I have been painting some more Kieler Zinnfiguren for my Freiburg project.

First up a unit a Prussian Frei battalion.

Image

I have painted these as the Frei-Infanterie von Lüderitz and these were part of Kleists command at Freiburg.

For my next unit I decided on a paint restoration on the remaining old factory painted Kieler Austrian Grenadiers I bought on ebay.

Image

This is how they looked before my restoration.

Image


I have tried to recreate how they might have looked when they were bought in Vienna in 1936. I repainted, touched up and tidyed up the paint work.

Finally I have painted an Austrian officer again using a Kieler figure.

My "old factory" senses detect the sweet smell of success. :thumbs:

My latest painted unit is the Karlstader Oguliner Grenz in their earlier pre 62 uniform. The privates are Grunewald figures whilst the NCO is a Kieler figure.

I have also bought some second hand painted figures from Berliner Zinnfiguren.

Hungarian Infantry

And Prussian Cavalry

Image

The Infantry cost just over £2 and cavalry £4.20 each. Postage was 15 Euro.
