Hi Matt


The French also work well. Historically all the German units in Neuenstein  were dressed in the french style. Also considering the wear and tear on the original uniforms it is logical that French uniforms would be used. 


p.s. It is best to use 1812 French 


pps which flags do you think would be good proxies for the german brigade from baccus?

Hello Matt!

According to Knotel Baden seems to have retained their helmets (after they switched from bicornes) for the duration of the Napoleonic Wars. If that is correct then in 6mm either Wurttemberg or Bavaria would do. If I was to pick one I would choose Wurttemberg simply because I would build both a Wurttemberg and Baden force at the same time. Saving the Bavarians for well Bavarians.

Best regards,
