Murawski Baden Infantry 2/3rd

After no work on the 28mm Peninsular War project crossing my painting desk since the mustering of the Vistula Lancers (see Vistula Lancers) in February, off from the workbench today is a 17 figure battalion of Baden Line infantry.
These fine Murawski Miniatures decamp as the second battalion of the 3rd Baden Infantry Regiment.  Great figures with fine, detailed sculpting.  The sculpting is in the style of Minden, Fife & Drum, and Brigade Games.  That is, having a slender build with anatomically pleasing proportions.
The Peninsular War project gains another reinforcement for the French.  With so many varied and interesting French allies, it has been difficult to maintain parity with their opposition.  More work is needed to bring the British back into balance.
Baden sent the 4th Regiment of two battalions and one gun to the Peninsula.  Interestingly, the first battalion of the 4th and the second battalion of the 3rd were combined to form the 4th Infantry Regiment.  So in the Peninsular War, the 4th will field two battalions with different facings.

When will the 4th's sister battalion see action on the painting desk?  Well, that may be awhile.

    1. Thanks, Peter! It was your inspiration and salesmanship that made these Badeners possible.

      Now to concoct an interesting scenario to pit Britain vs France in the Peninsula. Maybe another One Hour Wargames scenario is in order? Remember Arroyo Con Pollo?

  6. Excellent work Jonathan! It's great to see more and more painted examples of our Baden range. Mind if we show them off on our (Murawski) Facebook account?

  12. As usual, Jonathan, your units look very well turned out and battle ready. I like these chaps a lot.
    I have some 6mm Badeners in my lead pile, you are making me want to pull them out and have a go at them. I will certainly keep this post handy as a uniform guide.
