Hungarian Officer


I've just come back from a weekend in London playing 15mm ancients to the Armati rules - the figures look really small after spending the last few months with 40mm!

The sculptor is currently working on the Hungarians, and in particular is making an officer in a different pose to that available in the Prussian moulds.

The right arm has been lowered so that it will look right carrying either a pole arm to command fusiliers, a musket to command grenadiers, or a sword to command either.

Also, by holding back the right arm the front lacing (which needs changing) can be shown better.

The raised arm best suited for a sword
Proposed Hungarian Officer
Can carry sword, pole arm or musket.


Any thoughts?

  1. I like the alternate officer pose and the hussar boots on him. The sabre could have a more defined curve. Maybe it is the angle of the photo.

    Which type of pole-arm will be in the mold? I would think that if it had a tassel it could be modified after casting for lower ranking officers.

  2. Glad you like the pose.

    The sword may have to be the same one as in the Prussian mould; as there will probably not be space for both a pole arm and sword in with the Hungarians. The Prussian swords are easily bent to the correct curvature.

    The intention is for an officer's Partisan, and it is planned there will also be an NCO's 'halberd'.

  3. Both very nice poses that will match their troops poses. A good idea to have different officer poses if only for the benefit of converters.
