2nd Battalion, 2nd Nassau Regiment


The completion of the 2nd battalion of the 2nd Nassau Regiment finishes another key component of the "German Division". For information on this famous regiment just follow the link in the order of battle below to the 1st battalion.

2nd [German] Infantry Division 
GdD Jean-Francois, Baron Leval,

Brigade
OB Heinrich, Freiherr von Porbeck,
Baden Infantry Regiment Gross-Herzog Nr. 4: OB Heinrich, Freiherr von Porbeck, 2 battalions
Nassau Infantry Regiment Nr. 2: OB August von Kruse, 1st Battalion
Nassau Infantry Regiment Nr. 2: OB August von Kruse, 2nd Battalion
Baden Foot Battery: 2 – 7pdr howitzers, MAJ Franz-Friedrich-Christian von Steinmetz

Brigade
GM David-Hendrik Chasse,
Composite Dutch Infantry Regiment: OB Baron de Grave, 2 battalions
Dutch Horse Artillery Battery Nr. 3: 6 guns, HPT Hendrik-Rudolph Trip

Confederation of the Rhine Battalion Nr. 3 (Frankfurt) OBL von Welsch,
Hessen-Darmstadt Foot Batterie: 4 – 6pdrs, LT Ludwig Venator


The second battalion as with the first is composed of figures primarily from "Warmodelling" although I have included the lovely looking AB officer in the bicorne at the front of the command group. The Colour is from Adolfo Ramos Flags







The answer to my "Can you spot the deliberate mistake?" question in my post about the 1st Battalion was that I had omitted the Voltigeur bases because I didn't have suitable figures. With the painting of the 2nd battalion I produced bases for both battalions


Next up, the third run through of the Oporto scenario and the Confederation of the Rhine Battalion No.3 Frankfurt.
