Russia: Commander and officer

Happy about a figure of the new Matthias Manske´ edition, "the officer greeting the king", which ment the original proposition to paint this officer as a prussian one, standing in front of Frederick the Great. I combined him with the General Apraxin, horse-riding, regarding the battlefield of Groß-Jägersdorf in East-Prussia. The figures are in 40mm, placed on a vignette of 7x7cm.

Russia: Permski regiment finished

The second long-during project is finished now, my first complete Matthias-Manske-Regiment in 40mm. They are freely composed of different figures of his collection, I just wanted to have the advancing character of the whole rank. So, I like very much the different way they hold the weapon, looking in different directions, marching and falling wounded - and all in the white biten dust of the battlefield.
My russians wear winter uniforms in the typical dark green. Next regiment will get the summer dresses in red.

Prussia: Infanterieregiment No 13 finished

Finally, Prussia´s infantery is completed by the new regiment No 13 "Itzenplitz". The light yellow tone is a good contrast to the other regiments we have. The figures are from Sash&Saber, the flags by Manske and printed in computer.
The backgrounds are sceneries from original silesian pictures.
Well, Scheckinator - good prepared for the summer campaign in Switzerland!

News from my workplace

Dear followers, dear readers
sorry for this long silence in my blog - it was dued to a big, busy time in the University and in urban design projects - working nights long, the soldiers´ program gots a break.
I am still working on 2 regiments: the prussian 13th regiment "Itzenplitz" for Scheckinator:
The figures are from sash&saber.

And the russian regiment "Permski", the city close to the Ural, which is compsoed by marvellous figures of Matthias-Manske. I mixed the marching ranks with some wounded and fallen fellows, which gives a more dramatical effect.
More pictures soon, I guess I will finish at the end of this week.
