WWII - German Infantry

Unbelievable! I found the time to paint a figure.  The figure is from the revell set "Deutsche Panzergrenadiere 1944".

Here are some photos...

HäT 8174 - Brunswick Cavalry

The order and the delivery

I remember very well that I ordered this set in December 2012.  At that time HäT has had announced this box and my vendor offered this set. After ordering my supplier told me , there were delivery problems and he would send it to me later. So far so good. Since I had not yet paid for the goods, I forgot the purchase order with time. As you'd probably imagine my surprise and delight when the set on 06/13/2015 finally has arrived with me. A long time without cavalry. During this time If felt like Lee in Gettysburg waiting for J.E.B Stuart ;-)

The box


The sprues

The box contains 3 identical sprues with a total of 12 troopers and 12 horses and some additional parts.

The troopers

As you can see on the picture the sprue contains two different kind of troopers. Three Hussars and one Lancer from a Light Squadron. In addition, the sprue contains arms and weapons for exchange.

The second from the left is the Lancer, the others are Hussars. 
Please have a look on the rifles and the rifle butts. I think it's a funny construction :-)

The horses

One sprue contains four horses in two identical poses.

WWI - German Army

Other figures I started painting a year ago and now they are finished. The figures are from Caesar Miniatures and the scale is 1/72. The quality of the figures is very good and it has caused me a lot of joy to paint them.

DAK Revell 1/32

At the moment I'm busy with painting the horses of the French Dragoons and while the oil paints are drying I used the time to continue painting this figure. The figure comes from an old Revell set and the scale is 1/32. I started some time ago with the painting of the figure, somehow lost interest but now it was a nice break from all the horses. All that's missing now is a small base for the figure.  Maybe I get some ideas in the next time.

20th Regiment - French Dragoons (5)

Hello my dear friends!

I'm still alive and I'm back :-)

Almost a year has passed on this blog since my last post. The past year has given me a lot of work but also brought osteoarthritis in the fingers. This is also the reason why I don't have paint figures for so long. 

But now I have finished the troopers of the 20th Regiment. Okay, still without horses. By the time the horses are painted, the'll just have to go on foot. But that's not a problem because they're  Dragoons ;-)

I hope with the horses it will not last as long as with the troopers.
