figures are of course also useful for other wars from 1850 to 1877...

The next set of French light infantry

I think these guys could also be useful for the battle of the Pyramides?

Here the next poses in this fast growing range from Frank.

French army, crossing the Danube 1809

Another great diorama at the Dioramica was Wolfgang's and Patrick's work on Napoleons Danube crossing at the battle of Aspern.

All the figures are sculpted by my mate Francesco (Franznap) miniatures and are of course for sell:-)
