Frei Korps Dragoons von Kleist

These are great Foundry figures. This regiment of dragoons had a unique hat - a fur Grenadier bearskin and would be even more spectacular with a more colourful uniform.

...and more Prussian officers.

This finishes off the Prussian mounted officers. In the front rank are generals for the Advance Guard plus a Dragoon Brigade general. In the rear rank are ten mounted junior officers commanding batteries of artillery.

7/30 Kanitz Grenadiers

I thought I had finished with Prussian Grenadiers but actually there are two more to finish. This is the penultimate.

I have not posted much recently but actually I have been busy with SYW stuff and I have over twenty guns to do in the next few weeks. This year will see the end of the Prussians and next year will be something similar - Russians and Kreis.

A glitter of Prussian generals

28mm Prussian generals - 5 double-base Lieutenant Generals, three for infantry and two for cavalry.
All the singe chaps at the front are Major-Generals. Figures are from Foundry, Perry (AWI Hessians), Front Rank and Black Hussar. The latter are slightly smaller but just work.

Prussian Frei Corps von Kleist Green Croat battalions

Here are two 16 figure battalions of the Green Croats. Kleist raised a large Corps which grew and grew throughout the SYW and which, by the end of the war, included three ten-squadron regiments of cavalry as well as infantry, jaegers and artillery. I am also trying to find out more details on the flags they were allowed to carry.

Foundry does figures to cover the entire Kleist range although I don't know why they don't have a skirmishing figure. I don't think the sculptor was Copplestone but I'm unsure who designed the range.

Prussian Guard IR15/3

Here is the last of the guard battalions. Figures are by Foundry. The Prussian army is largely finished and all that remains to paint is some artillery, generals and Frei-Korps Kleist.

Prussian Guard IR15/2

Here is the second battalion of the Prussian Guard IR15. I have previously done the first battalion so here I am filling in gaps. All figures are from Wargames Foundry.
