|Tried to mix things up a bit by using a different pose for the front rank in this unit.|
The castings are lovely, as these Perry-sculpted Foundry figures are just excellent. I used some different poses in this unit to provide a bit of variety on the table. As before, there are 20 castings in the main body of the unit, and four castings on individual bases which can be set out to represent the deployment of skirmishers. The flag is from GMB.
|Commanders in the middle - flag from GMB.|
|Skirmish troops have their great coats on - once more, provides a bit of variety in the look of the formation on the table.|
And while I was finishing off the infantry unit, I also added some ground work to the previously-painted Dragoons.

|Split into two small units here, but could be combined into one unit without much trouble.|
|Another view of the Dragoons - not as glamorous as some of the other cavalry arms, but critical for the Prussian forces!|
So this bonkers Franco-Prussian War in 28mm for Black Powder is starting - just barely, but starting - to come together. Five infantry units, one cavalry unit (or two, if I want to have two small ones), and an artillery piece...it almost - almost - can be squeezed into enough of a force that can be occupy the gang for a Thursday night game. I think one or two more Prussian units of some sort should do the trick. It may take a little while to get to them - some 30k stuff is heading for the painting table for now - but I'll do my best to keep on track toward a game sometime this year!
