Another battalion added to my Prussian army:

Very nice. I like 1/72 as well and can't come close to your ability. Well done sir.

Very smartly done.
One thing odd but only to me is they are not wearing their thin plumes, I started with Minifig 2s and that's how they made them so all my fusileers have plumes.

@14Bore, as far as I know, their regular infantry had no plumes. The grenadiers (that later became Guard) and the Guard Fusiliers did have plumes, but probably didn't use them on the field.

Nevertheless, I plan on adding plumes to those Guard units, once I get to work on them, to make them readily distinguishable on the table.

Nicely done again. Have you any plans to try the Revell set?

Matuis you seem to be correct that my Fusileer of nearly 40 years are wrong, but only defence is Minifigs made them and had had little to know any different. Hadn't thought about it for decades as moved on but you know some give flags to Reserve regiments or Landwehr that didn't have them ( I don't) but would break their hearts to take their plumes away.
My grenadiers all have thick plumes, my Normal Battalion with white

the plumes become mood – there on campaign the shako cover was worn, if you choose to show Prussian units with plumes you have to use miniatures depicting parade dress.

40 year old Milifig 2 Prussian Fusileers
No where near as good as yours
