|Left-hand view of the top three guns
|Bonus right hand view of Austrian guns, metal and plastic figures
|Bonus rear view of the Austrians
|The hotpotch of the final drawer
|Yet more Prussain combined grenadiers (probably casualties from the final game)
|British Cavalry with French Cavalry (probably) in their rear
|French or British Cavlry in front with Hanoverian Horse Grenadiers behind
|Nearly a whole Cavalry brigade, probably stored in the wrong place !
|My homemade limbers (- probably Prussian)
|Prussian pioneers/engineers, all conversions, probably for some specific scenario
|Commanders, all probably Austrian, plus of course Charles Stuart on the right !
|Prussain and allied Generals, Zeiten left, Marlborough (?- yep I know), a generic Hanoverian General, my converted Frederick II and of course Oliver Cormwell,. Note:We were very short of officers!
|Bonus rear view of the above, Zeiten's cloak was plasticine !
|British and Hanoverian generals
|A Hanoverian general and a coupe of Austrian generals (probably)

|Ansbach cuirassiers with two replacement figures,
|Austrian and Prussian cuirassiers looked very similar
|Rear view, note no backplate (and the substitutes!)
|Austrian Hussars - no idea which regiment
|Another view of the Hussars, with Asbach behind
|A mixed selection of figures
|The Prussian Garde du Coprs, with Vexillum style standard
|Metal Austrian Horse Grenadiers (Hinchcliffe iirc)
|Royal North British Dragoons - The Scots Greys (obligatory blurry pic)
|Prussian Cuirassier regiment, missing three bases
|Hanoverian Horse Grenadiers
|These really need dusting, their horses are black !
|Prussian Cuirassier standard
|French Cuirassier regiment, with shiny back and breast-plates !
|This is the complete regiment, just two squadrons strong !
|Rear view, for those that like this sort of thing
|Hussars with colbacks trimmed to mirlitons,
Many of the figures here had their heads replaced with grenadier heads (remember I have a huge surplus of these and some were re-fitted with drummers heads (also in the surplus category). Some hussars had their furry colback headgear cut down to represent mirlitons and had very thin paper 'streamers; added, the latter being lost many years ago.
I still have two more drawers of figures from my 7YW collection (sorry t bore you all still) to post about, cannon and ancillary stuff - probably some more cavalry too ! I've also comeacross very few generals, though I thought I had about twenty Hinchliffe ones - they'll be somewhere no doubt!
Thanks for taking the time to visit and as always your comments are always welcomed and truly appreciated!
