Medics - finished

I'm very happy to present you with Niels Rullkoetters and Michael Bartlings latest Creation - the prussian ambulance!

There were only 14 build after the plans were purchased from England in 179something.
Sources state that there were only 3 left after Leipzig, so there's even a small possibility that 1 of them was still around at Ligny/Placenoit.
The sides and roof were build of oilskin canvas that was wrapped around a metal frame.
The roof could be removed in the summer. Painting and words on the side come from Knoetels plate that initially sparked that "preussische Chirurgie" project of mine.

On a side-note: I'll attend Salute this year, and I still have 3 packs from the 2nd and definitley last issue of the doctor-miniatures left. Please drop me a mail to kawe.weissi-zadeh@hotmail(dot)com if you're there and interested!





Some detail of the lovely calpe artillery on the march:

  1. This is just splendid looking and the way you've put it with these troops and on the cobbled stone really adds to the overall effect.

    Enjoy yourself at Salute!!

    You still haven't let on what 18mm figures you picked up recently? AB Prussians?

    1. I do have quite a lot of older 15mm and a neat bunch of newer 18mm miniatures lying around. It's just the variety that's missing for me. I keep you updated on that topic.
