Very fine sculpting by Steve. Had a look online of uniform photos and it should make for quite a sight fielding a unit of those. Surprised but not the slightest less enthusiastic to hear they carried axes as well.

Thanks Gribb. I agree, lovely work from Steve. Nice and slender the axes.
Best wishes,
Helen

Pistol whipping would be interesting. :-)

Hunlion

Yes, would be good. I do like the battle scene with a Honved infantryman wearing a captured cavalry helmet.

Best regards,

Helen

Yes Geoff, an odd figure in the rank and file.

Perry Miniatures will be releasing their Austrian Cavalry in plastic soon which has at least one helmet without the woolly crest so this might be right for a conversion on the existing Honved infantryman.

Cheers,

Helen

Hello peeps,

Here is the latest green of a Catholic Priest for the Hungarian Up-Rising. Sculpted by Steve Barber who has done an excellent job based on the illustration provided.

Can be used by both sides and for that matter most other nations.





Merry Christmas and happy New Year to you all.

Thanks for looking.

Best regards,

Helen

Additional information on the Catholic Priest that was sculpted by Steve Barber:

I think Steve captured this particular imagine well based on the brief given to him by me.

Thanks.

Austrian Infantryman advancing is the next green. This miniature will hopefully be converted into a grenadier, nco  and another headdress option.





Cheers,

Helen
