Confederation of the Rhine - 20mm

About 40 (!) years ago I painted up the Duchy of Wurzburg's 3 battalions, cavalry regiment and gun battery as part of my Airfix Napoleonic wargames army. When I got back into wargaming about 10 years ago and started painting up loads of new French I decided to paint up the whole of the Confederation of the Rhine (the Rhinebund) regiments as a change from painting lots of blue coats. In moving to 6mm I have of course taken the opportunity to paint up the whole of the Confederation again. This post has the 20mm shots, and following posts will have the 6mm force, and then a comparison of the two.

20mm-0CORThe whole Rhinebund contribution of 16 battalions in 7 regiments, plus a couple of batteries.
