Perhaps the title is a little overblown but the soon to be revealed event has not happened a lot recently. von Peter himself has completed a battalion! And that battalion was totally and all his own work!!! Enough of the applause. We don’t have all day you know! 😃
The battalion in question is the Saxon 1/Prinz Frederich August Infantry Regiment which was part of Generalmajor Mellentin’s 2nd Brigade … in Generallieutenant Lecoq’s 24th (Saxon) Division … which in turn constituted part of General de Division Reynier’s VII Corps in 1813. Calpe Miniatures of course with flag from GMB Designs.
The new boys can be seen in the image below being bravely backed up by the other now veteran … and somewhat wary! … Saxon battalions under the stewardship of von Peter himself.
Next up is the six figure Saxon Jaeger company. There were thoughts of starting a Prussian battalion but who can resist a mere six figure unit? And they’ve even been started. All six of them! Well they’ve been cleaned up … an extremely minor undertaking … and undercoated. But still technically they are actually started! von Peter himself wonders how long they will take especially given all the other distractions on the painting table.
Why wast an opportunity?
It is no small matter to set the scene for a photo shoot so only a foolish man would not take the opportunity to snap a few more photos. There are still several units that require up to date or improved images for placement on the slowly developing web page of von Peter himself which runs in parallel this here blog.
The lucky units this time around were the Austrian Deutsch-Banat Grenz Regiment and a commander. You can see these on the Napoleonic Austrian page of the aforementioned website.
Please remember that one can partake of the advanced technology provided at no extra charge by clicking on the images to see larger and clearer versions.
Until we meet again …
