While painting the Grenadiers I had the happy thought to make a battalion of Reserve Infantry. Reservists were an important part of the Prussian scheme to rebuild after the debacle of 1806 and the limits to the size of the Army imposed by the treaty with Napoleon. The Reserves and Landwehr were a significant portion of the army from 1813 to 15, providing approximately one quarter to one third of the strength.
