It was an old ambition to collect and paint the most obscure and colourful troops of the Napoleonic wars, so, it was a joy when Alan Perry started to produce the Confederation of the Rhine contingents, along with the largest nation of the Bund, Bavaria. It is an enormous task, since I also have to tackle ongoing, never ending commissions, plus for my collection, several French battalions and squadrons , British foot, and my beloved Prussian infantry and cavalry. Here is the first part of the ongoing saga in the dwarf states, (plus a large Bavarian army, hopefully), The Anhalt contingent, Troops were provided by three different small states: Alhalt-Dessau, Anhalt-Köthen and Anhalt-Bernburg. Next to come are the second battalion, the Lippe brigade.
All the details came from the magnificent Peter Bunde plates https://www.brigade-uniform-tafeln.de/.
Comment are always welcome.
Beautiful work. The Confederation is also on my list to do!
Wonderful figures, wonderfully painted. I like these little states too and it’s always interesting to see their uniforms brought to the fore like this.
Thank you Martin. This is the “start” of a project ,that will cover most, if not all, the minor German states,and hopefully,some large ones
