Which miniatures for the period 1733 - 1748 ?

Post by Belg » Mon Jun 16, 2014 8:56 am

Hello,
someone could advise me as to which miniatures are most suitable to represent the armies of the following wars:

- War of the Polish Succession - 1733 - 1738
- War of the Austrian Succession - 1740 - 1748

Are better those of the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1714), or those of the Seven Years' War (1756-1763), as in the Front Rank catalog (and some other company) there are only these?
Thanks

Also Crann Tara has '45 figures that will work for French and British infantry on the Continent. http://cranntaraminiatures.blogspot.com. I imagine that they will produce British dragoons and maybe some French cavalry figures that could be used, as well. Minden's SYW Prussian and Austrian ranges, and some of its SYW French, will work for the WAS. Minden is going to produce de Saxe in a coach for Fontenoy and Voluntiers de Saxe. Both these ranges are sculpted by Richard Ansell. So they are interchangeable and go well with Eureka's WAS Dutch and SYW Saxons, which also work for the WAS. I think that Minden's SYW Hanoverians might work for the WAS, since they are sculpted in a early uniform.

Hey, I might have talked myself into something!
