Schaumberg-Lippe ..

 I'm adding some extra trrops to the Duchy of Fenwick army, these will be based on Hanoverian Freikorps units.  I've finished part of the Schaumberg-Lippe contingent

The Carabiniers (my own Kurassier figures, with new head gear)

Jager company (my own castings, with officer from Redoubt)
Artillery (Irregular Miniatures austrian gun & crew, heads swapped with some spares)
Currently working on the infantry battalion.

Also in the pipeline Luckners Hussars and Scheither's freikorp. Once these are finished I have a small mini-campaign planned with Monrovia facing off against Fenwick.

Extending my 28mm Home-Cast range of figures ....

 Something I've been working on for the couple of weeks are some extra masters to extend my home-cast range of 28mm figures.

The initial set comprised a marching musketeer, marching Prussian style grenadier , dragoon and heavy cavalry horse...

These were used to make figures for my Monrovian army refurbishment and to provide some extra units for my Duchy of Fenwick army.

The initial sets provided some basic figures that can be used as starting points to make new ones.  I eventually chose to go with some more generic style figures that I could think of using in the coming year. 

The new figure masters.... 

1) kurassier, draught horse,  mounted officer
2) officer, drummer, standard bearer, Austrian style grenadier
3) hussar and suitable horse variant, plus an advancing jager
I've just started working on making the moulds. Perhaps first trial castings in a few days times.

I plan to use the new figures to raise some Freikorps additions to my 28mm armies.

A couple more buildings ....

I've added a couple more buildings to my scenic stock. These are card buildings made by Keranova, from their Medieval Town range. The parts slot together and a number of small tabs protrude from the walls and roofs; I removed the tabs, filled in any gaps and painted the detail back in - for the roofs I covered them in some tile effect paper sheet.

I think thats all for new buildings for downtown Wittenberg for a while ...😀
