This unit is based on the historical von Kleist Freikorps that served with distinction in Fredrick's army. For my imagiNation, I just have added white cuffs and a different flag (using the famed "beer hops" device so beloved in the Konigreich)...The mounted castings are RSM (von Kleist dragoons) and I painted up some RSM foot jagers as well and hopefully in the near future I can add a light gun.
The marvelous SYW Project site (which I might mention I support with my financial contributions as well....) has Kliest's officers in tricorn, so I used that reference as an excuse to dig out some of my extra RSM command figures and press them into service.
The foot jagers are still to be finished, but I'm on a roll inspired by so many great gaming blogs out there! ...and to be frank, today was one of those days where nothing on the home front seemed to be going right, and just a moment of late night escape into the wondrous and noble world of miniatures has turned a rough day into a pretty good one....HUZZA!
(...and thanks to everyone for reading...apparently I have had 24,000+...!?... visits to my blog...all of you are much, much appreciated!)
