Over years the I have had various Napoleonic wargame armies in different scales. I have collected most of the major, and many minor, nationalities. However I have never had a Prussian army. When I started my classic Napoleonic last year I decided that I was going to do some Prussians.
I have so far managed to get 2 units of Hinton Hunt original cavalry units and a recast Blucher. Today the postman delivered a small parcel and to my delight I now have some Prussian Infantry.
These figures are part of trade with Tony S who is getting my Garrison French in exchange. Part of the fun of collecting classic Napoleonics is the searching and buying figures and exchanging figures with other gamers.
I now have 3 Infantry units in my painting pile, First up is s unit of DK Line Infantry including a standard bearer.
I had originally got in contact with Tony via a post on Matt's blog regarding sone DK Lutzowers. Tony had included this unit in the trade and he has added a couple of Prussian command figures. I am very pleased with this unit and it will go with my Lutzow Lancers.
And last but not least a unit of DK Jagers with Officer and Hornist figures.
I now have quiet a queue of classic figures to paint. I have decided I need to sit down and have a painting plan. My first objective is to finish the French 5th Line by the end of January.
