Sneaking one last update in for the month of August I have two regiments of 10mm Prussian Fusiliers. I ordered these figures from Pendraken back when I did the first units for this collection, thus back to the old two-rank basing system. I at least have enough Pendraken units painted to form their own separate detachment. With four regiments of Musketeers, two of Fusiliers and two stands of combined Grenadiers. I am going to rebase my attempts at three rank Pendraken figures for now, and just settle for one brigade of 'odd men out'
As to the Fusiliers I opted to paint Fusilier Regiment Nr 35 "Prince of Prussia" and Nr 36 "von Munchow" One thing I have really become fond of in the Pendraken castings are the cast flags for the standard bearers. I have an issue with the paper standards breaking off from my 6mm Napoleonics, and these are much more robust. The scale lends itself to a 'impressionist' interpretation of the flags anyway, since you rarely see them at less than 50cm.

Also crossing the finish line are a pair of Pendraken artillery limbers. These came with the Howitzer models, and I opted to cut the taper off a pair of artillerists to make it look like they are grabbing the limbers. I really like the quality on these castings, I just wish that Pendraken would bundle them separately.
Everyone have a great weekend (three day for us Americans), and stay safe.
