First Wave of Saxons

A few days ago the first Saxons arrived and I'm pleased as a proud owner of a Saxon Granny can be.

Paul did a fabulous job and I was surprised when I was holding them beside my Calpe Saxons as they
seem to be a very good match. 

All Westfalia

Few Calpe mixed in (see black dot)

Note the biggest difference - calpes tend to lean forward and have the right boot forward while Westfalias are pretty straight and have the left boot in front. Also Calpe has very slightly bigger bayonets and deepwe cloth-folds. 

Next is the Grenadiers!


  1. I like them an awful lot! Thank you....

    1. Same here! And honestly - it's a good thing Calpe seems to fire up his own production after all.
