Prussian Infantry - Franco-Prussian War



I planned to post these pictures about a week ago but was interupted by a phone call... my son David and my wife had been in a severe car accident, some dude thought it was a good ideea to skip a stop sign, so my wife and son hit his car right in the side in 90km/hour... 

I have spent the last week at the hospital with my Son thant got the most severe injuries of the two. My beloved wife got a fracture in her foot and ofcours a real beating by the crach, David broke an arm, fractured a finger on the other arm, got face damages, fractured jaw, 3 teeths dislocated, a minor damage on the liver and a general beateing by the crach so he had to have intensive care and several operations fixing his arm, teths, the liver damage they had under observation for a week and there was no need for surgery.. 

It seems like we can go home from the hospital tomorrow, he are bored so I guess he is recovered quiet well considering all damages.  

I´m so glad they survived at all in that speed.




Prussian infantry from the Eagle of Empire range, except for the mounted officer that are a official Hamburger Tactica mini.

  15. Quite shocked to hear about your family's accident. Glad it wasn't worse... bad enough as it was already.
    Excellent work on your Prussians though! Reminds me of those almost finished Bavarians waiting patiently in the queue.
