A new project...

I have been mulling this over for a while. How about a 600 foot figure Prussian 7YW army with 5 Cav and 8-12 Artillery? I could follow this up with an Austrian and French and Russian army?

According to the Hat site there is going to be a bunch of figures due out in the next release...
8280 7YW Prussian Infantry Marching

In queue for release E23
Test shot
Painted test figs
8281 7YW Prussian Infantry Action

In queue for release E23
Test shot
8282 7YW Prussian Infantry Command

So I will probably go for a marching army this time.  Lots of identical figures marching their way across Silesia...

Ok then.... 10 boxes of marching = 500 figures Two boxes of action = 100 and 2 command puts some flags on the bases.

18 figs to a battalion - 30 Battalions.

But then I am going to have to get some Zvezda Hussars as well...plus a couple of boxes of Zvezda Prussian grenadiers.....

Mmmmm. I think I am going to have to be nice to Santa over the coming months. This should be a cool project at least until the Peninsular British get some heavy and light cavalry to take on those pesky frogs.
