Generic Command Set

One of the subjects raised on AMG is the overall usefulness of these figures in creating many more of the small armies that fought in the SYW. Having made an early Saxon infantryman which would work well for a few of the German states, I decided this morning to put together for casting a command set of three figures, none of which have collars or lapels.
I have also just started another mounted colonel.
 
The range is coming together quite nicely, and I very much appreciate the encouragement and support from AMG Members.

Mounted Colonel Finished

The first of the mounted colonels in 22mm is now finished. The result is quite favourable. I will now try and make a few more variants for the range.

New 22mm Masters

Managed to complete the Prussian and Russian senior NCO's.
The photograph shows the Austrian and the two mentioned above. The right arm varies in position for each of the three figures.

Senior NCO

I finished this Austrian NCO yesterday. The partisan is a little clumsy but to get it cast I have gone for a thicker copper wire. Providing it can be cast, it will avoid having to see those bent partisans often seen in photographs.
Over the weekend I would like to make two similar figures, one Prussian the other Russian.
Remember this figure is only 22mm.

Saxon Leibgrenadier Garde

Quickly painted a 22'er as a Saxon Leibgrenadier Garde. With the Saxon infantryman already cast, looks like we have a fourth army in the range, besides many figures being suitable for Empire regiments.
These are the most life like miniatures I have ever painted, much better than my 30's.

The Battalion

I am sort of coming to the conclusion that a 30 figure battalion looks about right with the 22'ers.
A regiment would consist of two battalions. Grenadiers are separated and form composite battalions.
 
20 privates
3 officers
2 ensigns
2 drummers
3 nco's
 
The photo shows an Austrian battalion. The hand painted flags are due to arrive in the next few days.
