TeamMiniatures - Franco-Prussian War 1870-1871 - The Prussians and their Bavarian allies arrived

Manufacturer:   TeamMiniatures

Scale:    1:30 (60mm)

Call me a fool, call me crazy, call me a nerd, call me what you want - today the postman brought me "some" reinforcements for my ToySoldier Collection.

The Prussian and Bavarian infantry of the Franco-Prussian War is completed.

I will have to make a date with a very good psychiatrist.



This is how my showcase looked like this morning ...

... and here is how it looks now.

The Bavarians charging ...

... and the Prussians attacking.

TeamMiniatures - The Franco-PrussianWar 1870-1871

Manufacturer:   TeamMiniatures

Scale:   1:30 (60mm)


As the hobby of collecting ToySoldiers from companies like JohnJenkinsDesigns, King&Country and others is not the cheapest one I decided to concentrate on figures covering German history excluding the GreatWar and WorldWar 2 (for now :) ).
To concentrate on German topics does not mean that I will stop searching for my beloved period of warfare - the FrenchIndianWar.
But I recognized that there are a lot of figures within the ranges of the companies mentioned above concerning German history.

- Franco-Prussian War

- German troops of the American War of Independence
(JohnJenkinsDesign and King&Country)

- Ancient Germans

- Seven Years War
(JohnJenkinsDesign and FirstLegion)

- German troops of Peking

- Teutonic Knights

- Napoleonic wars
(I have not searched for these figures yet, but I am sure that there are some manufacturers offering figures of the German states)

I am also sure that only these topics will take some time to collect them. And also a lot of money.
I have already been able to complete some ranges like

- the Leuthen-range from JohnJenkinsDesign
(I have already published a post on my blog about this range)
- the 3rd German Seabatallion from TeamMiniatures
(will be posted within the next few days)
- the Hessians of the AWI from King&Country

But there is still a long way to go.

Yesterday I received the first figures of my next topic to collect. The Prussians of the Franco-Prussian War.

Always the same trouble - there is too much month left at the end of the money. :)
