Not quite as majestic as the Austrians is my growing Prussian Army. However it is also nearing table readiness. Currently there are:
- 11 Musketeer Regiments
- 4 Fusilier Regiments
- 1 Grenadier Regiment (Grenadier Guards)
- 3 Curassier Regiments
- 3 Dragoon Regiments
- 5 Hussar Regiments
- 7 Artillery Batteries (1 Howitzer, 3 Heavy)
- 1 Army Commander
- 6 Division Commanders (1st Line, 2nd Line, Left Wing, Right Wing, Right Wing Cavalry, Left Wing Cavalry)
The majority of the units are from Old Glory Miniatures although there is a strong Pendraken contingent comprised of the original figures for this project.
Center Infantry comprised of 8 regiments of 77 figures each.
Overall army growth has taken a short recess as I focused on getting the Grenadier stands completed. I was able to add another four stands (60 figures) to complete the outstanding regiments.
Lastly, I managed to paint another three division commanders to nearly complete the command stands for this project.
The left wing is pictured with three nearly complete units. I have everything but the banners completed on two regiments of Old Glory Miniatures Fusiliers, and I need to finish the basing on the Oertzen Dragoons.
So what is left? Currently in the lead pile I have the following
- 4 Regiments of Musketeers
- 1 Regiment of Fusiliers
- 2 Regiments of Curassiers
- 1 Regiment of Dragoons
- 1 Regiment of Hussars
- 1 Battery of Heavy Guns
- 1 Battery of Howitzers
- 1 Lt. General (3 figs)
- 2 Division Commanders (Reserve, Vanguard)
- 4 Limbers
Not a bad dent in the pile for the first year's effort.
Not a bad effort, indeed. Bloody fabulous! You have managed to knock-out almost two complete armies for this project in a year and that does not count the 18mm SYW Russian army for another project.ReplyDelete
The seven years war has indeed dominated 2018. So what will2019 bring ?Delete
Maybe a new project?Delete
What do you have in mind?Delete
I'd call that spectacular production in anyone's book as well!ReplyDelete

Not bad indeed, a very impressive army. Interesting how the old glory with their tighter basing give a different appearance. I now have a clear direction for my project but it is a long journey. Look8ng forward to seeing these forces fight 🙂ReplyDelete
A few more units to go but I have a plan to use them in the first quarter of the new yearDelete
Great looking army - Fred the Great is a favorite of mine!ReplyDelete
Thanks. It is certainly an interesting time period. It is so nice for both sides to actually have a fighting chance.Delete
