If you want to consider other scales then Pendraken do a big range in 10mm (some 35 packs)

I'm currently working on a 28mm 1848 Schleswig range.  I have currently 6 poses completed of advancing figures 2 in shako, kepi and field cap in production moulds.  I'm currently having the designer completing a command group and 4 artillery crew figures.
I will cover the first few months of the war first by completing figures for both sides.

I plan to cover the full range this will be a slow process as I'm doing it for myself, I have had a couple of people interested in purchasing the figures, it is not a company producing the figures just me as an individual.  As I get pictures/progress I will post on this website.

At the moment getting 1/2 finished dollies for the Guard and jagers, it took time and alot of help to get the correct bearskin.  Whilst thts being done I'm getting some figures completed for the SH troops in fatigue/shell jacket.  For the Prussians a 3D/sculpted advancing figure.

Update
The figures have been master moulded and have gone back to the designer

I have nearly completed the Jagers officer and two advancing figures awaiting the firing and bugler figures, will receive also in the next batch the life guard 6 figures - command set and 3 foot figures.

I've done head swops on the Danish firing line shako's and field cap's, and converted the current figures to shell jackets for SH troops

preparation work will be also underway on the dragoons - this will be command officer and bugler, troopers with carbine and sword.

Latest news are the Guard and the extra figures for the Jagers.  It will slow down as I know start moulding the figures.
It will be two figures to help me fill a master mould jager carrying company flag and ? possibly a Danish volunteer.

Hi All

Moulded the Prussian advancing figures, lovely figures.  Planning the command next.  This week will mould the SH advancing, firing line and artillery crews.

Back to the designer are the Danish dragoons for completing and the two remaining figures for the danish volunteers.  It will be a toss up between the freikorp or the Hannoverians ( prep work done for starting - shako, musket and backpack).

None no, all danish infantry carried percussion cap muskets or rifles, the only troops to carry a flintlock was the cavalry but that changed to percussion cap fairly quickly.  Some of the SH friekorp foot will have carried flintlocks - personal weapons etc.

I just ran across this thread - really amazing. I have been working on doing conversions in 28mm for the 1st Schleswig-Holstein War for about 3 years, and this coming Wednesday is my first actual game!

Dave Pen: do you have any interest in letting other people get ahold of these figures? I am very interested in both this conflict and in the Baden revolution, which you mentioned.

Beautiful work!

Thanks for the comment, moulded the latest batch and I've sent back to the designer dollies for doing the Holstein troops in Prussian style uniform in feldmutz and completing the Hanoverian dragoons.  I've  also sent back the masters of the Baden line in tunic to convert the heads to field cap (looks like a tall kepi without the peak) I low temp moulded the figures to ensure they survived the moulding process.  As well I've sent back the heads of the Saxe Coburg Gotha to do the greatcoat unit. After that it will be on to the Mecklenburgers.

ps asked designer to do the espignol, the small version used in 1848 with separate single and 3 barrel variants detachable barrels for the barricades and house windows.

For extra info the boat is 180mm long and 50mm wide, currently working on masts furled, already done a bundle of oars.  Sending masters back to designer to do the first of the Mecklenburg line.

Hi

Some of the Danes that I've painted so far, expecting Mecklenburg line figures next these will be followed by a diversion to do a naval crew for the gun yawls (I've had a couple 3D printed), and then back to the grenadier figures, light troops etc.

Just a quick up date

The line infantry for Mecklenburg are finished, designer is currently working on the Guard grenadiers and a naval crew for the gun yawl (boat).  I've converted the Baden line in greatcoat and shako to field cap.  Planned for this year is the Light troops, artillery crew (German guns are ready - 6pdr, 12pdr and 7pdr howitzer) and cavalry in shako 1st.  Then onto Brunswicker's and Oldenburg.

Brunswick artillery crew
Austrian rocket battery crew
Artillery weapons already done for both, next stop Oldenburg and that completes 1848 (pioneers to do).  Next is 1849
More Prussian foot ready shortly.

The Prussians are something else, and those Austrians and Brunswickers too

What a great range.

So, come on....will it be available commercially - several people have asked. If this is a private project fair enough, but it would be nice to know  :D

I too would be interested in the commercial availability or otherwise; as these look spot on for some early VSF thoughts I have been having

Hi
Limited availability for the figures for those interested. 
I spent Sunday at the York show buying terrain, a few hills and lots of hedges, with getting the terrain ready I've just got distracted and decided to add a early steam train to the mix, I've found one on thingiverse a laser cut model of the 'Adler'.  I've had to rescale it to 28mm and the kind staff at foreground have given me the internal dimensions of their railway track so I'm scaling the model to that so should give me a good feature and target for a what if game of the Danes stopping the supplies by land reaching SH,  I'll do the tender and carriages which means I'll get a couple of figures done for the foot plate and a seated SH soldier.
A railway line ran from Hamburg to Kiel in 1850 and the scenario is possible with the Danes blockading the ports.
Hopefully 4 weeks should have something built.

Thanks for the responses really appreciate it still to paint the brunswickers and mecklenburg troops to finish 1848 (a few extra Danish units as well), onwards and upwards, starting 1849 with the Danish army in there new uniform followed by the Bavarians - looking forward to these and finish the train with carriage and flatbed.
