Steve Barber has recently completed some miniature conversion work for the above period.

A Polish Legion Officer and NCO plus a Hungarian Grenadier in Habsburg service:

Thanks for looking.

Thanks Mark for your kind words.

There will be a Roman Catholic Priest added to the range in time. This has been commissioned.

Best regards,

Its lovely to see more interest occurring for this period whatever your take up is in scale or miniatures used.

For folks who have an interest in collecting miniatures for the period in 28 mm for example, I just wanted to give you a heads-up on where Steve Barber Models is going with the range that I've continued to commissioned over this period of time and will continue to do so unless a change of situation presents itself that I can't anymore. Just an overview of where I'm aiming towards at the moment.

Steve has two cavalry on the books to do. One a Honved trooper from the 13th regiment (hunyadi county) and the other a hussar (old regiments) in pelisse. Both will be attacking pose. Drummers to fill-out where needed. Some additional line officers for both Honved and National Guard plus a staff stand vignette (some minor work on two existing miniatures and one new miniature). A couple of characters figures and two Austrian miniatures one a regular infantryman advancing musket 45 degrees and the other a Croat advancing and musket at 45 degrees..

For the future, I like to push ahead with a couple of Viennese Officers, of which, one will be a standard bearer. Three separate Viennese heads to use on the German Legion miniatures available. This represents the later legion – they should look lovely in blue uniform.

Italian Legion, two generals, a few more riflemen, four more cavalry troopers (Honved, National Guard, Kress and Polish cavalry). Three Honved artillerymen deploying 7lb howitzer. Finally, some National Guard with scythe and some additional characters to finish off. Engineers/Pioneers will not be missed either.

All of the above takes time and I appreciate all the efforts Steve does. There is no time-line for completing the range.

Just to be clear, these are on my wish list for the above that is not already commissioned by me and finance by me for this range. Anyone else can certainly join in if they wish and commission anything they like. I thank you in advance if you do take up with Steve commissioning some miniatures as others have done from the start to kick off the range. My deepest regards to both Geoff and Ed M for doing so.

Thank you for your time.

Best regards,

Great figures. Glad you're doing them.

Thank you Bill. I have really enjoyed reading your MWAN articles.

Just to say that five new codes for the above have been released.

Thank you.
