If you haven't looked at those posts, please do...there is some great history and personal accounts from members of the Regiment.
When I started painting Napoleonics, the first regiment I painted was my Gordon Highlanders. This was purely because they were the only models that my local games store had in stock! My plan quickly evolved though to try and re-create the 7th Division from the Peninsular War (specifically the Battle of Vittoria) because they included the Durham Light Infantry.
The 7th Division is actually very interesting . It was known as 'the Mongrel Division' because it contained such a mix of troops from different nationalities.
Here is my eventual planned units:
1st Brigade: Major General Barnes:
1/6th Foot Regiment
3rd Provisional Battalion
2/24th Foot Regiment
2/58th Foot Regiment
Brunswick Oels (9 coys)
2nd Brigade: Major General Grant:
1/51st Foot Regiment
1/68th Foot Regiment
1/82nd Foot Regiment
3rd Brigade:Major General Le Cor
7th Portuguese Regiment
19th Portuguese Regiment
plus some supporting units of cavalry and artillery.
Well, that's enough of my plan, here is my finished 68th Foot (DLI):
