One of the problems of having talented friends is that - well - they are just so damn talented that it's hard to hate and envy them as much as one should. Our man in Budapest, Krisztian Takacs, has been sculpting a range of 15mm figures for the Hungarian Revolution of 1848. They are, I think you'll agree, very fine looking fellows - one could almost forgive them for being in 15mm.
These examples were painted by TK himself and represent Hungarian hussars in the new hussar uniform introduced in 1848. A disturbing lack of shakos I know, but there are some pelisses which is something. I keep meaning to sit down and draft some scenarios for 1848, but I've been decoyed into the Crimea.
This picture is probably more useful to those of us familiar with Hungarian currency, but it does give some idea of the size and heft of the figures. You can see some more of TKs pictures here.
And for those who do play in 15mm and fancy giving a new period a bash, you can find these for sale at the Hagen Miniatures Store.
