Regiment of the Day
Today we have the magnificent Prussian IR 33 - von Alvensleben, which fought as part of von Schmettau's 3rd Division at Jena Auerstadt.
|Another quick update for Regiment of the Day - IR 33 Alvenslevel takes to the field ! Figures by AB. This unit has distinctive white facings, and a white pom-pom with a red dot at the top.|
In keeping with my other Prussian infantry of this period, I have given them different trouser colours - in this case Vallejo medium grey.
|The flag for this unit is another one of those rare Prussian flags that has a solid background colour. In this case, I have used regular Prussian blue for the flag. Compare this flag to IR 35, Prinz Heinrich - which is the same design, but with a slightly lighter shade of blue.|
This regiment here also has their own personal skirmisher stand .. just in case the scenario allows for it. Need to add a battalion gun models for this one - another project for the never ending queue.
|IR 33 Alvensleben marches through the fields to join the rest of the Division. The Feldwebel brings up the rear of the column, keeping those commoner misfits in line.|
Note the long queue'd hair, with period specific powder to lighten those locks !
More Prussians tomorrow.
