Peter Bunde's Brigade plates are without doubt the best modern research into Napoleonic uniforms available on the market. They are presented in an A4 format with the plate on one side and the information on the reverse. These plates are my usual starting point for research if a plate on the subject is available. Whilst I do not always agree with his conclusions I have rarely
found an outright mistake in Peter's research - he just sometimes reaches different conclusions using the available research information. I recommend them unreservedly! Note that I only stock the plates which are relevant to my figures. Many other plates are available on Peter's website.
The figures in this range are designed to be suitable for the late Empire period, 1813-15. Although the Bardin regulation uniform is often described as the 1812 uniform, very few formations received these uniforms before 1813.View French Range
I like my march-attack figures to be in step. This was a formal way of moving men. It was used for getting large numbers of men in set formations to a point where they came in contact with the enemy. The men would have marched to music or the beat of drums. NCOs would have ensured that most of the men remained in step as the cohesion of the battalion relied on this. It would have been practiced on parade grounds until the men could move in unison almost without thought. It struck me when I did the research for these figures that in many illustrations most of the battalion seems to be using both hands to hold the musket. In march-attack the musket was supposed to be held in the crook of the left arm while the right arm swung free. The two handed hold was definitely not regulation. I looked into this and made inquiries from other research colleagues. The answer seems to be as follows – The French musket weighed over four and a half kilos. The regulation way of holding the musket in the crook of the left arm was not a ‘natural’ way of holding the musket. After marching for a while over rough ground, while taking fire from the enemy, it was natural for the right hand to be used to steady the musket and to take some of its weight off the left arm. In action the officers accepted this as necessary.
