Wurzburg battalion

Finished a Wurzburg battalion to represent the two battalions that fought at Dennewitz in 1813. 
The uniforms are very close to a standard Italian battalion, but this battalion will be brigaded with French troops under the command of Durette. (32nd Div) (Reynier being the Corps commander) The other two Divisions being Saxon. 

The mounted colonel is from Art Miniaturen as are the grenadiers and voltigeurs. The line companies have been drawn from figures produced by Hagen. Sizewise they are a perfect match. I decided to paint the gaiters in white rather than black below the knee, just to make a change. The flag is from the freebie site warflag.com 

The Wurttembergers are presently in Australia waiting to be painted by Dan Dunbar.
