Reinforcements

One of my gaming friends job means that they have to clear houses contents before they are put up for sale.

Last night I was given a rather interesting find from a house clearance.  A display case made of 1cm thick Perspex and rather heavy. Inside was a diorama of unpainted figures on basic sand terrain. A strange idea for a diorama

The figures are undoutably Nurnberger
Meisterzinn and although slightly larger than Prince August will nicely complement my existing armies. 

These will form the basis of a new Grenadier Battalion, of 24 figures plus 5 command figures, for the Electorate Furstenburg-lederhosen.

So what do I paint them as - the Erbprinz from Charge or perhaps the Saxon Lieb Garde in red and yellow.

You lucky duck! Both good uniforms, but these days, I'd opt for the Saxons in crimson and yellow.

Best Regards,

Lucky man,

It is indeed a strange diorama. But all to your benefit, Mark. You won't have to mess with stripping figures not painted to your standard.

Anyway, a good acquisition.

Regards,
Steve

It was good to see the game in York, it looked to be well supported, and always nice to see the 40mms out.

The Saxons will look good........I painted up 16 last year, and have just done another 16 to make an 'old school' unit.

Keep up the good work

Ok - Saxons it is. However as this is Imaginations they will be Maxon and will be allied to the Elector of Furstenburg - Lederhosen.
