Written many times if I was just starting 1/72's are the way to go.

Tom,
1/72's are the way to go and yours look great. I am impressed with your flag, I personally cut them off and us a wire pole and paper flags from "Warflag".

These are nice, but for my money the HaT Prussian infantry are a better choice. Far better poses "for wargaming" IMHO

And the landwehr are almost with us.

What is needed now is a decent set of artillery, and a set of horse guns at that.

And more cavalry


But yes, plastic 1/72 is a great scale, but then I am biased

Thanks for you answers :-)

@Col Scott ret
I prefer to paint the flags, but the flags from warflag also okay and a good way :-)

@Marc at work
Yes you have right; we missing a lot of better units for the prussians. But Hät is working on Landwehr.

But I like the miniatures from this manufacture Waterloo1815, but the negative on this set is, that you get 4 Officers on horse, 4 flagbearers and drummers :-(

Very nice! I am working on what I call my "toy soldier" project,1/72 Napoleonics,basic painted and gloss varnish,plain green wooden bases.

Very nice, but infuriating that the standard is mounted sideways on the staff. If you are strictly plastic, I think it's covered. Not a lot of great sets out there. If you are willing to go for 1/72 metal, go Art Miniaturen. Leave it to some German guys in a garage to produce fantastic Prussians. The hussars have separate pelisses, sabertache. Some are separate upper bodies, all different horse poses. Fantastic, and the best artillery in any scale. No kidding.

Great work!

I have a soft spot for the Zvezda artillery sets, but some of the Europeans are making lovely crew
