New AWI Hessian Sculpts



A couple of weeks ago I received pictures of the greens that Richard Ansell had sculpted for AWI Hessians that will be added to the Fife & Drum figure range. We have Hessian musketeers and grenadiers, both in marching poses and firing line poses. Fusiliers and Jagers will be added in the future.







I will post the pictures of the officers and standard bearers tomorrow.

Undoubtedly, these figures could be used as SYW Prussians as well as for Hessians.

  1. I admire greatly the natural posture of these figures. They look at ease in their skin. Very very nice work from Mr. Ansell.

  2. Lovely sculpts and of natural proportions, rather than chunky and 'heroic'.

    1. Jeez, I just sent them to the caster this week. Give them a little time to make 16 moulds and spin the metal. 😄

    1. The Hessians will be available from Crann Tara Miniatures in the UK for our customers in the UK and the Eurozone.

    1. I always wanted to have a Prussian firing line in the range, so I was able to kill two birds with one stone with these Hessians.

  8. They look great! Nice to see a range specifically for AWI, rather than just repackaging the Minden SYW Prussian Grenadiers;-)

    On a side note, any move to produce scots in trews for AWI?
