With the Battle of Trebbia as a possible monument for 2019 gaming (see Project Plans 2019), a battalion of the Polish Legion was pushed into the painting queue. Thirteen figures comprising this BMU muster out as the 1st battalion of the 1st Polish Legion. Figures are AB Miniatures. As expected from AB, the figures are superb with fine detailing. I found the dark blue uniform with colored labels an easier unit to paint than an equivalent French battalion. Still need to grant the battalion a flag.
The 1st Polish Legion served in Dabrowski's Division at Trebbia. Each of the three infantry battalions under Dabrowski were distributed across each of his three brigades. The 1st Battalion was assigned to Calvin's Brigade. Dabrowski's division was engaged on the first day of battle (June 17) along with Victor and Rusca at Tidone Creek. After having passed the Tidone, Dabrowski was attacked vigorously by Bagration. The Poles were forced to retire back across the Tidone.
The 1st Battalion joins the 2nd Battalion in "Figures Completed" side of the ledger. To finish off Dabwroski's command, one more Legion infantry battalion is needed in addition to a combined grenadier/chasseur battalion, two squadrons of lancers, and two squadrons of dragoons.
