Austrian Army Additions

Minden Miniatures SYW Austrian grenadiers form two converged battalions, supported by the newly raised Regiment Botta (in the third rank). Painted by Der Alte Fritz. Click pix to enlarge.

The Austrian Minister of Defense has been busy recruiting new forces for Marie Therese's army. They expect to clash at the annual Seven Years War Association Convention in South Bend, Indiana on March 21 - 23, 2011.

You can find out more information about this year's convention at the following link for the Yahoo group:

The Austrian artillery park has also increased in size, as shown below. Minden Austrians artillery crew figures fire cannon provided by Berliner Zinnfiguren.

These are lovely,
There is something really appealing to me about the Minden SYW figures. Particulary like the Artillery. Very inspiring!
Thanks for posting

Very nice - what basing frontage are you using btw - 20mm?

Der Alte Fritz said...

The basing frontage is 20mm per figure. I use a 60mm x 40mm wooden base for my infantry and 2" square stand for 2 cavalry figures.

The Mindens are indeed lovely figures (particularly as painted by Der Alte Fritz) . . . and can easily be used on the same table top with RSM95s . . . both have an elegance that makes some of the other figure lines look like oversized dwarves.
