On the workbench - February 2011

With the exception of a few colonial casualty bases I've cracked through my January workload in fine time, so it's time to move on to my latest target. It's quite ambitious and I suspect it will take more than February to get them all completed, but here goes:
  • SYW Bavarian Infantry (4 x 24 fig battalions)
  • SYW Bavarian Grenadiers (24 fig battalion)
  • SYW Bavarian Cavalry (2 x 8 fig squadrons) - I know they didn't fight, but they did in the WAS - I'm also trying to find out details of their Hussars in the WAS, Knotel only shows an officer in 1747.
  • SYW Bavarian Artillery (4 guns and crews plus 2 limbers)
  • plus some command and casualty bases
  • finally some SYW black grenadiers for my imagi-nation.
So a big list, but difficult to break down into smaller chunks as they'll start off as big batches and then gradually shift over to work on individual battalions and squadrons.

That's quite a list!

I just like to be ambitious, all now sorted, washed and beginning the undercoating.

Will,

I have no idea why (old age?), but I first posted this under your thread on the Zvezda Germans.

Unfortunately, Hoffman's "Army of the Blue King" only goes slightly beyond the WSS. I checked both OMM and Caliver and it seems that there is a book that only OMM list in stock specifically on the Bavarians in the WAS. It is:

1-49859 Manley, Stephen WAR OF AUSTRIAN SUCESSION:V9 Danish & German State 8.5x11, uniform details of line Infantry/Cavalry,Artillery/Support troops, b/w drawings for Denmark, Hanover, Bavaria, Paltinate, Saxony, and Hesse.1 vol, 44 pgs 2002 HOPEWELL, OMM PUBLISHING
NEW-softcover ......$12.00

Sorry I can't be of more assistance.

Bil, after much searching I found the information, somewhere I forgot to look at in the first place, "The Leuthen Journal" Ionnis has posted a number of Knotel plates including the Hussar Corps Count "Piosasque" in 1755
