Completely off track from doing a Prussian Army I have acquired a start to a Peninsula British army!
British models as a Waterloo force he had a heap of Perry Peninsula Heads as well as a pile of spare Victrix models I snapped them up :)
Well I am always one to do my wargaming on the cheap so I don't mind that the Victrix models are not as good as the Perry's (well, not THAT much) and to be honest the Perry heads fix the biggest sin of the the Victrix models, they are butt ugly!
So I am doing a Light Division, as its super cool, it has;
1 Rifle (+)
1 Elite Infantry (+)
1 RHA BTY
(The + symbol means that its a large 6 base unit instead of the usual 4 bases)
It also has;
Structure looked something like this;
Structure during the Peninsular War
- Commanding Generals: Robert Craufurd, William Erskine, Charles Alten
- 1st Brigade
- 2nd Brigade
- 1/52nd (Oxfordshire) Regiment of Foot (Light Infantry) - This is the Core Large Elite Infantry Unit (as these guys kicked ass, though not sure on size)
- 2/95th Rifles
- 1/17th Portuguese Line
- 2/17th Portuguese Line
- 1st Portuguese Caçadores. This would be a Core Cacadore Unit
- Divisional Troops
I'm still not sure on what to run as the support choice. Brunswicks (though maybe run them as Kings German Legion) would be the obvious choice but Allied Portuguese (crappy) or Reserve Light Cavalry (also crappy) would be the historical choice...
Looking forward to getting some paint on some models tomorrow.
