IR #7 Neipperg


I figured I would end the year strong with one last Regiment.  This is another Old Glory 10mm Austrian Infantry regiment painted up as IR #7 Neipperg with their blue facings. 

I am quite liking the look of the large regiments, although I would prefer to be able to add 2 flags to the command stands for better appearance given how they dominate the unit at this scale.  The temptation is still there to add a third rank, but I am still resisting.

For next year I plan to expand this collection significantly with an overall plan to get 20 regiments for each side plus a bevy of cavalry.  I plan to get some Dragoons on the table in January-February to see how 18 model regiments look for this scale.  Of course, there are a lot of 18mm Russians already in the process stream, so we will have to see where events take me.
