When the battle of Zorndorf took up residence on the gaming table in the autumn of 2018, the Prussian OB called for a pair of Prussian howitzer batteries. Well, I did not have any howitzers in the collection so a substitution was made of 12 pounder Prussian guns. I made a note that howitzers may be needed in future SYW games. Sensing the next Prussian vs Russian battle may require Prussian howitzers, I placed an order with Eureka to right this wrong.
Almost exactly one year later, time to correct this oversight. Not exactly. The first two guns dug out of The Lead Pile were Austrian. Surely I will need Austrian howitzers at some time too, right? Why not push a pair of Austrian howitzers into the painting queue? Prussian howitzers can follow a bit later. Prussian howitzers next. Yes, that is what I will do.
Off the painting desk today is a pair of Austrian howitzers. Guns and crew are from Eureka Miniatures. Now, where are those Prussian guns?
