|Prussian pioneers - Minden Miniature figures and inn made by Herb Gundt|
I wanted to post this picture before retiring for the evening - I will post some commentary about the picture tomorrow. I will have to play around with the photo as it does not apparently enlarge when one clicks on the photo. It was taken on my iPad and the original version is very large and very clear. This copy is small and blurry for some reason. Any helpful hints out there would be appreciated.
I used the Minden Miniatures generic pioneers and painted them as Prussian Pioneers in waistcoats. Presumably the coats have been removed prior to these fellows getting to work on some job. The building is a country inn in Silesia and is modeled after a Knotel drawing. Note the cute little bird house on the pole in the backyard of the inn. The powder wagon is from Berlin Zinnfiguren and is a giant 30mm model. The wagon in the back ground is scratch built by Mr. Ed Phillips.
