Here's a mockup for the Confederation of the Rhine if added to Holdfast,and since it's already featured on the poll I figured, I sort out possible units, music tracks, weapons, and so forth.

At it's peak the Rhine was made up of states, Both French influence and internal autonomy varied greatly throughout the confederations existence. There was also a great variation between the power and influence of the individual states. There are three basic types:

The first group formed the "Model States" , which were mostly ruled by relatives of Napoleon. These include the Kingdom of Westphalia under Jérôme Bonaparte. The Grand Duchy of Berg was first administered by Joachim Murat and after his appointment as King of Naples (1808) after receiving a commission by Napoleon. The third model state was the Grand Duchy of Frankfurt, which was run by House Dalberg until 1813.

The second group were the reform states of Bavaria, Württemberg, Baden, and Hesse-Darmstadt. These were not dependent areas but in many ways Napoleon's true allies. Although these states took inspiration from the French model, they also went in their own direction.

The third group formed the states that joined after 1806. These included the numerous smaller northern and central German territories, except for Saxony. In these, the internal changes were minimal. The reforms remained significantly limited in these states. However, there were also considerable differences among these states.

Surprisingly, AGS has already given us a Rhine unit with a Rhine uniform as well, the Prussian Grenadier from Berg. In terms of what will be featured here, I consider: class visibility, participation in the war, cool factor ofc  ;), and iconicity.
