New Westfalia releases
« on: March 19, 2013, 03:13:48 AM »
These miniatures were sitting on the shelf for quite a while but will now see day-light.

Cantiniere insipired by a flat from the 30's:

The flat:


We too have a mean huge Prussian Train-soldier that will not ride but walk beside our horses. We will add him to the barrel-cart and the ambulance.

Love the cantiniere - will she be available seperately or just as part of a set?

Thank you for the kind feedback. I was pondering with adding more miniatures. It looks like we\re going to do a set with all female chars sich as Eleonore Prochaska, A blokeish little spanish nun with a little blokish gun andpossibly a few more.

Thanks again :--)

Hi Kawe,

as I already said on your blog: Some really nice new miniatures!
I'm looking forward to see them available. Especially for those Prussian train soldiers I've git some conversion ideas...

By the way:
I love this relaxed international forum.  ;)
I remember the posts in another (German...) forum where the discussion displaced to the incorrect bearing of the loading cantiniere...  ::)
For me the elegancy and speciality of the figure itself stands out and that's whay I like it. Correct handling of the musket or not...
 :)

Cheers
Stefan

 lol Wrong musket drill. Yeah I bet she got loads of training before she had to pick up the musket in a last ditch self defence.

Danke Stefan,

You know - if one of these ultra serious reenactment guys finds a musket-drill issue with our Cantiniere(!), then I smile and nod and try to think of sausages and beer.

All the more serious people I know found her agreeable and very much in the spirit of the old set of flats which was our design-aim.

In America they call them Farbies, as in "Far be it for me to tell you you've got it wrong, but ......."  :D

These are the hard-core who don't wear shoes, catch dysentry and have lice to get that authentic ACW feel.......  :'(

I am impressed by your wares, I will be getting the Prussians to add to my Perrys.  o_o

Haha - We have them too. And they start talking where your quoted sentence ends.

That said - I neither mind people challenging our work nor do I mind some self-righteous Troll once
in a while.

Keeps me young so to say.  ;)
