Prussian Landwehr Cavalry 1813.

Art Miniaturen 20mm figures painted as the 1st Silesian (yellow facings) and the 1st Pomeranian (white facings) circa 1813.
Next up will be the 2nd Pomeranian Landwehr cavalry which will be in grey, white collar and cuffs and red shoulder tabs. All in preparation for Dennewitz in June 2020.

 cross on the covered shako. Yellow cuffs and white shoulder tabs.
White over yellow pennant.

1st Pomeranian Landwehr Cavalry without the painted
white cross (just couldn't be bothered!)Red stripe on the
upper edge of the collar.  Should have been on the lower edge....sorry!
White over black pennant.

Wurttemberg foot artillery 12lb

Latest addition completed courtesy of Franznap and Art Miniaturen. I choose to use the Art Miniaturen guns, horses, limber and caisson so I could use the Art Miniaturen traces which look so authentic. The riders are Franznap and while they are a tad small compared to the artillery horses, this is barely noticeable.
Artillery gunners are all Franznap as are the two command bases. The third command base (Div commander) is a mixture of Hagen and Art Miniaturen.

If this had been horse artillery I would have chosen Franznap across all the elements as the limber/caisson is different.

The Franznap artillery gunners have an excellent range of poses.

Ready for Dennewitz in June.

French Garde d'Honneur in 1/72 due out from Art Miniaturen.

Great news from Art M, who will be releasing new Garde d'Honneur figures including command at the end of January. Relieved to put the knife away and that I will no longer need to switch the shako tassels from right to left! Hope to get two regiments. (32 figures)

 These will accompany the French hussars and Saxon hussars.
