In which von Peter himself interrupts his normal broadcasting to bring you a Bavarian special.
1/13 Infantry Regiment, Bavarian
The 1st battalion of the 13th Infantry Regiment, Bavarian, have trudged to the front to do ‘that’ Emperor’s bidding … apart from the times when they will be assigned to the side fighting against ‘that’ Emperor and his biddings of course. This either side will do approach is one of the benefits of basing ones self in that year of numerous momentous events – 1813. Many of the bullied nations finally got to throw off the shackles of French oppression and actively moved into the anti French and ‘we’re happy to show it’ camp* and so can be fielded on either side of the battlefield.
* It is only with great difficulty and a gargantuan effort that von Peter himself manages to retain his totally unbiased view of these historic events. von Peter himself trusts that the dear reader appreciates the restraint! 8O)
Enough propaganda / ranting. The 1/13 Infantry Regiment were part of Generalmajor Becker’s Brigade which in turn were part of Generallieutenant Raglovich’s 29th (Bavarian) Division … which in turn were part of Marschal Oudinot’s XII Corps. Contained within the machinations of von Peter himself are plans to recreate Generalmajors Becker’s Brigade hence the acquisition of the 1/13th.
Figures are sourced from Front Rank Figurines and were brought to life by the painter of figures Bavarian for von Peter himself Nigel Fun-nell.
They have been assigned a rather plain Bavarian flag from GMB Designs. Most / all (von Peter himself has neither the time nor the inclination to check right now!) of the lower numbered Bavarian Infantry Regiments are named,
e.g. 4th Sachsen-Hildburghausen Infantry Regiment.
The plain flag seemed to go naturally with a high numbered and unnamed infantry regiment.

And a Bavarian resource is unleashed
The History Book Man have released their latest volume in their Armies and Uniforms of the Napoleonic wars series of e-books for the war gamer and enthusiast. The Army of The Kingdom of Bavaria 1792-1814 is now available to be ordered … and von Peter himself has not been slow to do so.
The Bavarians of von Peter himself have had most of their uniform details decided upon already. Most of those decisions were based on an old OLD paper “The Bavarian Army: 1805-14” which is a direct precursor of this updated and expanded e-book. Funny.
