ST G-B 1 joined the Prussian army today as I completed basing the battalion. This grenadier battalion probably not in many collections, fought in some of the major battles during the SYW.
Yesterday, I received an email from a non-book owner, complimenting the figures shown on the AMG Blog. Part of the lovely email was devoted to the vignettes and how they brought to life the photographs.
The focus of my European collection is the marching figures and shouldered sabres for cavalry troopers. The 'specials' as I call them are focused on movement around the regiments with Officers and NCO types doing their job in keeping the rank and file in order. The Mollwitz game has a few hundred of these but the overall collection many hundreds more.
The plan this year was to concentrate on more 'specials' for both the AWI and Europe but Polish Winged Hussars and others have taken my fancy. So 2017 could well be, whatever I can do in Milliput channelled to having more metal castings.
The second photo shows Austrian Officers and NCO's trying to hold the line during the Mollwitz battle. Showing once again how boring marching figures can be enhanced by these little 'specials'.
