Prussian National Contingent: General and Hussar escort


I am indebted to Alan for sending me this Prussian General. While I have found I have a Kennington Blucher figure, I think it is approriate to leave this general in command. His hussar escort may well at times find themselves in a converged squadron with the dragoons to undertake light cavalry duties. The lack of lights is the real weakness in this force - I do have four PN89 Lancers with separate (missing) arms. I have the same problem with 10-20 FN44 Guard Lancers, so if anyone has a stock of these limbs I would be glad to hear from you...

PN89 did not have a separate arm. Its a one piece I think

Hi Roy yes it's a mystery isn't it? It is a one piece figure but the four examples I have have sockets to recieve right arms. The bases of the castings are a bit rough and may well be home produced pirates, which might account for the arm socket.
