Seven Years War - 15mm

I've been really enjoying playing these 15mm SYW games again! I had built 15mm SYW Prussian and Austrian armies years ago for "Koenig Krieg", but in the last few years they have just been collecting dust on the shelf in their cigar boxes! I finally found time to set up two games and take some pictures. The pics are mostly from the initial setup of one of the games. We have played two games with the first game being a draw and the second a minor Austrian tactical victory. We had a great time each game!

I'm currently using a home brewed regimental version of DBX (heavily modified) for the rules, which gives a quick and easy game. If I can find time I'll type up the rules and post.

My painting lately has been all 28mm, with ACW, War of the Roses, and Afrika Korps (and even some fantasy for Kings of War). It was nice to revisit the little guys again. I doubt I'll paint the SYW in 28mm, so I just might have to pick up some 18mm Blue Moon SYW to add some more troops to my collection. You never know...there might be a SYW campaign in the future! Anyway, here are some pics from the game:
