Napoleonic Prussian Army

Hello all!

Since first starting this blog I intended to one day photograph my Napoleonic collection (which has gone through several rule sets and a few re-basing's over the years).  I have several armies, but first up is the Prussians, which is my second smallest army.  I have a Bavarian army (smallest), Austrian army (large), and French army (large) in addition to the Prussians.

My Prussian army is a healthy mix of Perry Miniatures, Warlord Games and Calpe Miniatures.  I've generally stuck to mostly Front Rank Figurines since they have the best range for my other forces at the time I collected everything, however Perry Miniatures has really filled out their Napoleonic line and if I was to do it all over again there would be a lot more Perry Miniatures in my forces.

As one would expect, there is a health chunk of Landwehr represented in the army.  So enough talking ... pictures are worth a thousand words ...

And that's it ... all my Prussians.  Next up will be my French and I'll follow on with my Austrians and Bavarians.

  2. Very good looking force! Prussians are my favorite later Napoleonic Army. I am slowly building the III Korps of the Army of the North, 1813.

  3. I love these. The uniformity of the basing and style is just great to see. Top marks.
