Hesse-Kassel at Hastenbeck.

Hesse-Kassel provided the second largest contingent of the forces assembled at Hastenbeck. These were five regiments of cavalry and dragoons plus 13 battalions of infantry.

Re-painting the figures as Hessian was no problem, as all were formerly Prussian musketeers; blue coat with red facings, white waistcoat and breeches. Most remained unchanged with a few requiring white or yellow regimental distinctions.  

The photos show the final stage with flags for the infantry and a general officer.

Brunswick are the last contingent and those will be posted tomorrow. I have also to place an order for grenadiers and general officers to complete the order of battle, plus some conversions you may find interesting.

Thanks Emilio.

I am pleased that this project is nearing its end. Tomorrow, I will post the information about Brunswick forces at Hastenbeck.

Old Glory 15's are great all-round figures for the SYW.

I received today, an order from Blue Moon of the UK. Great detailing and they mix well with OG15's.

The small number of British grenadiers and general officers I will order from them as this shipment took less than a week to arrive. That is great service.
