My latest project, yes I know I have still not finished so many others, what can I say I'm easily distracted.....
But Seven Years War...starting with the Austrians, why? Because I bough a couple of job lots cheap and I thought why not!
For inspiration and uniform guides I have followed a couple of great blogs and a very good wiki page..
Both web pages are very good fonts of knowledge!
The progress so far, 5 cavalry regiments, 5 infantry battalions, 4 combined grenadier battalion, 1 grenze battalion and 3 6pdr guns and limbers...there are 2 units of Reichsarmee also.
Kurassier Regiment Anhalt-Zerbst (KR25)
Dragoon Regiment Jung-Modena (DR13)
Dragoon Regiment Kolowrat-Krakowski (DR37)
Hungarian Hussar Regiment Hadik (HR12)
Hussar Regiment Baranyal (HR30)
Combined Grenadiers from Infantry Regiment de Ligne(Pink) and Sprecher(Red)
Combined Grenadiers from Infantry Regiments Hessen-Cassel(Blue) and Marschal(Red)
Hungarian Combined Grenadiers from Infantry Regiments Joseph Esterhazy(Red) and Bethlan(Brown)
Infantry Regiment Marschal (IR18)
Infantry Regiment de Ligne(IR38)
Infantry Regiment Hessen-Cassel(IR27)
Hungarian Infantry Regiment Joseph Esterhazy(HIR37)
Grenze Regiment No.1 Banal
Finally 3 6pdr guns and limbers
All the figures are from Pendraken and I can not recommend the miniatures nor the service highly enough!
There is much more to come as this is about 1/3rd of the lead mountain I have!
