Your last one of the Silesians got me thinking to repaint my GduC done 41 years ago some while on the Langley AFB flight line. If I do hope they come out 1/2 as good

Clever conversions. You have brought these old Hat figures to life with your vibrant painting style.

What is next for the Prussian army?

@Lets party with Cossacks,

I'm currently expanding my landwehr infantry, then I'll go back to the Wurttembergers to work on their artillery, then back to Prussians to add more line infantry or perhaps grenadiers to their ranks, and so on.

I tend to intercalete different types of units/armies in my paint projects, to keep motivation running. I'd probably get really bored if I was to, say, work on 10 Prussian line infantry battalions in a row.

I can see how that works. I too struggle with motivation where there is unrelenting sameness – always an issue with Napoleonics!

Have you painted any of the Strelets Prussians? I know the Hat sculpting on their Prussians is excellent, but the new Strelets are in my view at least equal if not better.

I haven't worked on any strelets prussians, but I have purchased some of their newer sets, such as highlander and bavarian infantry, and can atest that their new level of sculpting is indeed very good: Natural human proportions (opposed to their old bubble-head designs) and crispy detail.

For what pictures I could check online (such as on PSR), their prussians are also very good, but as you said, HaT's prussian infantry sets are excellent, and I happen to have loads of them, so probably won't work on similar sets from Strelets.
