I've completed my &YW armies. I know everybody says that and then buys shed loads more but look at what i've got and then say I need more.
This all started with a 10mm display game at Battlegrouhd show in 2018. Stafoord Wargamers had recreated Blenheim in 10mm and it looked fab. Matt decided to start a 10mm 7YW collection of Prussians and Austrians. Always up for something new I decided to join him. I initially started with Brunswickers but realised that they fought in the West against the French and not in the East against the Austrians - nowt like a good bit of research. Luckily the Brunsickers were generally dressed like Prussians so were an easy change to Prussians.
Once I'd moved to the Eastern front I decided to build the armies from the 1st major lind battle of the war, the Battle of Lobositz. Nominally a Prussian victory as the Austrians retired but in reality the Austrians built a roadblock to stop Frederick and when they had done that, and given him a bloody nose, they retired.
It's a pretty big battle with 28,500 Prussians vs 35,000 Austrians. The Kronoscaf website is a fantastic resource. So I bought the figures from Pendraken, there are some Old Glory infantry (don't like them), and artillery (they are great and they are cheap and you don't need to buy the limber like the Pendraken ones). The Pendraken stuff is amazing, massive fan.
Today I finished the last units
