Here are some photos of my latest Calpe Prussians, started in November, just finished basing last night.

Kurmark Landwehr Cavalry
Silesian Landwehr Cavalry
Pomeranian Landwehr Cavalry
Silesian Hussars
23 Reserve Regiment of Infantry, I gave this unit flags even though they supposedly didn't carry any.

My Calpe project will be on hold for a time as I am working on a Vimy Ridge Project for the 100th anniversary. Approximately 100 figures left to paint for the Prussians. Once they are done I will take pictures of the whole army, just under 1000 figures.

Please feel free to comment.

Nice units, compliments. Calpe are always a joy to paint.

I just wish there were Calpe British!

Maybe, we could at least have some KGL? After all, they're German…

I wish Calpe would just expand the range in any direction, but can understand the pressures.

Post retirement, I am now part time…I walk out at the end of the day…actually often at lunchtime…no on call…no continuing responsibility….

But if only Calpe would do some of the stuff that will surely be lost with the loss of Westfalia. I only hope that Black Hussar will prove me wrong and take up the challenge.

For KGL check out the Brigade Miniatures folk from USA. I predicted disaster trying to import to UK. I was wrong. Working on their 95th and Chosen Men and wish I had known about 2nd Light KGL when I ordered

Just come across this and must add my congrats to those you've already received.

I think you're the only other person who has got as many Calpe Prussians as me.

Maybe even more.

Must paint my Hussars but back to painting Saxon cavalry from Westfalia/Black Hussar.

Thanks for sharing,

I am holding out for the release of the hussars from Black Hussar and then to work on them and the Prinz Clemens. Will be great to see yours.

I never noticed how good Calpe horses look. Never bought any cavalry from them yet.
