There are three troop types of the Seven Years War which still need to be covered:
1. Prussian fusiliers wearing the typical fusilier cap of the Seven Years War which was still worn by the time of the American Revolutionary War. Filing down and converting Prussian grenadier caps is not really an option if the number of troops required is large.
2. Russian grenadiers wearing the typical grenadier cap with neck flap. Again, this troop type is missing in 40 mm.
3. Artillery of the Seven Years War has not been covered yet, either. The 40 mm French artillerymen of the Rossbach range are without lapels and turnbacks. They are not suitable as Prussian, Austrian, British, or Hessian or Hanovarian gunners.
I had completely forgotten about this post of mine which is now over 18 months old.
There are no Prussian fusiliers yet?
How about a mould with separate heads of Prussian fusiliers, Russian grenadiers, Swedish Grenadiers, British grenadiers, British light infantry, British rangers, Highlanders, British light dragoon caps, French pokalem dragoon caps, and British Tarleton helmes to be used for conversions of existing Prince August 40mm figures. The separate heads only need a cylindrical pin which can be inserted into a hole drilled into the neck of the figure to be converted.
As Iam new to this lark and I do not know where to post this,would any bodyhave a decent picture or painting instruutions for a 1757 Prussian Cuirassier the picture on the box of the moulds dose not give enough detail . It would be great if Prince August would include a good picture of the finished product and also colour flags instead of black and white.
