Here are two "big picture views of my Prussian Infantry regiments, Jager Battalions, Artillery batteries and Cavalry. These are all based in accordance with the rules "Volley & Bayonet". The large squares are 3"x 3" and each has 20 figures on it, including a leader, color bearer and drummer. For anyone not familiar with wargaming sizes, a figure that is in the scale of 10mm is a half inch tall. Down below here is a side view at the Prussian 2nd Armee, that I have done so far.
I really like the look of a massed body of troops you have with 20 10mm figs on these bases. Since the Prussians fought in a more loose order or skirmish formation, I didn't rank these boys up as much as I did the French. When I paint and base my figures, I go for not only the historical look but the feel of an army.
The next photo is a closeup of one of my regiments. You might notice one of the figures lying down on the base. When I prime and paint my figures, I use Elmers glue and attach them to a craft stick. Sometimes I use too much glue and the poor guy snaps off at the ankles as I try to pop him free. So, he becomes a casualty on the base.
Here's a side view of the same regiment.
And here is the back view....All of my figures are primed in black and then a Prussian Blue basecoat. I always matt spray my figs, but unfortunately it really darkens them up to almost black. I do the leather straps in black, the greatcoat in a lighter grey to stand out. Helmets are black with brass trim.
Now any army is not just riflemen, you need Artillery and Cavalry, you need Combined Arms. Here's my Artillery, which could be either 4 pdr or 6 pdr pieces.
These are my Uhlans or Lancers...the coolest looking Cavalry around. Think of the "Charge of the Light Brigade when you think of this type of unit. Prussia used their cavalry much more effectively in the scouting role. There is a story of a Prussian cavalryman, who came to a river bank, and saw what he thought was the French Army on the other side. The rider then dismounted and swam across the river to scout out the French positions and then swam, back to his horse and rode back to HQ with the information of where the French army was. That's how you scout:-)
And of course you need an Army Commander, This is Major General von Pape, Commanding General of the 1st Guards Divison.....or a close approximate.Finally, a ground view of my troops moving into action.
