A few examples to start out. First, the other side of the 30 Years War reiter. This is actually the companion figure to the other of Gustavus Adolphus getting shot out of the saddle at the Battle of Lutzen. He is part of the Heinricshen set Der 30-jährige Krieg, produced in 1883. These are nominally 40mm, but more precisely they are 35mm.
And a few of the Heinrichsn 45mm Ottoman infantry of 1877. The originals were issued at about this time.
And now just a couple years short of retirement, I've had to put some thought into what I collect and what must be trimmed. As my wife and I will most likely be downsizing our living accomodations considerably, I think it's practical to assume that just about everything will have to go except for the flats. So I'm painting those for now, the figures shown here with no particular project in mind but just to get the juices flowing again. And I promise not to wait 6 months for the next post.
