The raising of the Saxon Army 1699-1712

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Oh my, what an impressive army you have there. I would have loved to see these guys in the flesh, thank you for the pics. Do have an up close pic of the King and Marshall?
Thank You! :D

Here are the promised pictures of the King who wears a simple red Uniform, like the 5000 Horsemen he led 4 years through Poland constantly deceiving and eluding the grasp of the Swedish King.

That should be Field Marshall v. Steinau unimpressing as he was...

Image

And here is the King with all his Commanders

Cheers,

Dear Friends,

here is a picture of the assembled Chevaux de Frise I got sculpted and will be soon in mass production for my Saxons:

They may be seen in flesh at Derby as I intend to pick up some from my Sculptor.

Cheers,
Günter
