FromSanderS: Prussia's Reserves! (226 Points)


As a welcome change to all the 80's Pulp (but don't be afraid, there's still one Pulp post coming up), I have painted up my last 2 battalion regiment of  Prussian reserve infantry. These are 1:72 HäT plastic figures and easy to paint up if incredibly boring. The command bases are mostly made up of HäT re-issues of the old Airfix Landwehr set. The flags were more or less my own interpretation.

There are 56 figures here, so 56 x 4 points would make me 224 points, I am guessing that's as close as I will get to a points-bomb this Challenge.

Cheers Sander

Morning Sander, good to see you dropping a little points grenade in as we appraoch theb end of this year's Challenge; Napoleonics too, harking back to it's origins. These two battalion of reserves look splendid and steadfast, if not the most interesting to paint. Are they painted as a particular regiment? 
226 for your tally (I like flags, strict historical acuracy or no)


  1. Good looking prussians and they always look better with a flag!
    Best Iain

  2. You have been a busy boy, haven't you?! Brilliant work on these Prussians, Sander.

    1. Well I painted most of these last week when we had a school holiday, they just needed finishing touches done.

  3. Mein Gott, zoo many Prussians! Gutt verk!

  4. Great work Sander! I already paint Napoleonics in 3mm, 6mm, 15mm and 28mm...yet no 1/72...might be something I have to try :)

  5. Nice mini bomb of 1/72, Sander! I was begining to think you had either forgotten or completed all your HO/OO stuff! ;)
