The French Infantry is in trouble. The Cossacks try to conquer the guns at the windmill, supported by Prussian Landwehr Infantry.
Posted Image

The Saxons surrender in panic.

Meanwhile the Prussian Reserve Infantry attacks from the Belzig Woods into the City. The powder is wet, so it's only clubbing with rmuskets ans pistols and stabbing with bayonets for both sides.

The French wagon can't leave. The Prussians are already there. Later it'll be captured by the Cossacks.

A lot more pictures. Including some inside shots of the Buildings are here at my flickr.

Hope you like it.

Wow, what an amazing entry! I love all the detail you put into each building such as the walls of the houses, and the action scenes are just brilliant. I loved the panic on the faces of the Saxon soldiers :pir-tongue: Good luck in the contest mate! :pir_laugh2:
If you cannot win the battle, win the war.

Great, a very huge and detailed MOC.  :thumbup:

How long have you build it?

Thanks, I build on it off, for over 3 weeks. but not daily and sometimes just for some minutes. I guess it must be about 50 hours, since I rebuild the buildings twice.

This is a great entry! :pir-classic: All the action is amazing. :pir-sweet:
I`m just wondering, on you'r bayonets, what did you use to clip them together?
Good luck.

It's simple, even if it look clumbsy in comparison to the u-clips, bit it works. Put these two together.

I guess it's the only way with original Lego parts and the musket, without altering them, or glue them together

The chaos in this MOC is very good. You really get the feeling of a big fight from it.
The buildings are also nice but it's mainly the minifigs that do the job. You must have put a lot of work in there! :pir-classic:

Building an entire town for you battle was an excellent idea. I love how all of those buildings look especially the on on the far right. Brilliant work.

Wow! Amazing! I'm no builder/designer or photograph expert, but you sure knew where you were going when you started building all these: that opening shot is truly something!

As a collector of Militaria, including Iron Crosses, I must say that I like your Prussians!
