First of the Austrian Infantry and a photo from Pretzsch

Not much progress on the 22'ers over the past few days. However, managed to finish the first Austrian infantry figure.
The Pretzsch game allowed for some great photographs.
Since the publication of AMG I have built up quite a library of photographs of reasonable quality. I love seeing lines of marching figures, but equally love atmospheric photos prior and post games. At the last count I had 900+ photographs, 200 of which are of Mollwitz. A few AMG members have contacted me directly, asking could I do CD's.....we will see.

The Set so Far

I have now completed the first Prussian set of 9 figures, officer, ensign, drummer, and 6 privates. NCOs will be made soon, but these will be action types for the rear/side of the rank and file (like my 30mm).
At some point in the future the figures in the photograph will be cast to make enough production castings.
Next up, the set of Austrian infantry.

Painted 22mm Austrian Officer

These wee figures nearly paint themselves....they are really easy and a joy to paint.
 
If it was not for the fact I have a huge 30mm collection, I would certainly consider painting SYW in this size.
 
The photos show the 22mm figure rather large, so forgive my painting. On my computer screen the first photo shows the 22mm figure a 100mm and in the third photo 80mm, so not very forgiving. At 6 inches the figure looks OK and could easily pass for a larger scale figure.

More Photos of the 22'ers +

Having taken a few more photos of the 22'ers + a 30mm Prussian NCO I painted yesterday, I thought I would share with Blog followers.

Figure Size Comparison

The photograph shows how the 22'er compares with 28/30mm figures.
 
The figure on the far right, as you view the photograph, is a larger miniature based on the artwork of Bob Marrion. Castings of this figure are currently in the Worldwide Postal System.

A Painted 22'er

I quickly painted a 22mm figure this morning as a Russian infantryman.
 
Easy to paint, more so as they are anatomically very good. In due course I will post a figure size comparison.
