Combat of Domstadl 1758

To continue with the Seven Years war, Stefan sent me photos of his latest diorama project.

It is about a lesser known subject, the comabat of Domstadl. The Austrians attacked a Prussian convoi in 1758

To read more about it, go in my favourite SYW page atkronoskaf.

Now the photos. Ok, we won't talk about infantry, countercharging attacking cavalry:-)

A German airfield in WW1

I stumpled over this diorama, when visiting the technical museum in Munich. They have some originals there too.

And finally the surviving airplane of the brothers Wright, which they brought to Munich in 1903

3rd century armies

We started a new project of lat antiquity warfare. Our hobbyfriend Hugues saw one of my older posts about the Roman army in the third century and asked, if we could increase the range.

Now we joined forces and together with Darek we took on the challenge.

See here the first photos of Palmyrian (or Roman) infantry.

And here some plates of this kind of armour

 I think the main difference between Palmarians and Romans is the shield and the trousers.

We will continue with the Palmyrian guards and also go for light cavalry on camels. My thoughts are about more enemies for the Parthians/Sassanids and also some Armenian troops.

Another idea are the Roman Dromedaries, of whome I already wrote.
