The brits took over!

Also - here's the first finished miniature-art-work for our "Retreat from Moscow" micro-range that we hope to start releasing before Christmas.

Auf wiedersehen!

my first napoleonic painting pt2.

PT2. Dismounted polish guard Lancier.

Things that happen while planning new Miniatures for Westfalia... Figure number 1 is almost done.  I might add some sprinkles of dirt to rough up his appearance. Also really not sure on the uniform of this gent, but the retreat from Russia allows for a lot of fantasy I believe.

More to come!

Alles neu macht der Mai

 Hello there,

There's a couple of new things that I wanted to share for a long time and now I found the time to actually post them.

1. The French ammo caisson is ready. It's a thing of pure historical accuracy made of 12 separate parts.  Niels and Michael were really out-doing them-self and we're happy to offer an asset that is aimed at serious collectors and Napoleonic connoisseurs alike.

Now available in our shop in the usual Griffin Quality:

2. The Prussian ambulance Peter at calpe is a very busy man, but I'm sure he'll release a model that's tweaked towards the needs of his range sometime soon. The cart itself is ready (and beautiful) but Peter wants to add up suitable horses and a Trainsoldier. I however have no clue on when that might be the case. 

Because of this and since we accepted pre-orders for that piece 2 months ago we decided to make a small release with Westfalias usual channel of production available to finally serve the costumers that were pre-ordering. This model won't be as perfect a match for Calpe as the one Peter will be releasing. It will consist more parts, and it'll come without horses nor Train-soldiers.
At least that's what I thought until last week.
Dirk Tietten, known as former member of the incredible Croebern-team, only recently decided to join forces with Westfalia.  Prussian-train will be just one off the many new projects we're planning to work on. On the list you'll find French Train, Saxons, Russians, Spaniards and hopefully many more related carts.

3. Kielmannsegger The ever so busy Mr. Hicks is fighting greater demons than Westfalia atm but we gladly wait for his return to finish this set! I have a feeling that we'll see a serious update within next week.

Until the next Post!
