Some new photos from Thomas Mischak's Waterloo diorama

Thomas sent me these photos over - French lanciers at first

Next an idea from Frank Herberger. Use the little balls of a pen color cartridge as cannon-balls.

And here the result. Hey, this Highlanders are some of my own castings I did nearly 20 years ago. Good to see them here!

And finally he asked Ingo to sculpt him some dismounted French Train soldiers for the 1815 campaign.

More Bavarians in Rumford uniform for our range of the French Revolution

As a Bavarian it is natural that I want to have "my" guys in bigger numbers.
So I asked Massimo to expand the range of these figures with regular poses.

So now here are some more figures for this army. Cavalry and Artillery will follow too.

Here are the photos of new poses for the infantry.

With this backround I will arrange the set new.  I hope you like them.

We are Legion - a special exhibition in some Roman history museums in Germany

While searching the web I stumpled over a very interesting homepage.

Tirallieurs Anamite for Indochina 1880ies

When I started my own production several years ago I had some ideas for exotic campaigns. One of it is the French war in Indochina in the 1880ies.

The French Colonial infantry I painted from British Zulu war figures, the Zouaves I made with head-conversions.

The Problem were the enemies and the Colonial troops. So at first I asked Ingo to make me some Anamites which I have in the shop since the beginning.

I never went on with this subject because I concentrated on Wellington in India and some other ranges I had in mind.

Now I asked Ingo if he still can make me some figures to round up this range.
First the Tirallieurs Anamite, later some Black Flags.

Now I got the photos from Ingo. Well the first one has a full beard which is not the way of Vietnamese People. I will try to get a head-conversion here.  But the uniform is good and I have another unit to fight in the jungle:-)

Stefan Mayer sent me the photos of his latest diorama project.  Very nice, I haven't seen a siege in this period in 1/72 before.
