You can read about the Battle of Lobositz here.
I should be working on Napoleonics, but I had these guys almost finished!!! (like in college when you ought to be working on calculus, but instead chose to write a history paper because it's more fun).
The Prussian left wing had the tough job of capturing the Lobosch Hill, a large, odd hill formation covered in orchards, stone walls, and infested with Austrian and Hungarian light infantry! More than likely, these infantry belonged to the Quadt Von Wickeradt Infantry Regiment (IR#9), who were themselves brigaded under Generals Wolfenbuttel and Hulsen. The other Regiments in the Brigade were Anhalt (IR#3), Braunschweig (IR#5), and Hulsen (IR#21).

I'm also thinking of bringing down some Horse and Musket troopers for Dave and I to play Neil Thomas' "1 Hour Wargames" a few times! (Dave - thoughts? Napoleonics? ACW? SYW? Your call!)
That's all for now. Hopefully I can get to painting tomorrow morning as well.
