I decided to pick up a few of of Peter Bunde’s Brigade plates from Calpe Minatures. I somewhat randomly picked the 1st, 6th and combined 11th 12th Prussian Reserve regiment plates.

I’d found the Osprey Books a bit limiting when it comes to good quality imagery, there majority is black and white, the few colour plates are not the best print quality and given their range of content they only cover limited uniforms.

These are a bit pricey in all fairness but I really enjoy having a physical reference. The illustrations are very similar to those you find included with Perry Miniatures and are a great resource.
I found these particularly interesting as they cover in more depth a regiment and its battalions, In the case of the Prussian reserve regiments there was a huge variation in uniforms and these plates capture it well.

There’s also a very detailed page on the reverse with that units history and battles etc. which is equally useful as a guide when considering tying units into historical formations and actions.
