1806 Prussians Defeat in the Battle of Jena and Auerstedt

As a small side project i am painting a little force of 1-72/20mm 1806 Prussians in the battle of Jena and Auerstedt. The battle was fought between Napoleons French versus an Alliance of Prussia and Saxony. For more information please visit:

I got ten miniatures from Christian for free and after some reading this idea was born. Except the General on horse (Italeri) are all miniatures from HäT (Set 8083 1806 Prussian Musketeers). Sculpts are okay but it is very exhausting to cut all flashs!! Additionally painting faces and eyes is very challanging. So can not advise without reservation.

In order to cut a long story short, here is the picture of the current WIP status:

I cannot say where the house is from, but it looks very authentic and historical correct to me.

Comments, hints and critics are welcome too :)
