Having looked at a small Pils-Holstein Brigade last time, it's time to turn attention to a French Brigade... This is The Picardie Brigade (so named after it's senior regiment, as all my French Brigades will be), comprising:
- Brigadier: The Marquis of Genitalia
- 4 Battalions of Infantry - Picardie, Normandie, Auvergne, Orleans.
- 1 Light Gun
- 1 Wagon
This seems to conform to pretty well what most of the commentors on the previous post are doing in terms of brigades in 18 Century, in terms of numbers of battalions etc.
Also included in the pictures above are a variety of "extras" - 2 piece vignettes, officers, drummers and the like... just to add flavour. They play no part in the rules, and are simply shown to add eye candy to the scene.
It's perhaps worth explaining that I'm using the terms "battalion" and "regiment" interchangeably as I have single battalion regiments in all armies. For me, there doesn't seem any point having 2 Picardie regiments in the collection, for example, when there are so many other nice units to represent (and differing flags to depict!).
Comments, as always, appreciated...
