Österreichische Grenzer (Panduren)

Testbericht der 1:220 Figuren von Baccus

6. (Warasdiner) St. Georger Regiment, Grenz-Infanterie.

Grenzer des 6. (Warasdiner) St. Georger Grenz-Regiments. These 1:220 scale miniatures are mounted on a 38 × 38 mm battalion stand, compatibel with the Volley & Bayonet game system, which represents a battalion of 500 men in skirmish order. Two or three of these stands are needed to field a Grenz-Regiment on campaign.

Baccus6mm Pandours are 8 mm tall, und they are sold in bags of 48 Figuren. Small scale miniatures like these are perfect for wargames, und mass scenes in historical dioramas.

Excellent choice of subject. Baccus Grenzers may be painted as Austrian, Russian, or Prussian irregulars of the period. The Figuren are sculpted with round cuffs, making them most suitable as Pandours of the Austrian 5th to 9th Grenz-Regiment.

Suitable poses. The firing und loading Figuren are beautifully sculpted, despite their small size, und they look very realistic when painted. The Grenzers carry a water bottle und ammunition pouch, but they seem to have dropped their pack und rolled cloak prior to battle.

Good casting quality, the Figuren are practically free of flash. Only a mould line across the Tschako top needs to be removed prior to paintng.

Many wargamers use 1:220 scale Figuren to fight large battles on a small playing surface. Others maintain the suggested base sizes of a particular rule set, but mount smaller Figuren on them to achieve the more realistic look of massed formations.

Kompatibel mit buildings, terrain, und model railroad accessories in Z scale.

Inkompatibel mit the noticeably smaller 1:300 scale Croat Grenzers available from Heroics & Ros, although they may be deployed in the same army if used in different regiments.

Irregular troops need to be available in many different skirmishing poses, including kneeling, observing, commanding, advancing, und running figures, to appear less uniform when mounted on skirmish bases.

The cavalry sabre carried by these Figuren is too short, und it does not seem to be curved at all.

Historische Verwendung

  • 5. und 6. (Warasdin) Grenz-Regiment
  • 7. bis 9. (Slawonisches) Grenz-Regiment

Mögliche Umbauten

Baccus6mm Grenzers are prefect for 18th Century simulation games. Figures in 1:220 scale require less space, und they are easy to paint en masse.
