More Prussians - IR23

This morning I have just finished basing the latest unit of Prussians...
IR23 - Regiment Forcade.
I have shown them with the 1740s flags, which I much prefer, rather than the plainer versions carried in the 1750s/SYW.





Figures painted by Dave Jarvis, flags by Mark Allen.

Talking of flags, I have today received from Mark the first two flags for an additional contingent that is to be depicted in the collection. You see, this past couple of weeks, I've had some time off. Time to consider the "ultimate orbat" for this project. And, yes, it's grown arms and legs!

I also received a box a few days ago...



...and have been working on some of the contents, whilst listening to the gripping first Ashes Test Match on the radio. The ideal way to relax on a summer's afternoon...

PS: I love that Forcade regiment. I might have to add one to my army too.

Great unit Phil and love the earlier flags.

I was also listening to the Test - but not sure it was as much of an enjoyable relaxing experience as you have had!

Another very nice unit. This ensemble looks particularly effective against the white background. Glad you enjoyed a very good England cricket result for a change :-)
