The raising of the Royal Saxon Army 1869 - 1871

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!

Dear Friends,

There has been some other stuff going on that kept me from posting on this thread here but after all I managed to order new Miniatures from Steve Barber and, after receiving them on Friday, I glued them together within an hour and placed them on my Desk. Those Miniatures are the Krupp C61/64 4pdr or 8cm Guns and Crews. Out of financial reasons we have currently only have made a firing Gun Crew but it will be supplemented with a loading/moving Gun crew as well in the near future. I ordered 2 Batteries to start with.

WIP so more pictures to follow.

Cheers,

After those problems with Photobucket and the change to Flickr I have started to replace those "Placeholders" with the pictures again. Some replacements are pure guessing :roll:

Today is August 18th, 2021.
A good day to pick up where I, reluctantly, left this Thread (and with it all my Hopes ever to be able to continue).

Today is the 151 Anniversary of the Battle of St.Privat la Montagne/Gravelotte. The most glorious Day for the Royal Saxon Army. Their Contribution to the Battle 'snatched a Victory from the Jaws of Defeat'.
Without the XII Royal Saxon Army Corps the Prussian Guard Corps would have died and suffered in Vain while trying to reach the Defensive Lines of Marechal Canrobert's VI. French Corps.
