Post news Report RSS Napoleon's Bavarian Ally

A preview of the infantry of the Kingdom of Bavaria, as featured in the mod.

Posted by on

Here we'll be taking a looksy at the basic line infantry of the Kingdom of Bavaria, the largest state within the Confederation of the Rhine. The Confederation of the Rhine being a very loose collection of German states created by Napoleon in 1806.

During the War of the Fifth Coalition, wherein the mod is set, the majority of fighting occurred in and around Bavaria. The Bavarian army was, with the exception of the Duchy of Warsaw, the largest of Napoleonic France's allies during the war and provided the main anti-coalition force in the early goings before France was able to fully mobilise.

In these screenshots you'll see Bavarian Fusiliers, the backbone of the Bavarian army, in their accurate 1809 period uniforms replete with the Raupenhelm, which some might call the most ridiculous piece of headgear ever worn.


Thank you very much for reading, and good night (or day, depending on when you read this).

Why do you consider this helmet more rediculous than the Shako or the ludacrist bear hat of the brits??? I personally think the Bavarian uniform including the helmet to be one of the best looking ones of the Napoleonic era
