Baden Line Infantry - 28mm Murawski

Baden Line Infantry. All four line regiments now completed. See my previous post on these for more information about Baden and these figures, and for reasoning regarding the flags.

Originally I was only going to have two regiments of these, but once you have two there are only another two to add and you've got the entire Baden Duchy, which is one of those difficult to resist temptations Napoleonic players experience... 

These can also stand in for when I need a few more Rhine Confederation troops with Raupenhelm for a battle.

Regiment #1, Leib Regt Grossherzog. Red facings, white buttons.







Regiment #2, Erbgrossherzog. Yellow facings, yellow buttons.







Regiment #3, von Harrant. Red facings, white buttons.







Regiment #4, von Porbeck. White facings, yellow buttons.







The Badeners put up rather extraordinary resistance at Leipzig given circumstances I think, see this account of their actions.

  1. Wonderful, mark. But of course you had to do all 4 regiments. Curiously, I did the same thing - 2 Baden line plus the Jagers (The much mourned, ephemeral Pontoonier figures), then the other 2 Baden line from Murawski. My light Dragoons are nearly finished, to be followed shortly by the artillery and mounted officers, in time for Historicon. And yes, in a pinch the Badeners make a reasonable stand in for Bavarians or Wurttemburgers.

    1. Thanks Peter, your own information about these have been invaluable, in addition to the Rawkins book. I look forward to seeing your latest Baden reinforcements! I'm tempted to add the Hussars too :)

  2. Mark is a great result. It is interesting to see the full army of Baden. 8 years ago I abandoned Berg Kleve in favor of the Austrians. Although I could also create absolutely the whole army that fought for Napoleon.

    1. Thanks Dmitry, yes it's nice to do the entire contingent from an army, a bit like building an entire Brigade or Corp from a larger nation. Austrians are a good choice though! :)

  3. Wonderful looking units Mark and the Murawski figures do look particularly good. You have done a superb job on them that's for sure.

    1. Thanks Carlo! The Murawski Baden in full dress are quite slender but paint up very nicely :)

  4. Great looking regiments, Mark! I do understand how it difficult to stop collecting interesting army units. You thought you've suspended but at the same time find out a new opportunity to continue :) It very close to me

  5. Great battalions, Mark! The army of Baden is small, you can do it all.

  7. Gorgeous operatic work! They look lovely! I once naively mistook a Baden regiment for a Bavarian one and was severely taken to task! I'm looking forward to you completing the whole army!

    1. Thanks Iain, yes they are quite similar with Bavarian lighter blue and flags being the most obvious difference!
