Prussian Grenadier Flutist, 25th Infantry Regiment--single figure
Item Number: SYW049
Period: Seven Years War, 1756-1763
Prussian Grenadier Flutist, 25th Infantry Regiment
We are pleased to present the latest release for our Seven Years War figures series, sets SYW046-057: Prussian Grenadiers of the 25th Infantry Regiment.
The 25th Infantry regiment was in constant combat from the outset of the Seven Years War, taking parts in the battles of Kolin, Breslau, Leuthen, the Siege of Olmutz, Zorndorf, and Kunersdorf. At Torgau in 1760, both battalions were almost totally destroyed, yet the reconstituted unit continued to see combat after this in several other battles. The Grenadiers of the 25th were combined with the Grenadiers of the 19th to form Grenadier Battalion 19/25. The 25th Infantry are truly one of the storied regiments of the Prussian Army of the Seven Years war and it was said of them at the Battle of Kolin "where on this bloody day, it showed the greatest courage with frequent attacks against the steepest heights...whereby it however lost one third of its officers, and yet did not fall back."
We have presented the figures in a variety of advancing poses such that a unit sized display can be created as shown in the image below. Or, if you prefer, you can limit it to the more "marching" type poses for a more non-combat display. We hope you enjoy this latest addition to the series!
Hand Painted figure for collectors from the Seven Years War product range.
Released in MAY 2019.
