Converged Grenadiers 13/26 von Finck: 'Mit der rechten Hand ans Gewehr!'



The elite 4-company 13/26 von Finck Converged Grenadier Battalion, major F. A von Finck commanding. This unit was painted for me by Leuthen Studios with figures by Black Hussar Miniatures.

The Battalion fought at Prague, Kolin and Rossbach. It was captured at Maxen in 1759 and had to be reconstituted with 4 companies from 4 different regiments.

IR13 von Itzenplitz, the so-called "Donner und Blitzen" regiment, provided 2 companies to the "coverged" Battalion. Using "Maurice" rules, I'm using 2 (of 4) bases for each of the musketeer regiments providing grenadiers.

The result is a very colourful battalion which should do well on the miniature battlefield!
