Prussia: new 6 pdr-battery

Also the Prussian artillery undergoes a process of modernization. After taking away the old Meisterzinn-cannons with the semi-flat figures of Prince August, I ordered 3 6-pdr guns with staff at Matthias Manske and 2 3-pdr guns at Sash&Saber, painted them following the marvellous drawings of Christian Rogge (http://crogges7ywarmies.blogspot.de/).
Now, the relative strength of the Prussian artillery is equal to the Russian and the French.

On the pictures some exercises in a thundery environment - the warfare at the end of autumn...

the brave Sash&Saber guys with their 3-pdr battalion gun.

The officer is taken from the Prince August collection

Fertigmachen, bereit,....!

    1. Grazie, Fabrizio! Piacere di sentirti - spero che in futuro potremo comunicare in piu!

  7. Stellar artillery, Monseigneur. Nice figures & guns, well painted, well based and photographed. Nice to see a few PA's survived as well.


    1. I know you as a severe, but fair critic - so I am very grateful for your words. Thank you. I share with you the addiction for PA figures and also save them by trying to integrate them in the new 3D-figures.
      Your tip with the Peipp-Amazons was great - the look really marvellous. Honestly, I am thinking to buy some and let them participate at the SYW - just for folkloristic reasons!
