Marketenderin 2016

I only found a few photos of the Marketenderin from recent reenactment of the Battle of  Königgratz  I suspect that they were taking the 1000's of photos on line of the reenactment. Several women portraying Prussian and Austrian Marketenderin are shown here. I think that these women made militarized dresses based on their unit's uniform rather than from period sources.

Republican and Imperial Mexicans.

A few quick conversions to make Juarez's Republican Mexican troops and Maximilian's Imperial Mexican army. First. Chinese knock off MARX CW figures as Imperial Mexicans

Next. IMEX, Chinese knock-off, HERALD , and ACCURATE Republicans in various unifroms

Steve Weston Mexican Peasants

Marksmen CW as Republican troops

IMEX CW as Republican Artillery

Two IMEX CW as dismounted Imperial Mexican Lancers

These will possibly be actors and extras in a new story.

Armies In Plastic Rev War conversions

I made a unit of Rev-War militia with the AIP stock figures and All The Kings Men spare heads.

All The Kings Men sell 54mm war game figures and sell numerous styles of spare heads that are great for converting large-ish 54mm figures like AIP figures.


AIP's firing poses are very stylized.

New Paragon Firing Union Soldiers

Paragon's lumpy sculpting style and out of scale belt buckles again. Some good poses, some not.

 Toy soldier companies! Please stop doing this! The two knee kneel is not good for more than one figure. You cannot build units of this pose as the soldiers were trained to fire on one knee for stability and ease of  standing up. This means you Conte and Armies In Plastic!

12 figures for $ 22 USD
