Zorndorf Prussians - Roll Call

The Prussians are finished - Roll Call!!

 Here they are. Infantry, 19 units representing 38 battalions. Cavalry, 18 units representing 90 squadrons. Artillery, 12 guns representing the positional artillery.
 The infantry and guns. 4 Fusilier, 10 Musketeer, and 5 Grenadier units.
 A close up of the three new Fusilier standards including one (for the 49th, ex-pioneer) in shit brown, horrible. At least the black and white one (for the 46th) makes up for ir.
 Another new flag (for the 4th) in red and yellow - a belting combo.
 New dragoons and their standards - very pretty. The yellow ones are for the porcelain regiment, very pretty and wrong (new research showing them to be red).
But, the prize for best new flag goes to the 2nd Cuirassier - wow - red, yellow, white and green. This might be my favourite unit in the whole army.

The Russians are nearly finished too.

Impressive and scope and gorgeous in execution, James.

I rather like the brown flag, myself... I'd call it 'chocolate" brown, though! :-)

Shit brown...ahahha. We have to update the Kronoskaf color table! A really awesome job, and a real pleasure for the eyes.

Wow, that's how a prussian army of the SYW should look like. Congratulations for such an impressive army. I'm sure the Russians will look great, too.

Cheers
