Dutch FR Fieldbakery

I came accross a plate by Dirk Langendijk which normally is a reliable source of uniforms and situations of this period and which depicted a field bakery at the end of the 18th century
I have never seen a this kind of mobile breadovens so is made a biggger picture of this part of the drawing:

As I wanted a theme for our FR demo game for Crisis 2020 (which is cancelled by the way) I tried to model this ovens and find suitable figures for it in the range of Black Hussar Miniatures which, although ment for the SYW, would be suitable for my little French Revolutionary project.
So after modelling three ovens and ordering and painting the figures this is the result:

And of course you notice it is a Dutch bakery!

2 opmerkingen:

  1. Lovely field bakery, I did something similar for my 40mm 18C collection (see http://tidders-kingdomofwittenberg.blogspot.com/2016/10/40mm-field-bakery.html). The black hussar sets are really nice and the are on my list to add to my 18C 28mm collection

  2. Thanks for the kind remark; I know your site and have seen your bakery, very nice
