Prussian Workbench 4

I thought it was about time I showed the last of my Prussians I had been working on before I got side tracked by the Russians I bought. The figures are mostly AB as you will see.

This will be the 2nd battalion of my Prussian Guard.


I had the flag already secured on another battalion that has been changed to the West Prussian Grenadier battalion.

Amongst the Prussian infantry I picked up at Kirriemuir were these Jagers. With 1 Old Glory figure added



This is how the figures looked when I bought them. So all I had to do was tidy them up to look like my own style.


I also had put together a Pomeranian Landwher battalion.

These guys have been a lot of fun and are coming along nicely.

I love the variety of figures in the set and I also added in some Old Glory figures from their Landwher with shako pack that I converted.

Last up I had a Prussian Minifigs artillery battery that was short a crew and I had been searching for them for a good while . . .

Well I am glad to say that some kind soul on ebay was selling a full crew for my Prussian howitzer (converted from a British 1!) So now my Prussian foot battery is complete!!!
Now I can put this 1 to bed.

They are looking very nice.I'm sure they will give an ominous feel to the battlefield in their dark colors.
I'm looking forward to seeing your Russians.

Cheers

Paul,

Excellent painting yet again, although I've not painted AB line infantry I have built a couple of AB landwher battalions. The AB's are a joy good to paint.

I haven't done much painting myself recently to to a friends illness and death. Although I may post some pictures of my very basic hex river sections.

Keep up the good work, it cheers me up.

Ken

Hi Christopher,
I am getting stuck into the Russians at the moment. My wife has bought me some more AB Russian goodies for my Christmas.

Hi Ken,
I am really sorry to hear about the passing of your friend. I know this must be a hard time. I'm glad my figure painting cheers you up a little. Look forward to your future updates.

Thanks for your comments guys
Best regards
Paul

Paul,

thanks for the kind words. It was a bit of a shock - He was diagnosed with leukaemia about a couple months ago. His age (60) worked against him, unfortunately.

Regards

Ken

Hi Ken,
I remember reading on your blog you are also collection Fantassin figures. I have a couple of Fantassin French Command figures I won't use and could send you. I think they are Murat and some other chap? My brother and I have already planned all our French command bases for the future and they do not figure in them (pardon the pun). If you would like them you can contact me through my profile as it is open to email and I'll send them to you (free of charge).
Best regards
Paul
