Dennewitz 1813

 This week I've talked with Rüdiger about the Korbitz project. We need two villages for the diorama. One hold by the Austrians who get attacked by the Prussians.

The other village the Prussian put to the torch to cover their retreat, while a rearguard try to hold back the Franconian troops from the Reichsarmee. 

So I searched for photos of buildings in my collection to get some ideas. I found this series of photos from Ingo's 2008 Dennewitz project. It is done in our usual style of groundwork. So I must say, I like it:-)

 The French and Prussians are Art-Miniaturen, while the Saxons were castings from Ingo's early conversions. 

The buildings are all selfmade. I have the luck to have some of Ingo's houses from our Aspern project. They are great.

Fortress Rosenberg 1806

 The Fortress of Rosenberg is located in upper Franconia. 

I am wondering, how Patrick came to this subject, but as a Bavarian I like to see one of our Fortresses covered in a diorama at his museum.

The Turkos arrived

 ok - on the diorama it will go the other way - they were pushed out of the woods and made a stand against the charging Bavarians.

Ireland 1798

 You know, I am always after the lesser known subjects. Seven years ago, at the Salute in 2014 (hope for the next without Covid and hopefully not much taxes for my buys), the London Warlords put this very interesting game on show. 

I think for most of the British militia I can use my AWI British. For the French and Irish in french uniform HAT or Schilling figures. The Irish militia itself is a challenge for my knive:-) There are already enough Revell American militia and Imex Alamo defenders lying around.
