Austrian 22'ers

So far I have finished five of the six marching Austrians. Like with the Prussian variants the equipment is in various positions as one of the photographs show.
Thank you to all those viewers that are showing interest in this range of figures.
Hard to believe that these figures are 22mm, many have commented that they look more like my 30's.

Zorndorf

In this hobby one always needs to be planning a game to keep the creative juices flowing. So next up will be Zorndorf. I have always liked the Osprey book, Zorndorf 1758 written by AMG member Simon Millar. Plus the piece from Kronoskaf. So from these two works I will set-up my version.

The Set so Far

I have now completed the first Prussian set of 9 figures, officer, ensign, drummer, and 6 privates. NCOs will be made soon, but these will be action types for the rear/side of the rank and file (like my 30mm).
At some point in the future the figures in the photograph will be cast to make enough production castings.
Next up, the set of Austrian infantry.

Painted 22mm Austrian Officer

These wee figures nearly paint themselves....they are really easy and a joy to paint.
 
If it was not for the fact I have a huge 30mm collection, I would certainly consider painting SYW in this size.
 
The photos show the 22mm figure rather large, so forgive my painting. On my computer screen the first photo shows the 22mm figure a 100mm and in the third photo 80mm, so not very forgiving. At 6 inches the figure looks OK and could easily pass for a larger scale figure.

More Photos of the 22'ers +

Having taken a few more photos of the 22'ers + a 30mm Prussian NCO I painted yesterday, I thought I would share with Blog followers.

Figure Size Comparison

The photograph shows how the 22'er compares with 28/30mm figures.
 
The figure on the far right, as you view the photograph, is a larger miniature based on the artwork of Bob Marrion. Castings of this figure are currently in the Worldwide Postal System.
