7YW Prussian Braunschweig-Bevern Regiment


Some time ago I have shown you some of my British regiments for the Seven Years War. The figures I am using for those are actually Prussians from HäT's 7YW range. While basing the regiments for my British army, I based up two regiments, spray coated them and then found out I forgot to cut away the pompons on the tricorns. So there's was really nothing else to do about it but paint two Prussian regiments. And since I already have the 7th Regiment of the line in early and late Napoleonic garb, I thought I'd do one in true 7YW uniform as well.

The uniform references came from the Kronoskaf site and some German books I got hold of long ago which show colour plates on all, yes that's right: ALL, infantry and cavalry regiments of the Prussian 7YW's army.

These figures took ages to finish, but boy are they fine to look at. The pictures really do not do them justice even though I'm saying this myself.The flags are from warflag.com and are a really tight fit but they're ok in my mind.

Cheers Sander
