SYW Prussian Army

The Bavarians currently in progress are the first Revell SYW figures I've painted in quite a while, so here is my first SYW army, the Prussians.

The whole army


Left wing cavalry, two units each of hussars, cuirassiers and dragoons


The infantry, eight infantry and two grenadier regiments, plus Freikorps and Jaegers


The right wing cavalry, some suffering from a particularly strong florescent pink.


Some of the artillery including a home made caisson

An oustanding view!
I love Revell 7YW figures. I did used in the past the Austrian Dragoons to make my Old Guard Grenadiers a Cheval, and the horses are really large and look well for Napoleonic heavy cavalry. The Revell Prussian Hussars, with a new head, also form part of many of my napoleonic hussar units.
Best regards
Rafa

Still a very nice collection Will! Did you simply use the Austrian Dragoons with a painted-on cuirass for your Cuirassiers?

Looking forward to seeing your Bavarians when finished.

Rafa, I gree they are excellent heavy vcavalry figures, much better than my Airfix Cuirassiers

Sir William, yes they are a simple painting conversion after trimming away the obvious lapels.

Phil, it helps to put the additions in context, just wait for the Austrains, and then the other hangers-on

Jeff - there are schemes planned for a new imaginations campaign, next autumn/fall.
