French Revolutionary Wars Bavarians

What? Yes, my friends at Reiver Castings started producing Bavarians for the FRW wearing their rather unique and incredibly cheap and nasty Rumford (Benjamin Thompson, Baron Rumford) uniforms. Bavaria joined the alliance against the French and participated half-heartedly in the War of the First Coalition where the country was quickly overrun, and War of the Second Coalition (by which time they were in the process of ditching the Rumford uniform for something more practical, comfortable and long lasting), taking part in the Battle of Hohenlinden in 1800.

Below are the two battalions of Grenadier Regiment No. 2 (Kurprinz).
