The Bremen battalion is the next unit from Hanover's contingents at Quatre Bras, as part of Kielmansegge's brigade. Originally a light battalion, it had been reclassified in 1815 as a 'field' battalion. This meant a snappy uniform of a red coat...to which the unit added the black wings of a light battalion. The unit also kept the black backpack leather and the signature blue pants.
I really like the NCO figures in these packs, lots of character.
The red, blue and black are from craft paints, I did wash a very light coat of brown stain over the figures before adding the white straps but after adding the yellow sashes. The yellow, silver and the white are from artist tube acrylics. The gunmetal and brass are vallejo colors. I followed my basing plan by adding white glue and sand to the bases, then used the railroad dark earth stain. A little flock and they are ready to roll into battle.
Next up will be the York Light battalion and the Luneberg Light battalion. Those units will complete the foot of Kielmansegge's Brigade. Does anyone know if Kielmansegge wore a 'fore and aft' hat or a bicorne or a field cap on the day of battle?
I did not go to Historicon, at least I can paint!
