15mm SYW Prussians

From an order of battle for Rossbach. Frei Korps and Essex figures.
Latest Additions:
Dragoon Regt. #4 and I/ IR21.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Caught up at last, now out of figures.  Still owe the project  a regiment of cuirassiers, a regiment of hussars and a couple of battalion guns.  However I think I’ll draw a line under it here.  Too many ‘bees in the bunnet’ for now to do any more.  Finish it next year sometime perhaps.

  1. That flag is not familiar to me - although it certainly is very Prussian looking. What unit or state is it for?

  3. Lentulus: The flag is Prussian al right, just not for this Prussia, Doh! Couldn't remember it so looked it up again. Turns out it belonged to Royal Prussia, which was part of the Polish Commonwealth until 1772. That was when Alte Fritz made himself King of Prussia at the time of the first Partition of Poland. So during 7 years war Fritz wasn't King of Prussia but King in Prussia, or so I'm informed. Gave up at this point trying to figure out what flag, if any, the non-Polish Prussians would have used. Very likely from the arms of the ruling house but I kinda lost interest. Anyway, I've dumped the flag, the boys can't march under false colours.

    Cheers Remco.

  5. Cheers Ray. Rules? Haven't got around to it yet; I need to get some opposition for them first! The old Charge! rules by Asquith/Cook do have some appeal however, maybe with some adaptation.

  8. Great work ol'boy nice to see the old 15mm Frei Korp getting a run, they were a favourite of mine, except for their ability to snap just by looking at them...... I think that has all changed now.

    Nice little command you have put together there.

    cheers
