increasing regiments (II): Prussian 49th

This is the second Prussian regiment I raised from 24 to 36 figures. The figures are casted with Prince August moulds from the serie "Battle of Rossbach" - my favourite production serie. The semi-flat figures are marvellous and easy and fast to paint.
I tried to dramatize the pictures a little bit blurring some fumes into the foreground :-)

increasing regiments (I): Prussian 1st Regiment






Alraedy a while I am sitting on raising our regiments from 24 figures by regiment to 36. This number is much more useful in wargames and looks also more realistic. As I saw, most of the bloggers playing in 30mm do the same: almost there are regiments with at least 36 figures to see.

This shown Prussian regiment is an old one, done with moulds from Nürnberger Meterzinn. Some of the figures seem to be 40 years old... In the meantime I found a very talented seller of NMZ figures, who is also selling in Ebay, Hans. I asked him to cast me 20 pieces of the advancing musketeer and he did them for a very good price in excellent quality.
If you are also interested, just send him a mail: H.-J.Richter (at) T-Online.de

Honestly, this are the last figures I painted Meisterzinn; the semi-flat figures don´t really match with high-quality figures of Matthias-Manske or Sash&Saber.
But for completing an old regiment, it was a nice intermezzo.



oops, there is a Prince August grenadeer among them..


the flag is done in photoshop and printed on paper
