Following up on my recent recollections of Regensburg and Bavaria, it may be of little surprise that the second battalion of Bavarian Regiment Preysing would be following along soon. Today, the second battalion musters off the workbench to join its sister battalion. Preysing IR is now complete.
Also of no surprise is that Battalion 2 is composed of Lancashire Games' figures just like the first battalion. Musketeers are Lancashire Games with an Eureka mounted officer. As I noted before, these Lancashire ersatz Bavarians (recruited from good Austrian stock) are superb figures and quite fun to paint. Perhaps, it is unfortunate that the Bavarians only fielded 17 battalions of infantry during the Seven Years War. Given the propensity to fight SYW battles using Honours of War at the scale of one BMU equates to one regiment, only eight such units will be needed to field the entire Bavarian infantry. Still, with only three BMUs finished, still plenty of work remains before the collection reaches this point.
Preysing Battalion 2 may be that last to be seen on the SYW front for now. Other projects are vying for attention and pushing further SYW expansion down into the queue. Foremost is an interest in adding to the 1859 project where several regiments are in work.
With thoughts of fighting the 1859 Battle of San Martino, units destined for this war are muscling their way into the production line. Following a regiment of French infantry seen a week ago, the next of these reinforcements will be a 48 figure Sardinian infantry regiment. Expect another French regiment soon.
