The machinery of Napoleonic warfare at Schloss von Peter has has been recruited to a new high recently. Both sides of the conflict have benefited so the bloodshed is expected to continue unabated. Most excellent! Today von Peter himself presents for the readers delight some newly recruited Prussians.
The son & heir had rolled up his sleeves and rolled out his second completed Prussian battalion – the first of the Prussian Infantry Regiment Nr. 10 (1. Silesian). And when von Peter himself says that the The son & heir rolled up his sleeves he really means it. The vast majority of the unit was painted and based in the two days leading up to the Battle of Gross & Klein Badsdorf.
Not content with completing the battalion for the game The son & heir went a little crazy and completed a command stand as well. These two figures had been lurking nearly complete for a while. Finishing touches applied; basing complete; show me the way to the French and glory! Gulp – these guys are a bit ‘focussed’! 8O)
