Battle of the Pyramides

 Some weeks ago, I have asked Arndt Wolfram, if he has new photos on his project of the battle in 1798. I like these Napoleonic "colonial" campaigns.

Of course I got some photos and I am glad to show them here. Most of the figures are from the hands of  Frank Ziegler.

A little Celtic-Roman diorama

 As you may know, our next diorama project is the battle of the Medway, which we put on show on the 28th May at the third Dioramica.

Beside the big thing, we will have some small vignettes on show too. Here is one from Marcus Münch

And talking about Ancients, Darek sculpted some more interesting figures. Roman Dromedarcorps and some Sicarius (Assassins)

Ceremonial entry of the emperor Franz, 1814 in Vienna

 Here now the latest set from Frank Ziegler. I think to complete your Austrian army, you need the Emperor.

Ok, don't need civilians in my bloody battle dioramas. But thanks God there are far more peace loving collectors who could use such Civilians - not only as Austrians:-)

Waterloo Dioramas at the Italian cavalry museum in Pinerolo

 As usual in the evenings, I work on my uniformarchive. This time, I took on the folder with photos from the Italian cavalry museum in Pinerolo.

There is a special room, dedicated to the battle of Waterloo. Beside vitrines with figures in all scales and a nice flat figure diorama, they have these little vignettes/dioramas on show.

A new set from Blackwatch - Seven years war Prussian Jäger

 When working on my Korbitz-Project I recognized several units are missing and from units that are available, most poses I need are not useful for what I have in mind.

So I thought, we will produce our own range, starting with units I need for Korbitz.

The first are Prussian Jägers. I need them for the two companies of Free corps Wunsch, but of course they go as regular light infantry too. Also they can used for Hessian and Hanoverian troops too.
