French Field Bakery

 

The first figures completed in 2021 are a Eureka Miniatures Bakery and field oven


The model is from their French Revolution range, so probably a bit early for my 1815 collection, but I think it's a nice little vignette to add to the collection and will place nicely in a farmyard or tavern courtyard on my battlefields. 

It is a rather lovely set with four bakers, including a Cantiniere kneading the dough up on the table with her feet and a chap ready with a bakers paddle to load the loaves into the oven. The flour sacks and log pile are also included in the set.


I also added a couple of bottle from a set of resins I had, rat poison and a bottle of rough wine to slake their thirsts.

  5. What a fantastic support element! I love the irony of the Revolutionary period having a Bakery...I though they all ate cake! :-) Lovely job Paul

  7. An excellent addition to your Napoleonic collection as no army should have to march on an empty stomach.

  8. This set has been on my "to buy" list for years - from memory, there are a couple of similar ones in the Eureka range too - they are all outstanding. You have done a great job with nice subdued colours on these bakers!

    1. Thank you, I wanted to stop them being to jazzy, I even repainted the Cantinieres bodice in brown to tone them down.
