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.
