Hello, all,

Just finished a small project of converting some figures
to represent Hungarian/Honved mounted commanders.
Below is a sample: Lt Gen Artur Georgei

Lovely job. Perfect for Gorgei at the 2nd Battle of Komarom!

"He took off his white-feathered hat and waved it to warn Poeltenberg of the danger. The Galician Polish lancers also noticed the Hungarian commander, and shouted "Tilko tego czerwonego" [just get the one in red!] to one another and to their horse artillery next to them. Görgei took a terrible blow to the head and realized he was wounded."

(My translation of an excerpt from Hermann's "Nagy csatai …")

Thanks, all.


Chris, I wasn't aware that you had a BBB blog. Just added it to my list of blogs.

Tried to drop a comment there, but it prompted me for Google Plus credentials, which I don't have. So I'll mention it here: Nafziger has a good list of OOBs for the Hungarian Uprising.

Best,
Ed M

Hi Ed,

Thanks for visiting the blog, glad you liked it enough to list it; it keeps me amused.

There's certainly lots of good info in Nafziger but also some bad; quite a few typos, but more importantly I believe the list for at least one of the major battles is very substantially wrong, listing commanders and units who weren't there and omitting others who were.
