A Few More Oldies But Goodies. . .

 Here's a shot from a couple of years ago of various Zichenauer units, which consist of figures by RSM95, Garrison, and Revell plastics along with MiniFig and Holger Erisksson guns.

Among other things this extremely cold day, I've taken 30 minutes to tinker with a few older pictures of my collection in Photoshop Elements 9, cropping, adjusting color cast, and sharpness as well as brightness levels on the fourth photograph below.  Kind of a nice reminder of how things look when deployed en masse on the table, wouldn't you agree?

Here is a bunch of Minden Prussian hussars, which I painted as, more or less, hussars of Lauzun's Legion although the guidon is my own creation.  They are now on multiple bases by the way, which speeds up things immeasurably when playing a game.


Here is battalion of RSM95 Prussian figures, which I painted as Hanseatic infantry.  The flag, which features an eagle and red&white shield on each side, is based on an old flag from the Free and Hanseatic City of Luebeck.


Next, we see a regiment of 30 Holger Erikson dragoons.  Horses were painted with a combination of oil glazes over various Humbrol enamels with the riders and detailing carried out with Citadel and Ral Partha acrylics.  The dark green coats, however, were also done using the last of my Humbrol British Rifle Green, a tin that lasted well over 20 years before finally drying out not too long after I finished these, which are now also on multiple bases.


Here is a slightly different version of the first photograph shown above, featuring a close-up of some Irish Wild Geese with two batteries of artillery in close support.


And finally,  yet another of ol' von Seydlitz and Frederick II, taken with, if memory serves me correctly, a telephoto lens on my Sony DSLR-A100 although I can't swear to it since two years have gone by, and I neglected to write any of this down at the time.  I'm kicking myself now of course.

So many good pictures and figures in your collection. It is hard to decide which ones I like best, but I do like those Holger Erickson dragoons.

Oldies but goodies indeed...

Great stuff - will we be seeing them in action again soon?

With the von Seydlitz photo, you could look at the EXIF details on the original photo file (assuming you still have that of course :-) ) for the details of the camera, lens, exposure etc used when the photo was taken.

They look very fine, Stokes. I like your photography very much.
