Am I branching out from the 1859 conflict to creep into the Austro-Prussian or Franco-Prussians wars? Perhaps. Expansion into the other two conflicts would likely remain in the future since the 1859 project still has room to grow and many other projects vie for my painting time. When I do expand, the Austrians, Italians, and French can all do double duty in another theater. Economy!
The Prussians are a joy to paint. Simple uniforms that paint very quickly. I imagine being able to field a brigade of Germans quite rapidly for a small demonstration game. These sixteen foot soldiers mustered off the painting desk in rapid fashion. Then, Prussians were always good at quick mobilization. So rapidly mustered, they had no time to obtain their flag. Search is on for a suitable flag.
Once more progress is made on the 1859 front, thoughts will certainly return to fielding more Prussians.
