Ziethen Personality Figure

Minden Personality Figure of von Ziethen (click picture to enlarge the view)

Here is a picture of one of the new Minden SYW personality figures that was added to the range recently, as a result of one of our Kickstarter campaigns. One of the subscribers pledged at a level that allowed him to choose to have any figure of his choice to be sculpted and added to the range. In this particular case, the choice was to sculpt a very heroic looking von Ziethen personality figure. Our new von Browne, Fermor and Prinz Moritz personality figures were also generated from the Kickstarter program.

As you can see from the pictures, there are a number of inspirations for the Minden Ziethen personality figure, which comes with its own special rearing horse that is unique to this model.

The figure is a joy to paint and makes an attractive addition to your Minden Prussian cavalry contingent. The stock code number is "PER-011" and the figure is priced at $8.00 for the rider and horse, plus applicable shipping

  1. Jim,
    A wonderful figure, albeit the wrong nation. He would look good as Nadasty though.

  2. I sincerely hope that when I paint up my figure, it looks 1/4 as good as yours does. Well done, my friend. Tom

  3. Will you be bringing the personality figures to th SYWA Con?

  4. Now there is a fellow who knows how to cut a dash.

  5. That's some Prussian swagger there. Fantastic paint job and fantastic miniature :)

  6. Very nice indeed , and thank you for the additional fine illustrations
