|carriage of Frederick II.;30mm flat figures; painted by Werner Fechner|
Since yesterday evening I am member of the VFZ in Nuernberg, the Zinnfiguren Association, which exists already sind more than 50 years. There are some really good fellows there with absolutely fantastic painting techniques. The conventions are also always a good fund to get more informations about uniforms, equipments and staff of the 18. century.
Especially this carriage is an object of desire for me - it would be great to have such in 40mm scale, including the coachman and the footboys in hussar dolmans...
Next example is done by Mr. Mutzbauer, a scenery of the late 17. century about the uniforms of Kurbayern in 54mm. The tree looks extremely realistic, but it isn´t wood, it´s lead. Absolutely great how they are painted.
