Battle of Murten 1476

Last week some friends and I visited another friend who moved into Switzerland some years ago.
We had a great trip, following Suworow's trail of 1799, visiting a lot of museums, the battlefield of Moorgarten (1313) and had a lot of fun.

For the Swiss the battle of Murten in which the Swiss mixed up a Burgundian army is a very important subject of their history.

In the "Landesmuseum" in Zürich is a very nice flat figure diorama where I shot these photos:

And yes - of course I think about remaking it in 1/72:-)

The next new set - at the court of the Ming Emperor

Thomas gave me the photos of the next masters of his steady growing range of the Samurai-Invasion of Korea 1592-98.

This time it is the Chinese high chief as mentioned above.
See here the photos of the masters made by Leo from Phersu-miniatures

Two more sets of Imperial guards will follow soon.

For those of you interested in the subject take a look at Thomas' range in our shop.

And if you don't know much about the subject and are interested to let your Japanese fight someone else beside other Japanese I suggest you this great book from Steven Turnbull

The battle of Hanau

Today I talked with two hobbyfriends about the battle of Hanau 1813.

One wanted to have Austrian Landwehr bataillons for 1813 (with corsican hat), the other told me it is a nice idea for a diorama but haven't there been a big one about the subject?

I checked my archive and found these photos from 2007 at the Intermodellbau. Udo Sixel with his friends started on the project and showed a small part of the diorama there. But I understood so far that it never came to life completely

For me as a Bavarian this is of course an interesting subject:-)

And again civilians - this time 30YW or ECW

My friend Rainer asked for these figures as he is working on a small diorama for the museum of his hometown. These are for an accident when the Swedish army came to Nidderau.

Well, I think these could be used for nearly all European wars in this period. And there are a lot of refugees in this period.

In a month they will appear in the shop too

Again new masters from Massimo - This time WW2

Gerrit asked for some "untypical" figures this time.

Here we have some Germans in cold weather and civilians. I think especially the latter ones are interesting for small dioramas.
