The first of the new figures is Hinton Hunt PN 64: General, looking through spy-glass, with the head of PN 61: General Gneisenau. He is to be Lieutenant General Hans East Karl, Graf von Zieten, the commander of the Prussian I Corps at Waterloo.
Next to him is my other example of a PN 65: ADC to a General, painted as a flugeladjutant von der Infanterie. I've modified him by twisting his head ever so slightly to the right. Also distinguishing him is his mount, which is a Hinton Hunt BNH 4: British Light Dragoon Horse as I've run out of Prussian general staff horses.
|Lt Gen von Zieten and his ADC arrive on the manoeuvre field in the nick of time|
and report to Blucher
|The plan for the manoeuvres is delivered by the Generaladjutant von der Infanterie.|
The orders from Berlin are that the Army is to practice the new Drill Regulations of 1812
|The Army marches into position....|
|while Blucher leads his commanders over the manoeuvre field.|
|At long last the Army is deployed - infantry in the centre, artillery and cavalry on the flanks.|
The 2nd Silesian Shutzen take up position as the advance guard.
|The Silesian riflemen and their supports shake out into skirmish formation.|
|Nearing the objective, the skirmishers fall back to the rear and flanks while the |
Neumark Landwehr and 1st Silesians deploy into line.
|The Guard and the 21st conduct a nifty passage of lines and charge, while the|
cavalry swoop in from the flanks to complete the victory.
|Gathering his commanders, Blucher declares the manoeuvres a complete success!|
I have an awful lot of painting to do if I'm to catch up with the French.
