The next Austrian Grenadiers

 Leonid sent the next photos for the set of Austrian Grenadiers in the SYW. Hopefully next week he will finish the last figures and send them over.

I can't wait to get these figures for the Korbitz project. I hope to use them for Bavarian Grenadiers too.

BTW, the second from the left in the long row is a flutist:-)

The next new set for Spain 1808-1809

 Maybe you have recognized, that I want to complete the range of the Spanish army, my friends Pieter and Tony started at Hagen miniatures.

In the last month, Massimo sculpted the Spanish infantry marching and firing line. Now here comes the infantry command. 

In one of the next steps, I want to increade the old set of four Catalonian light infantrymen into our usual sets of 12 figures. Both versions of Artillery are already done, this leaves us a high staff and the rest of the cavalry units and we have enough to cover the battles of 1808 and 1809. Then we will see, what is the next range to complete:-)

3D Models from Peter Schuchhardt

 My friend Peter found his talent for creating 3D-models. You can imagine, what ideas came into my mind:-)

Here a selection of photos from his work.

The fortress artillery is teasing to me. We talked about a French Coastguard gun with a crew. For sure an interesting little diorama. 

On the other hand, I need vehicles and guns for Korbitz and the Franco-Prussian war too:-)

New figures for Hagen - and also for Korbitz

 Leonid started on a set of Austrian Grenadiers in the SYW. See here the first two masters.

Talking about Leonid's work, I have just finished some of the dismounted Prussian Hussars, which I need to fight the Austrian Grenzers in the woods at Korbitz.

These I've painted as the 7th Regiment Malachowski. I always liked the yellow uniform and was happy to see, they were involved in this fight.

Ancient Sudan

 I guess too many SYW posts are not everybody's cup, so here I want to show another one of Stephan Berry's fantastic little diorama.

When I hear about Sudan dioramas, I usually think about charging Derwishes. But here is something complete different
