    French and Prussian Officer – Franco Prussian War

    The Franco-Prussian lasted from July 19th 1870 to May 10th1871 and was fought between the German states of the North German Confederation led by the Kingdom of Prussia and the Second French Empire of Napoleon III. Essentially the war started due to the ambitions of Prussia to unify Germany which resulted in fears within France about a shift of balance and power within Europe.

    Amidst growing tensions and concerns on July 16th 1870, the French parliament voted to declare war on the German Kingdom of Prussia. Surprisingly the conflict began three days later with Germany invading northeastern France, with the French being caught unprepared.

    After a series of swift victories by German forces throughout France, Paris finally fell on January 28th 1871.

    Further to winning the war Germany became a unified country and with the signing of the treaty of Frankfurt acquired the majority of Alsace and certain areas of Lorraine.

    With the balance of power shifting considerably in Europe and Otto von Bismarck demanding great authority within Europe the foundations for World War I were laid.

  • Mortal Enemies – Scottish Clansman

    43,90
    • Sculptor: Christos Panagiotopoulos
    • Painter: Christos Panagiotopoulos
    • Scale: 75 mm
    • Material: HQ resin

    Unpainted and Unassebled miniature for modellers and collectors

    The Battle of Culloden was the final confrontation of the Jacobite rising of 1745.

    Raising an army consisting mostly of Scottish clansmen along with smaller units of Irish and Englishmen from the Manchester Regiment, Charles` efforts initially met with success and at one point began to threaten London. However, a series of events forced the army`s return to Scotland, where they were soon pursued by an army raised by the Duke of Cumberland. The two forces eventually met at Culloden, on terrain that made the highland charge difficult and gave the larger and well-armed British forces the advantage. The battle lasted only an hour, with the Jacobites suffering a bloody defeat. Between 1,500 and 2,000 Jacobites were killed or wounded in the brief battle. In contrast, only about 300 government soldiers were killed or wounded
