The command group for the 25th Infantry Division (Grand Ducal Hessian) of the IX Korps has joined the German forces in France. Commanded by Prince Louis von Hesse, the heir to the Grand Ducal throne, it consisted of two infantry brigades (49th and 50th), a cavalry brigade, and an artillery force of six batteries, divided into two abteilungen (or battalions).

And the Hessian artillery force received the 2nd Light Battery as a reinforcement. It consists of three light 4-lb guns, each with two gunners, per Brom's organization.
The guns are substitutes using Ral Partha Colonial Krupp guns. They are close enough to what the Prussian guns looked like. The gunners are from Castaway Arts run by my friend from Down-Under Gerry Webb.
I'm now working on the command group from the French 2nd Loire Division and the 8th Heavy Artillery Battery. I'm hoping to get them completed before the end of the month.
