Prussian Fusileers.

Had to go for the CinemaScope shot to cram the complete regiment on ! 42 figures takes some getting in .

In three ranks they fit better , they are Spencer Smith 30mm figures and portray the Prussian Fusilier Regiment 'Von Kraytzen'.

The rank and file are converted grenadier figures and have had their mitres cut down and filed to make the shorter fusilier cap .

The rose coloured facings look rather pretty I think and will make them stand out on the wargaming table.

They march off to war past the new wargames rules book by C.S. Grant , a much needed expansion and explanation  of the original 1970s rule set. One of my problems at the moment is the number of new rule sets I have bought recently -very hard to sit down and read and absorb more than one at once !.

P.S. Thanks to Scott B. Lesch for pointing me to this reenactment group who portray the unit.
