"Lat se man kummen!"

A while ago two friends and I talked about starting some grand-scale Horse and Musket stuff. The conflicts me liked most where the SYW, WSS and Napoleonic. With all the plastic-goodness available we decided to play the "Befreiungskriege 1813-15". This wars give us a nice selection of colourfull troops.
I started with the IR3, the 2. East Prussian. This regiment will later enlarged to 24 man, but 16 is enough for the beginning. Two layers only (except fleshand trousers) to reduce painting time. Flag is a repainted GMB flag (highly recommended), miniatures are Perry plastics with some minor conversions, including an arm from the Frenchies box.


  1. Fantastic looking unit. The building in the background looks wonderful.

  2. Beautiful work, my friend! The shortcut has had no visible effect on the amazing quality!

    What rules will you be using?

  3. We want to try the Black Powder rules, but there are a lot of miniatures to paint until we´ll run the first game!
