Progress on the Bavarian army this weekend, with a couple of milestones reached.
The most recent batch of infantry finished means that I have a complete brigade for big battles games.
The Bavarian army used a very regular brigade organization. Each infantry brigade had 2x regiments of Fusiliers, each of 2x battalions plus a battalion of Light infantry. Depending upon the campaign a division would have 2 or 3 brigades plus a brigade of cavalry and 3 or 4 artillery batteries.
This brigade is made entirely with Hät Figures. Each battalion has flank companies as well. The mounted commander is a head swap with a mounted French officer that the nice folks at Hät included in with my order. I only had to trim the very French epaulettes off and switch heads. I added the white plume to make him look like the fellow on the cover of The Bavarian Army by Peter Bunde, Markus Gartner and Markus Stein.
I also finished the Perry Miniatures limber for the artillery park.
The lead horse has obviously found some interesting flowers to eat.
Great looking Bavarian brigade! I have been tempted by the Hat plastic Bavarians and you've done a lovely job on them!ReplyDelete
They are good value for the moneyDelete
Codsticker commented (and my fat finger deleted instead of approved): "Very nice work. Those Perry figures are great- I love the casual at rest poses of the riders."ReplyDelete
Oh, wow, these are coming together quite nicely. I do like the commander conversion.ReplyDelete
They look wonderful! The limber almost 'steals the show', it looks so good and those riders have such character.ReplyDelete
