Prussia: Regiment Nr 49 Von Diericke

Honestly said, I am not really happy with the painting quality of this 3year old regiment - it was this winter just a renovation of the figures, which are from NMZ and Prince August. The heavy wargaming the past years and the oversea transportations were too much for them and they suffered. I did some cosmetical corrections and added the basements and new flags. Maybe, I´m no more interested in the figure quality of NMZ and PA, since I have the high-levelled figures from Manske and Sash+Saber.
But Prussia has to increase its infantry power till this summer, when the next battle will take place in Switzerland. 
The terrain will be built completely new and some artillery trains and furniture are planned.
We will have an equal army power between France (6 Inf.Reg., 4 Cav.Reg.),  Russia (6 Inf.Reg., 5 Cav.Reg.) and now Prussia with 6 Inf.Reg. and 4 Cav.Reg. 
Only Saxony is still underpowered, but maybe for 2012 the Kurfürst  will reorganize his army....


  1. The Reich Duke is very pleased to hear you have also found his realm. We simply must invest you into the Ancient and Honorable Order of the Tankard. Best regards...
