The start to my Editions Brokaw collection for the War if Spanish Succession came from a collection which I accepted in trade for another painted collection about a year ago.  It’s taken a while to decide where no am going with this in terms of rules etc.

The Partisan historical volume had surprises for me tonight.  In my crazy lifestyle this is a book I picked up from Dennis at On Military Matters perhaps ten years ago but have never read cover to cover.  It definitely falls into the category of I’m really glad I bought that….

Thinking I had only British and French armies in my collection, I was surprised to find some 7 battalions of what I thought were French in dark blue uniforms….  Thanks to Mr. Grant I see they are actually Prussian – who knew!

Anyway – here they are – in their restored, flocked glory.

I’m afraid seven battalions isn’t enough if stand alone but I believe they fought with the Allies so could be a supplementary force in the way that this war made hodgepodge battalions the norm.
Black Powder WSS supplement for this one.
