Those units in Italics when ordered and painted will complete this order of battle. As you can read, completion is not far off and one final order would do it.

The original composition was meant to offer a nice balance of light troops for le petite guerre. However, as our campaign commenced, I thought it prudent to add more weight to the list by adding Cuirassiers, Grenadiers and more German Line. As we move toward the third phase of the Campaign in Bohemia, the events after the battle of Kolin will require need of these troop types.

Nice - love those grenadiers! Shades of Hochkirch and one in the eye for Old Fritz! :-)

Hi David...Old Glory were able to repack a bag of grenadiers so I could have 50% each German and Hungarian. Now, every line battalion has a grenadier company. Very nice people.
