Excellent additions to your collection!
I would like to find some more limbers, too!

Iíve finished two composite battalions of Prussian Grenadiers for my Seven Years War Project.  They are drawn from the following Musketeer Regiments- Anhalt- Dessau, Braunschweig, Von Kanitz and Braunschwei-Bevern.

The figures are mainly Blue Moon with a dash of Eureka.

If it is of interest there are some pics on my blog.

Nice.  And an excellent choice of units.  My motto is always "When in doubt, pot the pink."

Well, those Grenadier fellas certainly have a distinctive appearance.  Great-looking, too!

Well that's the SYW Prussians done.  The last artillery battery, Generals and Brigadiers completed today. 

The Army comprises of 4 units of hussars, 3 of Dragoons, 3 of Cuirassiers, nine battalions of line infantry, two of grenadiers infantry and three batteries of artillery.  Oh, and two units of light troops.

The Austrians are nearly there.  A unit of Dragoons should do it.

Well, sir, how dare you?!  Your Prussian army is done and you haven't provided us a photo of the full army on parade!  That is just wrong.  Frederick would have your head for such an oversight!  You must fix this sir, you must.
