Belated birthday greetings for yesterday, Willie, from another who has reached 69 (in October).  Now you have Stuart Reid's excellent book "Like Hungary Wolves", you might be considering painting some figures from that era.  I can certainly recommend the Highlanders produced by the Austrian Editor, Scheibert.  These figures are available from http://www.zinnfigurenwelt-katzelsdorf.at     
Marko and Gerhard kindly recommended the site to me when I was looking for information about Scheibert in September.  Peter oo~

Funny thing, in the last year I have hunted them all down with the exception of the Somme which I have little interest in.

My favorite was the Zulu Wars though all of them have been exceptionally well written.  This one manages to tell the entire story of the campaign in this one volume with the major focus centered around Rorke's Drift.

I saw and ignored these for years until the Crimea Lancers cousin Charles put out sparked my interest.  Thoroughly impressed on the quality I hunted them down one by one paying far more than if I purchased over time as they were discovered.

Any way one of many guilty pleasures and another wound to my wallet cousin Charles has to answer for...

It has been some time since I wrote about a book but I just got this today it had been on order for ever. .  Like Hungry Wolves Culloden Moor April 16 1746, by Stuart Reid. It explains the battle and the color plates are outstanding . Published by Windrow & Green . These series of books are out standing and well worth the price. The next one will be either Into the Valley of Death The British Cavalry Division at Balaclava 1854 or Zulu Isandlwana & Rorke's Drift. Willie

  Well I have two new books to talk about. The first is the Honved Army 1848-1849 By Gyozo Somogyi.  This covers the revolution of 1848 and it has lots and lots of color in the book. I know have 7 books in the series and will be getting the next 3 soon. The next on is a small book in German Reiter, Husaren und Grenadiere  Die Uniformen der Kaiserlichen Armee am Rhein 1754. A lot of the picture are from the time period and the detail on uniforms is not that good but still lots of information .  Willie

Well it came today  Early Iron Age Greek Warrior 1100-700BC  by Osprey publishing . Its a nice little book and for painting early Greeks its great. Now the question is who does Iron age figures. Willie

 Well I am back with a new book. Hungarian Military 1758-1848 By Gyozo Somogyi  . Lots and lots of great color stuff Infantry, Hussars, and equipment, Artillery and frontier Guards. I have 4 to go in this series. For the historian I got this book for my Indian Army stuff. The Men Who Ruled India By Philip Mason very interesting. Willie
