250th Anniversary: Battle of Warburg

Another break in usual service, but I thought it nice to share my excitement here, too: Today I visited Germany's largest 18th century reenactment, held near the small town of Warburg, where on the same day, 250 years ago, a battle was fought between an Allied and a French army.
The whole event was a blast for me: Not only because I'm a sucker for the 18th century (you might remember), but also for it reignited the passion for my AWI miniatures. In anticipation I had just the other day dragged out the Light Dragoons I'd started months ago - and now they are ready for basing. So, expect them anytime soon.

I've prepared a small report (with a few of countless pictures I've taken) on the Lead Adventure Forum. Here are only some preview shots, that, if any, might be of interest for you wargamers: Two excellent displays by RĂ¼diger Fischer representing said battle as well as the Battle of Leuthen in 1757:

Next time, back to normal service, I promise. ;-)

It looks impressive in size,although I cannot see much of it.
I'm looking forward to seeing your latest AWI work.:-)

I like the Leuthen terrain. Are these 20mm figures or some other size?

@Christopher: The Warburg display wasn't finished yet (e.g. you might recognise the gap at the table edge in the first photo), so I took mainly some overview shots. If you experienced difficulties to see the actual pictures, please let me know!
You can also take a look at the exhibitor's site:

@Der Alte Fritz: Nice to have you here! Yes, the figures are of 1/72 scale. The exhibitor provides a list of sources on his page (see link above, and there under "Figurenliste").
