Seven Years War
Austrians and their Allies
One of my hobbies is wargaming. Though I seem to collect figures more than actually game. Currently I'm working on a collection from the Seven Years War (1756-1763), to use with Charles Grant's rules. Things are slowly coming together and below are a few shots of what I have to date.
The figures are all 18mm Eureka.
The Prussians and Allies are HERE
Units are chosen by the colours of their facings or on the appearance of their flags. I'm making no attempt to build a historical order of battle and, as with the assignment of grenadier companies to their battalions and their carrying colours, will bend the "historical rules" for my own purposes. Further additions will include troops from France, Russia, Austria-Hungary and the Holy Roman Empire.
Planned totals- 21 Infantry battalions, 4 grenadier battalions, 2 light battalions- 1379 figures.
8 Heavy cavalry and 2 light cavalry squadrons- 278 figures.
8 batteries- 88 figures, 16 guns and limbers.
49 staff and escorts.
