You know in 1812, you can have Prussians too?  Wink

I did WSS Prussians (real Pendraken).  I said I would never paint that much dark blue again, because  I'd undercoated black, and couldn't see where I'd painted.  Also the French are blue, so boring.

1812 the French have different flags, so
1) I'd need a load of command stands with Tricolours and
2) I like the lozenge.

If I was going to 1812 I'd do Russia, at some point I might do them for Fourth Coalition.

Remembered why I have so many Austrians - its due to the number of different types of uniform - Grenadier, Grenzer, Landwehr. Bought a little bit more of each than needed for my model list.

Two units of Grenadiers painted ((2nd not based). One Hungarian, one not.

No pics unless you ask - imagine like all the other Line I've painted, just in pointier hats, and a dab of colour on the back

By way of light relief (ie I am procrastinating painting the boots of the other 3 regiments of grenadiers)

Pendraken mdf 20x40 base - 1.5 grams.  A unit worth of 6 bases therefore weigh 9 grams
Bag of 12 strips (1 unit at 2 to the base) 4 grams. The bag they come in is 2g!  A unit is therefore 13g.

5 units = 60 bases
Infantry 20g
Bases    90g!
---------------
Total    110g
a shade under 2g a base

RUB tray holds 80 bases - which means if mdf weighs the same per cubic mm a weight of 120g
The walls are approx. 23mm high, call it a base depth for the cut outs and to make maths easy, and a total of just over 1240mm (31 40mm bases) long (inc central divider) = Approx 40g
Tray total 160g
80 bases x 2g = 160g

80 bases = 160 strips. =13.3 packs = 53g approx

of the 320g in a full tray of infantry troops, less than 1/6 is the figures!

7 trays in a 9L RUB
Max weight 2.24kg - will probably be less because infantry in close order was weighed - based artillery comes out at approx. 2g a base, skirmish will be less.

Company lists box weight as 900g

I can carry two armies for about 3kg

Movement trays are 20g (6 bases) and 14g  (4) with marker tiles.
33g a unit.

The last photo looks like a typical manoeuvre for Austrians under your command! Grin

The Germans have a Hungarian commander, the Hungarians have a German commander, they are ordered to advance forward, one veers right, the other veers left!

No, they are moving from column into line, this is part way through the Hungarians coming up level.
