Now that Prussia will be confirmed added, will we see Spain as a follow-up faction? Since its in second place right now anyways.

There'll be a new poll for sure. The Prussia voters need to be given a chance to vote as well.

Austria and Russia (any order) must to go next by logic of their role in conflict.

Others more about player demography wanting "their country" to play, no matter about historical realities. But this is okay : )

By logic of their role in the conflict, I would have added Austria, then Spain, then the Confederacy of the Rhine, then Portugal and then Italy. Prussia and Russia did not partake in the 5th War of the Coalition nor the Peninsular War.

Isn't Holdfast about Napoleonic wars in broad scope, up to 1815? With all action in proportion of gunpowder used and bodies?

May be I just already bit tired that every "historical" WW2 game just about endless variations of same Normandy with some super-cliche go-go-go over-heroic us marines who kill germans in bunkers and save all the world ten times in row.

Hate to sound as proverbial SJW, but we need more historicly honest representation of such epic periods of warfare : ) In Holdfast I see it as going away from just british-centered and Spain action as far to central-eastern continental Europe as possible.

Majority of the uniforms are from 1809, with the latest being from 1811. The devs have stated that they want the game to be primarily based on 1809.

Sorry for doubleposting, but thinking about it it'll be interesting to see how the devs will differentiate grenadiers and guards for the Austrians.

I have some ideas for Austrian guard units. We'll see.

I doubt Spain is a fitting second choice as its field army did very little in the entire period and its navy was destroyed in one fell swoop. I'd say Russia an Austria is the way to go, Russia's armies played a fair role and are a very interesting faction, I personally find Austria a little bland in comparison but I'd say it played one of the biggest roles in the era.

I haven't run the numbers precisely, but I'm almost certain the Spanish fought and won more battles against the French than anyone else in the era. The rebel Spanish army and their guerilla allies were perhaps the greatest force leading to Napoleon's downfall.

I said field army, the rebels no doubt played a vital role in aiding the liberation of Spain. But in the end it what British involvement aided by the Spanish countryside that caused greater french involvement and thus hurt the French Empire. I doubt that without British involvement the Peninsular War would never have been a major impediment to Napoleon. Which is why I don't think Spain is prominent enough to overshadow nations such as Russia and Austria, Russia, which was the reason why Napoleon was defeated and Austria, the nation that was steady fighting battles.

The rebel Spanish army was an organised field army made up of regulars, fighting under the authority of the government in exile and the juntas that served as their surrogates in Spain (and later the Cortes).
