Rounding out the month of May, I completed two stands of Grenadiers to finally bring the 2nd and 4th Grenadier regiments up to full strength. I did this previously with the 1st Grenadiers after I discovered that the Grenadier regiments were 150% or more the size of the regular line Infantry Regiments. In this case I opted to do an additional stand to add to the existing regiments to provide some flexibility. (They can be used to make a single large unit, or broken out and reflected as an additional unit depending on the rules) It also allows me to sub them in as combined grenadier battalions for other scenarios.
To pair along with the rest of the second line I did on unit with white leggings and coats, and another with black leggings and coats. Here they are with the completed regiments.
This also means that I have passed another milestone in the Zorndorf project. Galytsin's Division of 11,000 men is now at full strength with 2 Grenadier Regiments and 8 Musketeer Regiments. So time for a Pass in Review.
I would be remiss if I didn't do a group photo of my first milestone from earlier this month: Gaugreben's 1700 troopers in the Right Wing Cavalry
Pictured are the Kargopolskiy Horse Grenadiers Novotroiskiy Cuirassiers, Serbskiy Hussars and Tobolskiy Dragoons. The actual strength of the units during the battle were about 3 squadrons for each of the Medium Cavalry and 5 Squadrons for the Hussars, so I will probably only be fielding 2 stands of Dragoons and 2 stands of Hussars for the battle. Thus half of these guys are just for show....
There have been a lot of fits and starts with the project of late, but things are still looking fairly positive. I have two artillery batteries with limbers remaining for the artillery, four stands of hussars of for the left wing, four infantry regiments for the 1st line and 5 regiments for the 1st line left to do. It may be close.
