For most of 2017 I have been painting SYW 28mm Russians (mostly Foundry) and here are 66 battalions.

Thanks Gents.
In the early SYW regiments were 3 battalions strong with 2 grenadier companies. But by taking away the third command base(with flags) these three battalion regiments can be turned into two battalion regiments for Zorndorf and later. Grenadier companies were sometimes converged and sometimes not. Here I ran out of space and converged them in the forth rank.
Next year – Grenadier regiments and Observation corps.

Well, I'm overwhelmed – amazing job and not only well painted and well based but great photos – you, sir, are the real deal! I tip my lace-topped tricorne to you

Well done with the flags, too.
