2nd battalion, 8th infantry regiment, Duchy of Warsaw

Here is the second battalion painted by Roger for my collection, meant to represent the 2nd battalion of the 8th infantry regiment of the Duchy of Warsaw. 

For those you missed it, pics of the first battalion can be found here . This one is in the traditional march attack, and again Rog has done a beautiful job. I finished basing it a while ago, but in a moment of stupidity/absentmindedness I glued the damn flag upside down! So I had to reorder a flag from GMB and carefully remove the upside down flag to put the new one. Doh! 

I intend to start painting another battalion soon, the 2nd battalion of the 1st regiment (I already painted the 1st battalion) so to have 4 battalion. Add a artillery battery in there and I should have a small Polish brigade for my next game, once all those knee problems are behind me.

First ever sale from Murawski Miniatures

Roger celebrates his 50th birthday in style with his first ever sale. 

Prices have been discounted by up to 25% where possible, in order to help the old man thank the supporters of the range and mark his half century. Roger hopes this will drive sales and allow him to fund the next string of releases, i.e. the Polish hussars, chasseurs and cuirassiers. So if you have any interest in seeing these made and you've been itching to start a Polish force, now is the perfect time to take advantage of some really good prices. 

For a detailed price list, showing all the discounts available, check the ordering page of the website 

There are a host of releases in July and August, so please keep an eye out on TMP and on this blog for more.

The first of the releases is the now-completed firing line.

Exclusive first look at the latest figures from Murawski Miniatures

Just received some pictures of the latest batch of greens from Murawski Miniatures and they are fantastic! Here is an exclusive look at these little beautie.

First, a figure clients have been asking since the very first days of Murawski Miniatures (hint; a dashing cavalryman and Marshal of the Empire). Yes, you all guessed it right, Józef Antoni Poniatowski, Prince Poniatowski

Prince Poniatowski in all his glory

Then we have "Retreat From Moscow", the latest addition to the infantry range, Poles in winter gear, perfect for the Russian campaign and a nice complement to the recent Perry range. 

and then some extras; a Brigade command pack and an officer casualty figure : 

No pics yet, but also currently on Paul Hicks's workbench are the Horse artillery and guns!

Awesome, hey? I'm impressed with what Roger is doing with the range. Not just the quality of the figures, but the way he's been methodically building the range. Raise your hand if you ever thought you'd see that complete of a range of Poles. I've complained so many times about the numerous half-completed ranges in this industry, it's great to see Roger's commitment to finishing it. Rumours have it that the Swedes might soon receive the same attention...

And for those who haven't seen them yet, here are pictures of the recently released infantry in firing line, which I will add to the website in the coming days (the impatient ones can contact Roger and he will send them a listing right away). I especially like the officer firing the pistol, great sculpt.

And after a slight flag problem which I will explain in my next post, expect pics of another painted battalion of Poles in the next few days.
