We have been fighting a 7YW campaign circa 1756 for the last year. As of now it is just the Prussians against the Austrians, The Austrian allies "join" the fight in 1757. The first battle was fought outside Prague near the village of Sterboholy.

Nice. Infantry in three ranks, you don't often see that depicted with SYW units.

Really nice collection of figures! Terrific AAR. Thanks for posting.

Thanks clibinarium & Ragbones. The figure scale of 1 to 10 allows for more representative units.
Cheers from Texas

Great looking battle – and one heck of a lot of troops!

Thanks Frederick!
I really love fighting campaigns…the best way to get "uneven" battles without someone complaining about the "odds". Next battle finds Prince Charles taking on Keith at 3 to 2 odds. But Keith has more cavalry!

YES Chris! They are 6mm ADLER MINIATURES! They look great…especially as 3 deep lines!

My favorite is the Garde du Korps Kurassier regiment….they have never failed me!
