Some time ago I managed to get hold of a fair amount of HäT's new 7YW Prussian infantry sets. These are produced in their MAC format (a set each for Marching, Action and Command figures) and I will use them for re-creating the British contingent present at the Battle for Minden.
So why Minden? Well it's a battle where the Allied army consisted of both British, Hanoverian, Prussian and Hessian troops so a lot of different uniforms which I should be able to depict using these new figures. At the moment I have enough to re-create pretty much all the British Foot and most of the British Horse. This still leaves me some figures to put together some Prussian regiments. I always knew that I was going to present the regiments, painted for said project, one at a time and have always been pretty charmed by the way Ray over at Don't throw a 1, does this with his historical regiments.
So while I will not be supplying quite as much background information as Ray does, I will provide you a link to the pages of the stupendously good Kronoskaf website which specialises in the 7 Years War.
Without further ado I present you the first regiment I finished Stewart's 37th Regiment of Foot.
Now I suppose the real history buffs out there will be able to point out mistakes I made, the lace on the uniforms is one which I omitted on purpose, but I do not care! And no the musicians uniforms for this regiment were not reversed.
So here it is the first instalment of my Minden project I hope you enjoy the pictures.
