Saxony: ammunition wagon

Hoping not to bore you with my Saxon army details, I cannot conceal my affectation for the Saxon army of the 18. century. This is the last module in completing the artillery corps and the formation is ready for the warfare. It is again a very nice ensemble done by Matthias Manske in 40mm. With respectable details and true to original in proportions and composition, it is again a wunderful work of Matthias Manske. I placed 7 soldiers around the waggon and all of them on a plattform 20x10cm.
The Saxon artillery train was painted in this particular creosote-tone with yellow fittings and the coverage in brilliant red. I put the carpenter beside in his grenadeer uniform.

as you can see, there are some good old NMZ and Prince August figures among them...

The complete Saxon artillery corps with commander, flag, batteries and waggon.


  1. That's quite a pretty set-up!

  2. It's not boring to the few around the world who know what you're doing there. It's good work, including the photography and in fact evokes a sense of being an eyewitness to the actual scene in time.

  3. Superb stuff; I'll have to get one of those ammo wagons

  4. Not boring in the least. Most of the time the logistics get neglected. It's the attention to detail which makes a project stand out.


  5. Thanks to all of you - it´s such a honour for me!
    I plan to buy Stephen Summerfield´s book "Saxon Artillery 1733-1827" containing all needed informations about this Saxon corps. I only found an extract of it in the net and was fascinated - the red cover of the waggon was found there.
