I have a question. I searched the boards and could not find an answer

I thought I remembered Calpe making a lot more Prussians for the 1813 period on than I see on the site. I thought there were fusiliers (with command), Reservists, grenadiers, jagers, etc.

I seem to only see line musketeers. Are the others available?

You have to go to the "Calpe Veterans" site from the main page.

Got 4 batallions of Landwehr for Christmas from the veterans site. Top draw figures and the first unit of 33 figures needed literally no cleaning up before undercoating. This is a huge plus for me.

Also a good tip when ordering is to email Peter if you want say a 32 figure unit, tell him what command figures you want and he will give a good mix for the remaining rank and file. Saves picking through all of the single figure codes. He'll do a paypal invoice for you.

Great service all round.

Second vote for Peter and Calpe.
I have 1200+ Prussians painted up, excellent figures to paint.

wrgmr1, you and your gaming group are able to game with that many figures?

Perfect. Thank you.

18th Century Guy,

I painted up Von Bulows entire IV corps for our Waterloo game in 2015.
We've played this game twice now. I've used most of them for Dennewitz etc. So yes we play big games using Shako 2 Rules.

The whole range is indeed still available in their "Veterans site". Calpe also has great Saxons and I can strongly recommend their mail order service, speeedy and accurate delivery. I've always had excellent service frrom them, If I hadn't bought so many Foundry Prussians, I sure would buy some extra Calpe's now
