Germania Figuren produces a growing range of resin 1/72 figurines for the period of the Seven Years' War. The range already includes Hungarian fusiliers and grenadiers as well as Grenzer infantry, and Austrian cuirassiers, dragoons and artillery. Hungarian hussars will soon be added. The first Prussian and Russian units are available since the autumn of 2017.

...and explanations on these confusing Hessian armies
During the Seven Years' War, there were two distinct Hessian landgravates fielding units: Hessen-Darmstadt and Hessen-Kassel. Furthermore, these landgravates fought on different sides. Finally, to make things more complicated, there was a county of Hessen-Hanau which was part of the landgravate of Hessen-Kassel. The article Hessian Armies clarifies the situation and helps to distinguish these two armies.
