28mm Franco-Prussian project completed...

After three and a half years, I'm now done with my 28mm Franco-Prussian armies for Chassepot and Needlegun.  I have the following "divisions" for my armies.  Here we go:

28mm French Army:

1st French Corps, 2nd Division:
1st French Corps, 2nd Division command
1st French infantry brigade
2nd French infantry brigade
2 French batteries of 4 pdr guns
1 French Mitraileuse battery

French Cavalry Brigade:
8th French Cuirassier Regiment
2nd French Chassuers d'Afrique Regiment

28mm German Army:

1st Bavarian Infantry Division:
1 Bavarian Infantry Brigade
1 Bavarian battery of 4 pdr Krupp guns
1st Bavarian Jager battalion

1st Prussian Infantry Division:
1st Prussian Infantry Division Command
1st Prussian Infantry Brigade
1 Prussian battery of 4 pdr Krupp guns
1 Prussian battery of Krupp siege mortars

Prussian Divisional Cavalry:
Magdeburg Cuirassier Regt. No. 7

These are the units for my 28mm FPW armies.  Each army weighs about 40 lbs.  They are not easy to move.  I wish I had a table in my basement to run games.  The last time I took this to a convention, my back nearly died going up and down steps.  But all the painting is done.  I can celebrate and move on to other projects...


  1. So - do you have pictures (with the bases flocked)? Lets 's see them!
