Hi guys

Finished this 15mm Prussian DBN army on commission, lighting wasn't very good for pics, so they are a bit dark, figs are all AB, all comments welcome.

Agreed, very nice work GD! I had a tough time painting the Landwehr cap edging on Calpe miniatures! You've done it on 15mm AB!

GD are the figures with the white trim on the shakos actually 1805 Russians?

No they are Prussians. That's what the Prussian shako looks like without the oilskin cover on it.

They are the "reserve infantry in shako" figures from the AB Prussians 1813-15 range.

Dan, nice work!! Basing looks great to!

To follow up on Fredloan's question. I did know that the Prussian shako without a cover looked like this and think the white circle was a temporary recognition symbol, pre 1815. Or is it really a rosette here?

My real question though…..and forgive such a daft one….Seen in black and white, can you tell a Prussian from a Russian line infantryman? I recall the former very much copied from the latter, but, other than the oilskin shako cover……………….?

I think the shape of the shako was different, but the pom pom caused them to look similar when the oil skin was on.
