Confederation of the Rhine

Lippe 1809
Well perry miniatures have just released what has to be the most colourful range of Napoleonic soldiers ever!

The Confederation of the Rhine in all its glory!

I have ordered the 5th to start. The 5th regimant comprises the Lippe and Anhalt battalions. As soon as I have these babies painted up I will move onto the 4th and I can't wait.

There is quite a lot of info out the on the Rhinebund but it can be quite confusing. Alan Perry has very kindly broken down the regimental organisation on the website, which will be helpful to get you going.
As i paint the regiments I will try and find the time to write a little potted history.
