I was up to the wee hours working out how many packets of which type of figure I would need to build my first two battalions of foot and first squadron of cavalry. I have settled for the following - that should give me enough to get started:
23V Prussian Grenadiers Advancing (Mitre Cap) x2 £4.00
24V Prussian Musketeers Advancing (Tricorn) x12 £24.00
29V Prussian Musketeer Command x5 £10.00
21VC Prussian Cuirassiers (Tricorn) x8 £16.00
26VC Prussian Cuirassiers Command x1 £2.00
Payment went off on the post this morning, I better get on with my uniform research before they arrive. It is a good job I already own both volumes of Funcken and one Osprey on the SYW and I have ordered a further three Ospreys:
Russian Army of the Seven Years War
The Austrian Army 1740-80 - Cavalry
The Austrian Army 1740-80 - Infantry
From the above books I think you can guess which armies will follow my Prussians.
When my figures arrive I will add my first photos and figure review.
