Better Pioneer Photos. . .

 A company of pioneers on the way to some kind of digging task just off camera.

Wrapping things up here this morning and early afternoon with two additional Minden pioneer photographs before switching off the beholder that is my desktop PC and boxing up the last few things here in Zum Stollenkeller for the load-up tomorrow morning and trip to East Lansing.  These photos, and a few others, were taken, as usual, in my makeshift foamcore lightbox -- the next one, Lightbox Mk II, will be even better --  before I took it apart and stowed my lamps in one box or another.   I'll be offline for the next several days, but enjoy perusing these two pictures of the recently finished two-company unit of generic pioneers who will one day serve in either the Army of Stollen, or the Army of Zichenau, as and when needed.

Another company of pioneers about to fortify a defensive position.  The gabions were a suggestion from Jim 'Der Alte Fritz' Perky (the man behind Minden and Fife & Drum) some months back, and a good one that was too.  These scratch-built bits help add just a bit more variety and visual interest to the set-up.

Can you do a tutorial on how to make a light box? I need one ASAP

The miniatures, with your paintwork and customizations, look great! Excellent photos, too!

Love the figures Stokes. As usual you've done a super job. Your blog is my favourite site, and I try to visit here whenever I can. I enjoy the battles and the photographs, but I wonder if I might ask a favour? Is it possible for you to tell us how many units you've painted since starting your Stollen campaign? It's something that's been nagging at me for some time now. By my calculations, your armies must be pretty large.
Hope your move goes well (though I have a sneaky suspicion that you are actually only looking for a larger wargames room - oh, if only I could find one myself).
Cheers Stokes, and keep up the great work.

Good luck with the move Stokes. It will be worth it, I'm sure!
