SA stands for Saxon Artillery

Yet another personal anniversary of von Peter himself has recently passed. Tradition dictates that in preparation for such an event contact should be made with Calpe Miniatures to see if there is an urgent need to organise the delivery of critical military supplies to coincide with said anniversary. Contact was duly made and yes there was great need to arrange for the delivery of critical military supplies. The Saxon foot artillery figures have started rolling off the production line.

At the time of contact von Peter himself was able to select an order from …

  • four packs of gunners in covered shakos
  • four packs of gunners in uncovered shakos
  • an alternate heads pack with two gunners wearing fatigue caps, one bareheaded and another with a bandaged head.

von Peter himself arranged for the delivery of two packs each from the covered and uncovered shako packs – exactly which ones were left to Calpe’s discretion – as well as the alternate heads pack.

It is strongly suspected that each pack is constructed in such way that the figures work together as a coherent gun team hard at their work. The current thought is to use them as such with the exception of the alternate heads pack who will get mixed in to the other sets in a random saucey 😲 manner. The arrival of officer pack(s?) may alter this or some bases may just get the addition of an officer. Time will tell.

And now for some pictures but first the usual caveats …

  • The figures are presented as they arrived excepting that the larger runners inherent in the casting progress have been removed with a craft knife and the fingers of von Peter himself. The same fingers straightened any bent ram rods etc
  • The figures have been cunningly rearranged between the front and back photographs so that the figures in the matching front and back photographs match left to right. Ahh … that is to say for example that the figure second on the left is the same figure in the front and back photos. If this has not been adequately explained then don’t worry about it as it probably doesn’t matter. Just be aware that von Peter himself went that extra step to the benefit of The dear reader
  • von Peter himself has quickly ‘washed’ the figures with ‘Shader Black’ from Coat d’arms to bring out the details a little
  • While marvelling at the figures please remember that they are presented in larger than life size … depending on The dear readers device of course!
  • As yet von Peter himself does not have any pack descriptors … so none are provided! The pack code identifier is as written on the bag containing the figures
  • ‘Click’ the photos for a larger and clearer image.

SA8

 

SA11

 

SA13

 

SA14 – artillerymen with head variants. Two in fatigue cap, one bareheaded and one with a bandaged head.

That there are more packs to come is hinted at by the coding of the alternate heads pack as SA14. So another typical Calpe job carpet bombing the covered the topic with many options to use. Excellent! Limbers and caissons are anticipated and perhaps some marching gunners – perhaps even including a musician – as provided for in the Prussian foot & horse artillery ranges.

It is strongly suspected that Calpe Towers will not be promoting the range until more / all of the planned packs are available.

 

Above: Saxon artillery during a hard day at the office. von Peter himself suspects the action is purportedly from The Battle of Grossbeeren – 20th August, 1813

 

Of course Calpe Miniatures have had a variety of Saxon cannon available for quite some time now. von Peter himself has had some in storage for just such an occasion!  😃

A personal anniversary celebratory book

Another prize from the personal anniversary came in the form of a book – The Saxon Army 1810-1813. This book came out in German several years ago but has since become available in English which is much more useful to any poor ignorant soul lacking in German.

The official blurb states …

This book presents this “new” Saxon Army with numerous contemporary illustrations, with plates by Patrice Courcelle and Edmund Wagner as well as graphic tables of uniforms of all the regiments by Peter Bunde. A description of the war experiences rounds out the presentation and thus the volume gives the reader a good, thorough introduction to the organization, uniforms and history of the Saxon Army of 1810-1813.

Format: Softback 72 pages with 51 colour illustrations, including three maps and 14 full-page pictures with uniforms.

The authors are Peter Bunde, Markus Gärtner and Markus Stein. Whatever else Peter Bunde may have contributed to the book parts of his various Brigade uniform plates on the Saxons are reproduced in the book … though not always identically. The Foot artillery uniforms on page 64 of the book show a bluer grey than on the uniform plate number 188, Saxon Foot Artillery Regiment 1810-1813. This may be  for any number of reasons – a deliberate change based on further research or an error in colour registration with either the book or the plate. Anyway the main takeaway here is that the book reproduces some of the details from the plates but no where near all.

The initial verdict on the book is a 5 star “hell yeah!” rating!  😊

 

Enough.

Until we meet again …

Snippets #8

Oh – von Peter himself had such plans for this post. A completed Saxon battalion or perhaps at a stretch even some Polish troops. But such day dream plannings have all come to nought. So we’ll just have to go with what we have. On with it then …

New History Bookman E-Book

The History Book Man has been hard at work again and The Army of Hannover and The King’s German Legion 1793-1815 has now joined the ranks of available E-Books for the princely sum of £4.50. Outrageous value for money!  😃

The associated blurb goes something along the lines of …

THE ARMY OF HANOVER & THE KING’S GERMAN LEGION 1793-1815

Originally published in 1984, as The Troops of Hanover, Brunswick and the K.G.L 1807-1815 and combined a number of other small booklets and pamphlets from earlier years. The volume had only a very brief run, the single printed edition going out of print very quickly and has only recently been revised, expanded to include the era of the French Revolutionary Wars, and brought up to date with a wealth of new material which it was not possible to include in the original paperback edition. This new edition produced as an e-book, has been totally revised and it is now illustrated with a new set of colour artwork by the author plus many illustrations which are drawn from the works of established or contemporary artists.

Plastic 28mm SYW French … perhaps

The Seven Years War in Europe is a favoured period of von Peter himselfEbor Miniatures have an interesting kick starter – ebor miniatures 28mm Seven Years War French Infantry. The Kickstarter blurb goes something like …

The aim of this project is to manufacture a box of high quality 28mm hard plastic miniatures for the French Infantry of the seven years war.

The box will contain 30 marching musketeer figures in two slightly different poses, two officers, two officer ensigns a drummer and NCO.

It will also contain heads for grenadiers in bearskin bonnets and Tricorn’s with moustached faces to create marching Grenadier figures.

To achieve this I have employed a world class designer in Matt Bickley who has worked for numerous companies to create top quality plastic miniatures over many years.

Also I have agreed with the world leading plastic miniatures manufacturer Renedra that they will manufacture the kit.

The expertise of both Renedra and Matt are second to none and it was their agreement to help me create this kit that convinced me to go ahead with this project..

In an ideal world I would have the resources to create this kit using my own finance but as a one man company I don’t have the resources so I decided to try and finance the kit through Kickstarter.

There are four pictures available of a green …

von Peter himself is not a follower of Kickstarter but a quick review reveals that the prospects for this project are sadly not looking that flash. The Kickstarter looks like it commenced around the 15 May 2018. The goal is £40,000. As of 28 May 2018 – in New Zealand – £1,895 had been pledged with the closing date being the 14 June 2018. There’s still a lot of money to raise and at the current rate … … … Lets just say a sudden rush of investment appears to be required. A shame.

 

vonpeterhimself.com news

A good part of the reason that there is no completed Saxon battalion to reveal in this post is that von Peter himself has been seduced enjoying updating his vonpeterhimself.com website. Partly this has been motivated by the realisation that the remorseless advance of technology may soon make access to the source of the original von Peter himself combined website & blog difficult at the very least. If any articles are to be resuscitated and recycled then the resuscitating and recycling had better get a move on. And partly von Peter himself has enjoyed tinkering with the website. Of course it wont last. von Peter himself will make use of the spurt of enthusiasm and enjoyment while it lasts.

Recent additions have included a Napoleonic battle memoire – the Battle of Biburg – that was played way WAY back in August 2007. Ah – there’s nothing quite like looking back at games through the rose tinted spectacles that memories provide. The Military Obstacles area has been formally opened with a couple of entries … that may yet be amalgamated into one. And a few more links have been added.

Also profuse thanks are due to Burkhard of dhc wargames blog for basically allowing the pirating of his blog post that informs the reader of the changes that have been wrought on the understanding of Napoleonic Russian infantry uniforms … even if it does raise questions on how the Napoleonic Russian infantry of von Peter himself have been pigmented! This information can be found as a link on the Napoleonic Russian page … which is accessed from the Army Inspections page. Or you could just click on Revisions to Vislovatov’s Russian Infantry Uniforms and go straight there.

Blue Bavarians for Butchery in Bonaparte’s Bloody Battles

Who doesn’t like a little bit of alliteration in a title?

More Bavarians to the front

The final fighting Bavarian unit as per the original plan has made its way to the front and is available for the mayhem that generally ensues up there. The original plan was to recreate Generalmajor Beckers brigade of Generallieutenant Raglovich’s 29th (Bavarian) Division circa 1813 plus a few supporting units. This would have provided five battalions, an artillery battery and a cavalry regiment. These are now all present and ready for action.

Above: the 2nd battalion of the 8th Herzog Pius Infantry Regiment

Four more casualty markers also accompanied the new battalion to the front though only one is specific to that battalion. Those cunning Bavarians have thought of everything!

Thanks to Nigel Fun-nell for painting these chaps and all the other Bavarians. Horses, choreography and basing by von Peter himself. Flags from GMB Designs.

This is probably not the end of the Bavarians however. A few years back The son & heir professed an interest in the Bavarians so several units were purchased. The 2/7th Infantry Regiment was painted – all pretty in their pink facings – and are counted in the available Bavarian order of battle at Neu Schloss von Peter. But there it stopped. The remainder of those purchased Bavarians are lying around in the unpigmented figure pile. To avoid wastage they will probably get pigmented one day so the Bavarian order of battle will likely grow. But first there are some Poles that need some attention! 😃

 

Salute 2018

Yet another Salute has come and gone. Once upon a time von Peter himself would have been referring The dear readers to sites displaying photos of the event but the advancing march of technology means that there are ever more videos of the event to be viewed. Some are linked below if The dear reader has the inclination … and time.

What a Tanker! found in the letter box

How in the world did that happen?!  😇  von Peter himself is hearing good things about these rules from TooFatLardies.

There’s a slight shortage of tanks at Neu Schloss von Peter. In 28mm there are three T34/75s and a KV-1 all ready to game. In 20mm there is a German Stug. IV early version and a Russian SU-85M in a ready to game condition. There are also 3 T34/75s  kits still resting in their boxes.

One option is to get hold of some 28mm German armour. But then von Peter himself sees his long term WWII gaming being in 20mm. Then again there is always the option of a more skirmish level of gaming in 28mm. Decisions decisions.

Of course none of this prevents trials with the game. Maybe those 28mm Russian tanks could take on some of The son & heirs 40k armour!!  😲

Above: A historic view of the available 28mm Russian armour as constructed and pigmented by Greater Queeg

The Lardies have produced an introductory video over in YouTube –  What a Tanker – An Introduction – for the curious …

The Lardies run through a small game of What a Tanker, showing off various aspects of how the rules work. Big Rich has a Stug III and a Panzer IV, whereas Fat Nick has gone unusually lightweight with a Stuart and an M10 Tank Destroyer.

There is also an independent review over on the Skirmish Wargaming site.

And perhaps the clincher – Sparker over in Oz seems to think the game is a little alright. See his What a Tanker! – Down Under… post.  😊

 

BBC sound effects

Should you need some sound effects the BBC have a deal for you at their BBC Sound Effects site. At the time of typing their were 167,016 effects available and some are even of a military bent.

 

Now that’s what I’m talking about!

And to finish with a visual treat. OSHIRO modelterrain make terrain. Surprise!

We produce a large range of Japanese wargaming tarrain as well as expanding ranges incuding; Chinese, Boxer Rebillion, Victorian, Sci-Fi and near future.

Perhaps as a commission they have produced what is a second town creation for the 1809 Napoleonic Aspern Essling campaign. The two photos below have been “borrowed” from OSHIRO modelterrain and show this second model. Stunning covers it. This is the sort of model that makes von Peter himself ache with want!  😃

To see more pictures of this second model and also of the first click here for the relevant post in the Lead Adventure Forum.

There may be a third model. Here’s hoping and that pictures of it will be available in due course.

Enough.

From the darkness he came

It’s Easter 2018. Not only does that mean a couple of extra days off work but it also brings a new post. Hurrah!! Oh – Easter is also a significant event in the Christian calendar. 😇 Onwards …

 

The son & heir turns to the dark side

Konrad Curze is/was the primarch of the Night Lords Space Marine Legion. He plied his trade up to and including the Horus Heresy. So 30K not 40K in the ever expanding Games Workshop science fiction lexicon. And The son & heir has developed what must surely be an unhealthy interest in Konrad and his legion. Fortunately for The son & heir this disturbing fixation was not the well hidden secret it perhaps should have been and some of his friends banded together to procure the Forge World resin kit of Konrad Curze Primarch of the Night Lords as a birthday gift. I hope there were a quite a few friends as the model currently shows as available for £60!

The Christmas break saw some assembly and pigmentation to create the figure shown below. There are other “bits” that came with the kit. What will happen to those is unknown to your correspondent.

Konrad is shown below in a battle damaged science fiction building as built from a modular kit by The son & heir. The idea was to set a science fiction type scene / ambiance for you The dear reader. So please do not think too deeply about the incongruence of Mr Curze’s base and the building he is in!  😃

As usual around here the photography does not do the pigment application justice. Please click the images for a larger and clearer view.

 

Russia against Napoleon – Military History Night, Nov 12, 2015 with Dr. Dominic Lieven

Dominic Lieven is the author of the book “Russian Against Napoleon” and if you haven’t read it you really should. It may very well make The dear reader reconsider some of the stereotypes that we all grew up with.

As a teaser to the book you can listen to – and watch – a lecture by Dominic on some aspects of the conflict …

Distinguished Russian historian Dr Dominic Lieven of Cambridge University addressed Military History Night on the less-explored aspects of Russia’s response to Napoleon’s invasion in 1812, and the victories in Europe of the following years.

PS. the preliminary burble concludes and the real show starts after about 30 seconds.

 

New Litko website and sale

von Peter himself likes to think that once based his figures will stay based.* Time will tell whether this will remain a truth or whether a series of rebasing exercises await in the future. The current mantra is that if the rules require rebasing then good bye rules. But such a parting of the ways has not yet come to pass as reasonable gamers can normally sort any issues out.

 * there is a currently dormant project to rebase a purchased English Civil War Covenanter army but that doesn’t count!! The rebasing is to move the army from old style WRG basing to element basing.  😇

Anyways because the figures are theoretically based for life von Peter himself likes to use plywood bases from Litko. Not the cheapest option but worth the peace of mind for this author. Of course Litko manufacture a lot more then just plywood bases now.

And why bring this up? Because Litko have a new redesigned website located at their old address https://litko.net. What’s more they have a 10% off an order deal going …

Use the discount code WELCOME at checkout for 10% off your order. Use it as many times as you like before April 30th, 2018. After April 30th you’ll get another treat in your inbox… another discount code to use on a future order!

 

What a Tanker!

The gentlemen over at TooFatLardies are scheduled to release their latest ruleset “What a Tanker!” on the 9th April 2018. These are rules for WWII tank vs. tank combat … no artillery, infantry or aircraft to mess things up! Apparently they provide for a fairly quick fire game. Each participant controls one to perhaps three tanks with the rules tending to the beer and pretzels end of the scale. Besides one off games there is a quasi campaign system with surviving crews gaining benefits / skills. Preorders can garner savings so if The dear reader is interested get in quick to save some of your hard earned cash!  💰

 

That’s all for the moment. If all goes according to plan the next post will flaunt some images featuring cornflower / medium blue.

Enough.

Perry news to the left … Perry news to the right

Yet another quickie. Perhaps the old quickie is the new normal? Getting sidetracked now … but … von Peter himself deplores what appears to be the endless dumbing down of ‘things’ in the world. Be it documentaries on the television or – Gawd forbid – wargames rules. M-u-s-t   s-u-p-p-r-e-s-s   a-n   i-m-p-e-n-d-i-n-g   r-a-n-t-!   M-u-t-t-e-r   m-u-t-t-e-r   m-u-t-t-e-r!!

PRICE RISE IN APRIL
This is a prior warning that we’ll be increasing the metal codes by 50p on April 2nd (we didn’t want to make it April 1st as customers might think it was a joke!). So if your thinking of buying get those orders in pronto to save some money!

Plastic Chasseur a Cheval from Perry Miniatures

You know you’ve made it in the blogging world when the Perry twins go out of their way to monopolise your blog!  😎  This time from the Perry’s Facebook page

Salute!
For Salute this year we will be releasing the plastic set of French Napoleonic Line Chasseurs a Cheval 1808-15.
In a week or so we should have the first shots of them to show you, but for now here’s the cover art by Peter Dennis and a few of the illustrations for the colour guide by Alan.
The box will contain 14 mounted figures. Four uniform variants will be included in the box; campaign and full dress for 1808-12 and campaign and full dress for 1812-15. During this period the coat changed from the single breasted Kinski coat to the lapelled Spencer coat around 1812 although the latter probably took a while to replace the former. Both types are presented in this set, along with elite company uniforms. The figures in the Kinski coat can also be used as Hussars in campaign dress.

And let’s face it Dear readers – the Chasseur a Cheval regiments were a fairly common type of cavalry in the French Army. Far more ubiquitous than your cuirassiers, carabiniers a cheval or Dutch Lancers!

von Peter himself has not been totally idle

Fraulien von Peter herself had the good sense to go out for most of a Saturday and left von Peter himself with a few free hours to himself … once he’d walked dogs etc. Time for a photo shoot session. The current efforts to document the in-house Napoleonic armies over on vonpeterhimself.com had revealed a paucity of suitable photos for some units and this was a chance to right some of those wrongs. The Napoleonic Austrian and Prussian pages have been the major beneficiaries but the Russians weren’t totally forgotten as a sub par photo was replaced with two new images.

Oddcast Seven

The TooFatLardies have released Episode Seven of the TwoFatLardies Oddcast podcast. It  can be got here.

BTW, von Peter himself announces the new episodes of the TwoFatLardies Oddcast because unlike all the other podcasts he listens to this one does not automatically download new episodes onto his computer … and hence several other listening devices. Probably more accurately von Peter himself has not yet figured out how to get the new episodes to download automatically onto his computer! The problem is possibly that locally iTunes is used to deliver blogs and the Lardies have not seen fit to load their Oddcast on to iTunes. So von Peter himself notes the new episodes here as a service to The dear readers just in case they are “in the same boat”. No guarantees on the service however.

 

Hmm. It looks like von Peter himself has started and ended with a rant!  Enough.

Until we meet again …

Another quickie … but with oomph!

And the oomph comes out of Calpe Towers.

New Calpe news

There has been an update to the Calpe Miniatures website. Hurrah!

There are the latest figure releases – firing line figures for the Saxon musketeers, grenadiers and the Jaeger company as well as a musketeer regimental headquarters …

  • S52, Musketeer regiment headquarters. Mounted colonel and major. Standing guard and sergeant-major
  • S53, Saxon musketeer firing line. Three figures firing and three loading
  • S54, Four Saxon musketeers holding fire
  • S55, Four Saxon musketeers. Variations of figures from packs S53 and S54. Two figures with heads turned and two with greatcoat rolls
  • S56, Four Saxon musketeers. Variations of figures from packs S53 and S54. Two bareheaded figures and two with forage caps
  • S57, Six figures. Standard bearer and two NCO guards. Sapper, drummer and senior NCO
  • S58, Grenadier firing line. Two firing figures, two holding fire and two loading
  • S59, Grenadier variants of S58. Head turns, forage cap, greatcoat rolls and bareheaded versions
  • S60, Saxon Jaeger coy. Six figures in skirmish poses.

von Peter himself feels an order is imminent. The Jaeger Company is particularly tempting. One pack of six figures completes the unit. Even von Peter himself should be able to complete / pigment the unit within a decade!  😃

There is also an associated News pronouncement which I reproduce here for the convenience of the The dear readership

The website has been updated with the new Saxon codes. These codes mark the completion of the Saxon musketeers and the start of the light infantry codes. S60, the jaeger company, is the first of the light infantry codes. The figures for the two light infantry regiments will form most of the next release – initially in firing line poses and then in march-attack and advancing poses. I’m not sure how I am going to organise the packs for these, as there were only four light infantry battalions. Fewer variations are required, so I’ll have to give some thought to how I structure these sets of figures.

I am also working on the figures for the Saxon foot artillery. I will release these when I feel that I have completed enough figures. Although I cannot give you a release date, rest assured that the foot artillery gunners will be released some time this year. I will tackle the horse artillery when I deal with the Saxon cavalry. I have the Limbers and caissons ready but need the horses and drivers to go with them. I have also come across some new information recently that may require additions to this range of equipment pieces.

I have had a large number of inquiries about additions to the French ranges. I really enjoy sculpting these and they sell very well so more figures will be forthcoming. I am, however, going to concentrate on the Saxons for the next few months in an effort to complete this army. I felt that alternating between Saxons, French and Prussians was just drawing all three out with nothing being completed to my satisfaction. I am going back to my original way of working and hope to finish the Saxons this year before returning to the French.

I have added information on the Jaegers, Headquarters set (S52) and some thoughts on Saxon skirmishers to the “Guides and Research” section of the website.

An important piece of information I need to draw your attention to is that I will no longer personally accept card details for payment. All payments now have to go through the website or agencies such as Paypal or Sage. The reason for this is that the security protocols for card payments are so stringent now, that the old fashioned way of taking your card number by phone or receiving it by email is frowned upon. I have recently given up my card machine, as it was no longer paying for itself. Last year I put less than ten payments through the machine. Paypal and Sage Pay now process almost all of the payments made to Calpe.  The fact that I do not handle sensitive card data means that the vetting procedure I have to undergo each year to continue trading has become straightforward.

**COMING SOON** Last of all, you will see that there is a new section in the website – “Items for Sale.” I mentioned this in my previous update but was overtaken by events and had to leave it for this update. This new section is experimental and I am not entirely sure how it is going to work. My intention is to fine-tune it as we go along. Any comments are welcome.

As always thank you for your support and very belated good wishes for a not so New Year.

Peter

As rare look at the Sasanian military

Some of The dear readership may be aware that von Peter himself has a Sassanid / Sassanian / Sasanian army mostly composed of Gripping Beast figures.

Above: Sassanian Infantry of a non elite type. The globe hats have been pretty much discredited but it’s not like von Peter himself can tell them to go and get proper hats on! Gripping Beast figures painted by Craig W. in time for a convention game several years – plus the rest! – ago.

When recruiting the army von Peter himself recalls the frustrations of trying to source information on the army. Well perhaps the situation has improved in a form easily accessible to those able to read this here blog. A Synopsis of Sasanian Military Organization and Combat Units by Kaveh Farrokh, Gholamreza Karamian & Katarzyna Maksymiuk is available online for the worlds education. von Peter himself has to admit that he has only read the first few pages to date but they seemed quite acceptable. One can’t complain about the price. Any complaints as comments please!  😃
