I like Rall. NOT "von" Rall just plain Rall. The regiment was a standing grenadier regiment, and not a converged grenadier battalion. It also had a company that was detached to join another converged grenadier battalion. I like that. It's so confusing. To be "authentic", you must have figures with no lapels. Perry makes dedicated Rall figures, but before that I bought a whole passel of Foundry Frei Korps grenadiers without lapels. I'm quite proud of that. During the war, they did solid if not spectacular service. At Trenton, despite popular belief, they were NOT drunk. Just surprised. After Trenton, the Landgrave of Hess was so upset by the debacle that he convened a court of inquiry. Predictably, they blamed all the dead officers (specifically Rall but including others) and exonerated the living. What's not to like?
