This caught my eye on the front page:

Who makes figures for this in either 15s or 25s?

What are good source/s for uniform information?

Was this a transition period for uniforms? I presume troops would look more "French Revolution" than "Napoleonic."

Anyway, this piqued my interest in off-the-beaten-path campaigns. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

How much uniform information is in the book?

Paul Demet05 Oct 2018 9:07 a.m. PST

Geert's book is an excellent and very detailed account of the background and course of the campaign, including orders of battle and some nice B/W illustrations based on contemporary drawings. However, it does not cover the uniforms. I think the best book on Dutch uniforms of this period is Dr F. G. de Wilde 'De uniformen van het Nederlandse leger ten tijde van de Bataafse Republiek en het Koninkrijk Holland 1795-1810' Amsterdam, De Bataafsche Leeuw, 1999).

There's also quite a lot online at: link

In 28mm Eureka do a "Wars of the French Revolution" range that includes French and Russians but I'm not sure who does Brits suitable for the period. The Perry 1801 figures are very nice but they are in shakoes, roundhats or Tarletons so not the bicornes that the campaign probably needs.

Thanks for the info so far. I found the BH a little while ago, but the Brits don't have the proper headgear, as they are in shakos or round hats. It could end up being just one of those things that you have to deal with.

Re "I'm not sure who does Brits suitable for the period."
Trent Miniatures has the range of Brits in tri-corns and round hats. They do French, Austrians, Poles and Italians as well.

I thought of Trent, but all I can find are Brits in round hats. I did discover that Minifigs makes 15mm Brits in bicornes.

There are some figures in Trent's Irish Militia which are suitable for British regulars in 1799. They are wearing the bicorne but appear to be in mixed poses.

Minifigs has a pretty complete range of British and French Revolutionary-era figures in 15mm- with an array of headgear choices for both nations. Their Napoleonic 15mm line includes Russians in a range of pre-1805 uniforms, most notably mitres and cocked hats.

There are some great TMP threads on the challenges of painting Russians of that era- the regimental identities and facing colors were in a state of flux, so you can have some fun nailing them down.

in 28mm for British there are Trent, Reiver Casting and Victorious Miniatures. For the Batavian Republic you can use French figures; there are differences but in 28mm it will do

mildbill05 Oct 2018 1:29 p.m. PST

Lancashire does figures in 15mm.

von Winterfeldt05 Oct 2018 11:01 p.m. PST

Sho Boki is doing British in hat in 18 mm – they might be suitable as well, as an quite extensive range of French infantry which would fit nicely – more in the pipeline for sure.

Yes Boki is currently sculpting some Revolutionary stuff in 18mm . I have been commissioned to sculpt figures for British and Russians for the late Flanders campaign, in 28mm. For Emperor Toad range. link but that's over a year away.
