I thought I would share my progress as I think there is something worth seeing. The 'army' includes a number of the conversions which I have posted on the blog to date, including mounted officers, drummers, standard bearers and gunners which weren't available in the original range. With the exception of the guns, these are all 25mm S Range Recasts available from John Cunningham.
The whole army laid out together for the first time
Prussian Infantry with their mounted officers, standards and drummers.
Prussian Allies - The Wurttemburgers
Silesian Rifles - probably should have a trumpet not a drum, but haven't worked out that conversion yet!
Prussian Gunners. The guns are Krupp Guns from Old Glory's Sudan Range/British (CSG-002). They are very nice, but at £10 for 2 guns, I won't have many.
Wurttemburg Gunners - the original range which provided the basis for the conversions. The guns were an ebay purchase
Bavarian Gunners again the guns were another ebay purchase, they are a bit odd, but I can't work out whose models they are - Hinchcliffe?
I still have some one unit of Hussars, Dragoons and Cuirassiers to paint! The French opposition have a lot of cavalry!
Prussian Cavalry - with Cuirassier General
Uhlans in the background
Prussian Hussars with General
Bavarian Light Horse
Well that's it for now. Back to finishing off the cavalry and converting a Wurtemburg standard bearer and drummer and changing the 'eyes' of the Wurttembergs white horse which look a bit startling!
An impressive array ! , TonyReplyDelete
Yes, they are very impressive. For Prussian light guns you might want to try the Ral Partha Colonial Krupp guns listed under the Sudan section of their catalog. I have two batteries of them and they look good with the 28mm figures I use.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jim, the guns look nice. Can see an investment coming!ReplyDelete
