The last step to completing the Prussian infantry are the grenadiers. These are only twelve elements but represent the combined grenadier companies of 24 regiments. All details were noted on card to include the grenadier cap with cloth and trim.
As I painted, I methodically checked off each completed section and moved onto next. In three short sessions, the twelve elements were repainted. The final step, black lining, put the finish touch to these elite units.
The grenadier battalions did not carry standards with one exception, the 3rd battalion, 15th Regiment (Garde). Their assault of the church at Leuthen has been immortalized by C. Röchling’s painting.
Next task are the Prussian Hussars.
