These are sitting at number 3 in our Top 10 requests, so the sculptor managed to squeeze them in before he heads off onto some ECW and WWI additions for us.  We've got 5 chaps with instruments and the drum major on the left hand side.  To the right we've got our drummer and the small pieces will be a dog-drawn bass drum, which will come complete with a dog of course!  We'll be getting these all moulded up and released quite quickly.



 Cool

Very nice Leon.

Speaking of 10mm dogs and further WW 1 releases...any chance of some Belgian mg dogcarts?

Those look great Leon!  I would guess it's probably too late to throw in a guy with a "jingling Johnny" (aka a Turkish Crescent)?

Excellent, I will need at least two packs. With suitable modifications they will raise the spirits of my US and CS forces most rousingly!

Lovely band - just what the Austrians need for sounding the retreat at Magenta & Solferino

before he heads off onto some ECW and WWI additions for us

What are the ECW additions?

Open-handed pikemen please

I'll await the release of these chaps before ordering. Brilliant stuff- its these little extras that make 10mm so appealing.  Thumbs up

Possibly, it's something we've been asked for a few times so we'll see if we can fit those in somewhere.

It would be unfortunately, and the costs of another figure wouldn't really be viable.  With the number of sculpts involved, we'll need to shift well over 100 of them to recoup the costs already, but it's nice to have these little vignette style pieces.

Afraid not on those, we had a discussion in another thread somewhere about those and it's not really something we're looking to do any time soon.  The costs involved, needing to keep both open/closed options available, plus the domino effect into other ranges, etc. all make it a bumpy road to go down.

Great news, I'll get a band for each brigade. Don't recall ever seeing Austrian musicians of this period with the jingling jonnie.

Don't buy your daughters a pony, buy them heroin instead, its cheaper and ultimately less addictive.

He's the St Bernard that will pull the drum.

I remember that it existed, to evade the question a bit.

I don't have a specific reference just that they were found among many European military bands of the period. The Turkish influence made me thing the Austrians might have them. Saw one a few years back with a bundeswehr band and was suitable impressed. It would just be fun to have them.
