Giant Commission -- Complete Prussian Army

The Prussian army is finally done!  Here it is in all its glory.




Line Infantry, Jager

These are regiments 1-12, with two musketeer, one grenadier, and one fusilier battalion per regiment.




Landwehr Infantry, Foot Artillery
This is the landwehr of six regions, with four two-battalion regiments in each region.




Cavalry, Horse Artillery
Here we have six regiments each of dragoons, landwehr cavalry, hussars, and uhlans along with four regiments of cuirassiers.

This army contains 674 foot, 91 mounted, and 21 guns.  I started in early March, so it took me just under four months.  All the figures are AB Miniatures.  The flags are from GMB Designs, and the bases are from Litko.

French
Austrians
Russians

The last army will be the Anglo-Allies at Waterloo.

  1. Brilliant job Scott, very inspiring.

    Any tips for fast painting? I'm gonna give it a go with austrians. Not gonna be going into my usual detail for them.

    1. My biggest tip is array identical poses on the same painting stick. This lets you paint six figures at once, with the same brush stroke used for each figure. It makes it go a lot faster for me.

    What about the Peninsular war for which you will need Portugese and Spainish

    Also I dare say for completeness also the war of 1812

    2. I definitely want to add all of the French allies:
      Polish, Saxons, Bavarians, Westphalians, Badeners, and Italians.
      Not sure about Portuguese and Spanish at this point...
