If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
Many thanks for the reply and the detailed explanation! I think things are a little clearer for me now amid the fog of war!
So you are a reenactor then? What period and type of soldier do you reenact? It must give you quite a good insight for when you are painting/modelling/wargaming with our little guys?!
I´m member of the 5th Prussian Brigade since many years and still have all my gear.
But for health reasons I can no longer manage the long marches with luggage, gun and equipment.
But in the 15 years that I have been actively involved, we have been able to locate many historical sources. From this we were able to gain a lot of information, some of which was completely new, about the uniform, the equipment and the implementation of battle formations of prussian units.
We have published much of this information on our website.
You can take a look there (www.5-preussische-brigade.de).
But most of the texts are written in German.
Interesting site, thanks Gerd!
My last great reenactment-event..: :worried:
Wow, that must have been an incredible event! Great pictures, very evocative! It’s a shame you can no longer march with your comrades.
If I may cut in here, thank you for the links. If text, my MSN software automatically asks me if I want to translate, so text translation is easy. Links to the Waterloo Re-enactment are just as is -authentic and amazing. Thank you everyone. So enjoyable with one or even two cups of coffee! - GC
