Always collect two opposed armies.

You should also try and squeeze in some Black Brunswickers and some of the delightful cornflower blue and purple Saxon cavalry which operated away from XII Corps against the French Army of the North.

I think this is a transliteration of "purpurrot" which I have usually seen translated as "crimson". Any of our native German speakers able to resolve this?

Words of wisdom.

I usually collect both armies as well.

League of Augsburg, ACW, 7YW(I'll end up doing multiple armies)

I want to do Crimea and FPW/APW but I hear the Crimea range is going to be revamped so I'll wait

Paint them any colour in the red/blue spectrum you like; the dying process was so hit and miss the Bavarians marched through Munich in the 1871 victory parade ion new uniforms described variously as Lilac or Violet  Cheesy
But he is right, technically.

Button colours were correct? Smiley I have to check my Saxons. I hope colours will be accepted by our uniform gurus.

Gentlemen

It's been a long without visiting this site, massive amount of work and other wargaming projects (including my own miniatures company) kept me quite busy, but lately I recovering my interest for the period and planning to resume my collection. After finishing some Saxon cavalry half painted under a coat of dust since 2015, not sure abour next move. Republican French would be the logical step but 1866 Austrians are very tempting...

My apologies if I left any unanswered post or private message!

1866 Austrians are indeed very tempting, as is the forthcoming(?) book on Koniggratz. Not sure whether it has been printed yet, although I did place a preorder with Ken Trotman many moons ago.
