(Commercial) Eureka Miniatures release 28mm Piedmontese
« on: July 15, 2021, 04:07:47 AM »
Piedmont, or the Kingdom of Savoy, was a monarchy in Northern Italy stuck between the great powers of France on one side and Austria on the other. Diplomatically aligned with France, they had expected their next war to be against Austria across the open plains of Northern Italy and thus spent vast sums of money buying state-of-the-art “semi-automatic” cannons and horses to raise good quality cavalry regiments.

These figures would be appropriate for the battles of the First Coalition in Italy from 1792 to 1796, including Napoleon’s famous Italian Campaign. The Piedmontese mostly fought a defensive war, inflicting defeat on the French at the Battle of Saorgio and generally blunting the French offensive into Northern Italy.

Got to get me one of the officer smoking the pipe.  Next to a gun.  And lots of black powder.

Clearly a bad-arse who thinks Health & Safety is for wimps.  Or cavalrymen.

Or is just casually conscious of the fact that there’s another bloke with a lit slow match whose job it is to fire the thing.

As the Chats would have it….’ I’m on smoko, so leave me alone…’  ;)

Nice figures btw.
