Pesky Prusskies

I've been asked a few times for pictures of my completed Prussians ( well, Landwehr cavalry and grenadier battalion to come......)
Here they are: all Foundry and Calpe with some Perry's in there as I liked the figures.

They are on my new terrain layout purchased from pseudo Welshman Gareth Lane.

Now you cannuicks and Frogs have no excuse not to come over for a game.

For the record the infantry comprises of:
One line regiment - 3 battalions and Jaegar
One reserve regiment - 3 battalions
One Landwehr regiment - 4 battalions and volunteer Jaegar
Cavalry comprises of:
One cuirassier regiment
One dragoon regiment
One hussar regiments
One Silesian Uhlan regiment

Artillery comprises of:
One foot battery - 2 x 12lbs
One horse battyer - 2 x 6lbs and howitzer

There are also:
Brigade command stand
Blucher p*ssed out of his mind plus minders
Artillery command
Two senior commands
Light cavalry brigade command
Heavy cavalry brigade command.
Hope you enjoy the pictures.

First of all a quick roll call of painting for 2010.

37 x 2 Bavarian infantry - mine!
1 x 18 Bavarian infantry - mine!
2 x Bavarian guns and 14 crew - mine
15 x 3 Russian cavalry regiments - mine!

3 x Prussian Foundry horse artillery and 20 crew and command - mine!

Not a bad year then really.

I've got plans to finish my Russians, do a couple of commissions and add to my French with Perrys. Also should have completed the purchase of my allied 1815 army to start painting the end of 2011.

Hope to get some pictures of the completed Prussian army and my new terrain layout soon.

Also you will see my new painting website soon and I am hyoping to take more commission work on as I am getting fed up with this marketing malarkey. Too much stress and not enough drinking time.
