Spain is a great option to explore because they weren't in Mount and Blade NW, so it will be interesting and new

Honestly I'd be happy with just UK+France but a big roster. Even if UK ends up by and large just being the "not france" faction that's fine by me.

While I will miss cool battles of UK vs Prussia, a large roster of Units between 2 factions would be great and could really spice up battles each time.

Sweden declared war on the United Kingdom. The bloodless war, however, existed only on paper.

Just kidding, but Sweden actually joined the third coalition: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franco-Swedish_War

Pls don't look up our Kings heritage.

Major Nations:
Austria • France • Great Britain • Prussia • Russia
I bet in early access we are going to have only France and UK. Maybe in full release, we will have 5 major factions: Kaisertum Österreich, Königreich Preußen, Российская Империя, United Kingdom and Empire Français. If it's going to be moddable and mod friendly we will have tons of reskins etc. We need to remember that Anvil Games Studios is not TaleWorlds Entertainment with 100+ employees but new, small studio with its first game on early access on steam so we can't expect them to make a huge game.

I like that idea.

I personally would like to see other nations than those in NW. Maybe France, UK, Russia, Spain? I have seen many that wishes to see the Ottoman Empire too... The list of nations could be long, but of course there is a limit of what is possible.

The Danish Royal Life Guard.

Personally, I would like to see all nations from Europe but they just can't do this due to a small studio. The nations I remember that existed in 1800: Naples , Papal State, Tuscany-Etruria, Genoa, Lucca, Italy, Bavaria, Baden-Wurttemberg, Parma, Switzerland, Hanover, Cologne, Netherlands, Danmark, Sweden,  Brunswick, Anhalt, Ansbach, Thuringen, Saxony, Nassau, Nurenberg, Mainz, Frankfurt, Sardinia-Piedmont. Most of those small nations in Germany formed Westphalia/Rhen Confederation. Maybe we can get Rhen with 1 or 2 regiments from each country that was part of it.

I'd like to see Sweden with their fancy high-hats fighting it out against French, Danish, Norwegian and Russian troops

Spain it's a great idea, by the variety of troops and the good ships they had before trafalgar, and like always had the better commanders :)

My own bias: United Kingdom of the Netherlands, and fuck the Batavian Republic, slave of France

My non-bias: Spain, Ottomans.

While I don't believe the game is strictly adhering to a single year in regards to battles and things, all of the uniforms are from 1809, so if a Dutch faction were added it would be the Kingdom of Holland under Louis Bonaparte.

Prussia... I can see it now, the rows of line infantry marching over the horizon, with their navy colored jackets flapping in the wind and held high above their heads overlooking the field, a great black eagle striking fear into all that see it. and with the opposition still thinking it might still have a chance, their ranks are suddenly destroyed by death itself, the Totenkopf hussars have arrived! With such discipline and strategy the Prussians make short work of all who appose the.

I am very exited for this game, all of it is looking so good, I cant wait to play as the British or the French, But I will always be looking forward to the implementation of PRUSSIA!
