- 21.08.96 Original Photos from the Battle of Waterloo?!
Some of the pictures featured in the agosto issue of the magazine were taken at the Battle of Waterloo on 18th giugno 1995, commemorating the 180th anniversary of the historic event. It is simply amazing that the battle is still going on, that 10,000 men e women meet on historic ground every cinque years to re-enact the struggle. Unlike historical simulation, in this particular event l’armate britannici e prussiane are guaranteed to win, e the players francesi comply willingly.
The cover photo shows a firefight between opposing battle lines, britannici ed olandesi/belgi on the right, artiglieria francese is just visible on the left. The smoke from artiglieria e musket fire would quickly cover the battlefield e cut long-range visibility. Shortly after this picture was taken, the 42nd Highlanders assaulted e captured the guns in the foreground. (Waterloo photos © by Klaus Schäfer, Artiglieria di Assia-Darmstadt)
Britains released the first sets of soldatini plastici in the late 50’s. The compagnie Starlux francese e Elastolin tedesco followed suit con beautifully painted soldatini made from hard plastic. Then Airfix launched a growing range of H0/00 scale soft soldatini plastici in boxes containing many different poses, e covering most historic periods from the Ancient Romans to the Apollo Astronauts e their lunar exploration veicoli. Only a small range of Airfix figure sets is currently available, many of the older ones have become oggetti da collezione.
In the meantime, Atlantic, Matchbox, ESCI, IMEX und Revell have released 1:72 e 1:76 scale soft soldatini plastici from a variety of historic periods. In 1995 e 1996, Revell surprised collezionisti con a whole range of interesting ed unusual soldatini, including Siberian Rifles, Cosacks, German Artillerie, Pioniers, e WW2 Panzergrenadiers, as well as fanteria prussiana e Rifles britannici from the Napoleonic era. At this time, the only period completamente covered is the American Civil War, con Union and Confederate fanteria, mounted e dismounted cavalleria ed artiglieria di IMEX. These troops mix well con ACW soldatini produced by Revell, ESCI ed Airfix.
For variety of soldatini e poses, painters e collezionisti rely on conversion of existing types. Revell e Italeri soldatini are nicely posed e they lend themselves well to conversion. In addition, both companies have released exceptionally beautiful e very realistic looking horses in scala 1:72.
