Friedlingen

As I have been putting together the figures required for an Austrian/Imperial army for the War of Spanish Succession, I cam across a description of the Battle of Friedlingen, even though a defeat for the Imperial forces, I came across an Order of Battle. The majority of the force comes from the Swabian and Franconian Circles with a couplt of Austrian units added. Its not too large a force, numbering only about 8,500 men. An added bonus is that I already have 2 of the infantry battalions painted. So mind made up this is the force I am going to build.

I have added a couple of links from the Baccus site which details the uniforms of the Swabian and Franconian Circle force.
