It's been a bit longer than planned but the new 1815 Brunswickers are now ready to take to the field!

The army of Brunswick was raised from volunteers by German-born Frederick William, Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. The Duke was a harsh opponent of Napoleon Bonaparte's occupation of his native Germany and the corps initially comprised a mixed force when it was formed in 1809, around 2,300 men comprised of infantry, cavalry and later supporting artillery.

The Brunswickers earned themselves a fearsome reputation, taking part in several significant battles including Quatre Bras and Waterloo.  Recruiting and finance were always problematic and the corps was disbanded in the early 1820s.

Most units wore black uniforms, though some light units (such as sharpshooters and uhlans) wore green uniforms. The Brunswickers wore silvered skull badges on their hats.

Lovely sculpts*

I have always favoured (and gamed) the Brunswickers. Nice, small, self contained body of troops with a relatively simple colour scheme. There is also something quite romantic and dashing about their story ... and of course there is the "Black Brunswicker" by Millais.



*Of course, I shall have to find an alternative for the Avant Garde ... kneeling or firing poses only! No advancing!?  *Zut!*

all the Brunswick troops in 1815 wore black uniforms with the exception of the two companies of Gelernte Jägers of the advanced guard who wore grey uniforms. If I remember correctly the Uhlans wore green in 1809

Does anyone have any sage advice for painting black uniforms?

I saw one article which recommended adding light pink to black to create the highlight, rather than white. This was for 28mm figures mind you. Not tried it myself so no idea how it would work in 10mm. I have tried using a very dark blue for the highlight, rather than grey. Not bad, but tends not to be that noticeable once on the table top. Interested to hear what others think as these are tempting for use with Sharp Practice 2.

For 10mm figures, which generally need a lighter tone anyway, would you be better with a dark grey as your base colour (German Grey VAL995 or Black Grey VAL862) and then putting a black wash over the top of it to create shadow?  I've seen tutorials on bigger figures where they drybrush a dark grey over a black base instead.

This!!

Light gray and black wash, if its too light, hit it again with the wash.

FWIW Check out my necromancer's standing stone and robes, best example I have for 10mm, but it holds true on 28mm, you just have to exaggerate colors in 10mm.

Fantastic scults  Applause and ones that edge me even closer to a 10mm Napoleonic project (only scale missing lol)
I am a little confused as to the composition of the Line command , Light Infantry and Avant Guard packs.
The Line carried two flags per Battalion meaning almost half of NBW3 are surplus to requirements unless the unit is over represented in officers and musicians.
The Light Battalions were around the same size as the Line yet these packs are only 16 figures and the Avant Guard standard is not needed at all as they didn't carry flags ( unless my reading is hideously out of date....which is possible)
Wouldn't a smaller Line command pack, with enough for the 3 Battalions and a pack of 30 for the Light Battalion code have been better ? I'm not sure there will be a noticeable difference in 10mm between Line and Light
but that only throws into question why there is a separate pack
Its not a huge problem as I'm sure we have all experienced how flexible the Pendraken team is in composing your order, just seemed an odd way of listing to me

I'll double check on that one, it rings a bell and the pack might contain double standards.  I'll check the mould on Monday.

The Light Battalions were around the same size as the Line yet these packs are only 16 figures.

That's more for continuity across our ranges rather than anything else, we've always done the lights in 16 man packs so we've continued it here.  Folks can buy more packs and ask us to send less command though, never a problem.

The Avant Guard standard is not needed at all as they didn't carry flags ( unless my reading is hideously out of date....which is possible)

I'll check our notes for the range on this, our big Naps customer put together the reference material for the sculptor and the standard could have been an 'optional' extra.  I think we had a similar case with one of the other Naps codes (Grenzers maybe?) but it's better to have one than not and if it's not needed you can leave it out.
