Today we have the Brigade Von Oswald, part of the advanced guard of the Northern (Prussian) army under Blucher.
Brigade Von Oswald grouped together some 2500 fusiliers into a single unit. This is a fairly rare example of a large formation of light infantry in Prussian service prior to the post-1806 reforms.
|Von Oswald's fusiliers hail from the Waschau (Warsaw) region .. and were quite an effective force on the battlefield. However, their numbers were too few on the day. to be a decisive factor.
|Figures by AB (18mm). Great variety of poses brings these figures to life. Its hard to do a bad paint job on ABs as well.
|4 bases of light infantry - with 4 skirmish markers. Unusual to have massed skirmishers for Prussian units of this period, but this unit is a rare case where the best light troops were grouped together to form part of the advanced guard.
