|Seidlitz Command stand using the Pedraken Sculpt|
Now that the Zorndorf project has cleared the slips, I have been putting a lot of energy into the 10mm SYW project for my personal collection. The Austrians have been getting a lot of attention of late, so I decided to tackle my on-hand Prussian models.
First up are four regiments of Prussian Infantry using the 5-man Old Glory strips. Here again there are 60 infantry models per regiment + a mounted a Colonel. I split up the command stand like I did with the Austrian units (2 flags in the front, two drums + officer to the back), however separating the Standard bearer and officer mini without damaging the casting is slightly more challenging than with the Austrian troops. Thus I compromised, and left the officer and standard bearer attached, creating a little gap between the flags. Not too unsightly, but not ideal.

In the end, I have opted to bunt for now and just added a second flag (and put the correct flags with each unit) for the Grenadier Guards and Liebgards.
Lastly I completed a howitzer battery using the Pendraken minis mold and some more Prussian Command stands.

I have some limbers still on the table as well the first Prussian Cavalry regiment, so a bit more 10mm SYW is still on the horizon.
