In their own words the Perrys announce;

"At last, we have some more Danes for you. The KÝrende (Mounted) Artillery were established in 1808 converting the existing 3 pounders into fast moving mounted artillery. By strengthening the carriages, seats were added to the axles and trail to carry four gunners into action. When in action the two axle seats and foot plates were taken off and laid aside (as seen in the pictures).

DAN 41 KÝrende (Mounted) Artillery firing 3 pdr 1808-14
DAN 42 KÝrende (Mounted) Artillery loading 3 pdr 1808-14
DAN 43 Foot Artillery firing Howitzer in round hats 1803-8
DAN 44 Foot Artillery loading Howitzer in shakos 1808-14
DAN 45 Danish Light Infantry/Jaeger command 1810-14
DAN 46 Danish Light Infantry/Jaegers skirmishing with rifles 1810-14"


Worth seeing on their website as these guns are cleverly put together. Plus there seem to have been earlier additions I missed

So it does in fact take two to Tango.

Speaking of Tango, I have not seen a post from him in a few days.

There is a Mrs Tango and there must be a time when he takes a break and enjoys some time away from the pleasures of a PC monitor and the Internet.

Why do we do it?

Why are we slaves to this social media thing?

We not need Arnie's Cyborg, we are doing it ourselves…..and every reply on a TV interview now starts with a "So.….." (Is that just UK?)

I've also noticed the "so…" phenomenon, in reply to question, and not just on TV either.

I saw this was for apparently linking to pirated material, but no further indication is given. Does anyone know what this is about?

I don't need Danish Artillery…but I wants it! :)

Must agree they are very "different".

The red coat on artillery makes nice change from inevitable blue (or a few in green). The longer coat makes a change but I particularly like some of the poses. The spongeman actually using the wretched thing, accompanied by a chap with a bucket instead of a loader. Hopefully he will then put it down and do something more useful, but again he is a novelty. I did not show the chaps loading howitzer, but again some unusual and welcome posing. Much imagination gone into these

Poor Tango has been in the DH for this before. But with his level of input, he is bound to inadvertently link to pirated material occasionally. I dread to think about our use of what must be copyrighted images in almost every topic.

Garde de Paris12 Jul 2019 4:29 a.m. PST

What "pirated" material can there be in print? I thought our discussions in the past have been about one copying other artists' figures in home-made molds, and the like. Does Tango make figures?

I've also noticed the "so…" phenomenon, in reply to question, and not just on TV either

Back when I used to watch Shark Tank is when I first noticed this. Might make a good variation on "Hi, Bob".

It is creeping into grad student work as well. I have a standard comments document that I use for cut-and-paste common comments, and one of those is "persistent use of the grammar error "So,…".

So, I do so agree with so much of everything said so far.

(Do you all remember when girls would all end every sentence with an interrogation? Like ..oh yes "like" as well…"this bothers me…pause…. WHAYYYYYYY?" )

Even if they lived in Newcastle Upon Tyne, because they saw it on TV shows). It seems to have died out lately here.

So (this is driving me mad is "So", even BBC is doing it). This is only about six months old.

As for Tango. How many of us will scan and post an image from a book, a dodgy on line image of Napoleonic Uniforms, that Pinterest scandalous thing…with not a thought of copyright issues?

I should not even be showing my conversions of Perry figures, even if I make no money from it. Legally, it is their work, my version might be seen as substandard and degrade their skills.

Excellent! Pleny of shoulder arms infantry, artillery and cavalry to recreate the large pitched battles that took place between Denmark/Norway and Sweden.

@Abel
For those who enjoy Sharp Practice and brigade sized actions where company and battalion maneuver is decisive, those battles along the NOR/SWE border in 1808 are great;)
For corps sized actions, the actions by the Danish Auxiliary Corps in 1813 are interesting.

Aebel9017 Jul 2019 3:13 a.m. PST

Personally I lean more towards 1814, when Colonel Krebs was on fire and the army had finally adopted proper headgear:)

But, if ski troops are added for '08 and firing/skirmish poses for line infantry for both phases of the conflict it would be dangerous for my budget.
