Bavarian Generals

August 9, 2011 7:23 PM - Posted by Robartes - Category: Wet Paint

Some freshly painted Bavarian leadership. First up, Kronprinz Ludwig, commander of the 1st Division in 1809:

GL Kronprinz Ludwig

Next up, GM Von Zandt, commander of the cavalry brigade of 1st division:

GM Von Zandt

And finally, GM Von Rechberg, commander of the 1st Infantry Brigade of said division:

GM Von Rechberg

The figures are Front Rank (Ludwig & Von Zandt) and Foundry (Ludwig’s escort from 1st Chevauxlegers and Von Rechberg). The size difference between these two makes is obvious when one compares the figure of Ludwig with his midget escort :)

Comments on this entry

I use both makes - but never in the same unit, or maybe for a diorama base either mounted or dismounted one maker and the other from the other - if you see what I mean.

I still like my exclusively Foundry ECW units though - somehow they sum up the change in figure styles of thi time and just epitomise the priod. The newer figures, though nicer in some ways are just not quite right. Keeping those back for the 30 years war. Graham
