German Schutztruppe in Africa, 1900
« on: January 13, 2009, 09:43:46 pm »
My Potzauboys are now officially members of the German Schutztruppe in Deutsch Ostafrika, around 1900. They will be displayed at the Wolfsburg Convention 2009 within a big Diorama of the british and german parts of East Africa...

I know, they did not have Camels there ::) ::)

WONDERFUL !!!


They're BEAUTIFUL, Olki !!!

As everyone knows, this is my very favourite period of history (1870s to 1930s)!

Thanks for sharing and good luck at Wolfsburg.

All the best,
Richard

I like the way you photo'd them in black & white looks really authentic.
Where do the camel saddles come from?

The Camelriders are from the old Hunter´s Stand set and very rare.... :'(
They have long been sold out at the DS...

The white Marine troops are sold at the DS as cooks form the Wedding Guests Set
