Would be interested to know how it compares to the Pendraken ones. The Prussian are the simple A frame, but with four horses in pairs, whereas the Austrian have a limber chest and four horses in pairs. No drivers. I use the Pendraken artillery man with the outstretched arm to lead one of the horses.
I’m beginning to feel very relieved that I’m fighting the eastern campaigns. I’m sure Duffy mentions the grenadiers being issued with battalion guns because by the SYW they were no longer ad hoc formations, but were routinely paired when on campaign. Further, the Prussian Guard Grenadiers were a separate fully formed battalion so they did carry a standard.
Does anyone know the colour of the gun carriages the Brunswickers used for their battalion guns in the SYW? Apparently these were the only guns they fielded. I have relied Kronoscaf and Not by Appointment, but to no avail. Can anyone help please?
Perhaps one reason I don’t have a French army, it’s hard enough with the Austrians. Also why I don’t play Napoleonic - too many different troop types with too many different uniforms, too many formation changes and too many rules to remember to cope with all that - far too tiresome.
Used my noggin and found it on You Tube - Tales of Rubovia, about the king and queen of Rubovia and the queen’s pet dragon, Pongo. I also found a clip of another childhood favourite , Das singende, kllingende Baumchen. I still think the princess looked better as a brunette rather than a blonde.
My first encounter with the tricorn period was Disney’s Rob Roy. My second was a marionette TV programme in which a noble family living in a large country house had a pet dragon (rather a small one, so more like a dog). Anyone remember what it was called? I remember the matron of the house used to call the dragon by saying Pongalongalongo.
