Re: More figures from my GNW painting projects- pictures added!

They seem to have stepped out of a classic painting of a GNW battle. Really nice. Phil

Re: Huguenot Red & Blue Dragoons

Thanks Wienand, I'd not heard of them before so I am sure you are right - either short-lived formations or a result of mis-identification. Of course, it doesn't help that the some Regiments were sometimes referred to by various different names further obscuring an already murky picture). Thanks agai...

Huguenot Red & Blue Dragoons

In his book 'The Huguenot Soldiers of William of Orange', Matthew Glozier mentions the above two Dragoon Regiments (which, I assume, are named for their coat colours).

I don't suppose anyone has any further information about these two Regiments ?

Re: Gardes de Baviere & Gardes de Cologne

Thank you - some really excellent uniform guides. I particularly like the Bavarian Leibregiment and will have to include at least a battalion of these.

Thanks again.

...I'm now looking forward to the new Osprey on Malplaquet being written by Simon MacDowall.

Re: Gardes de Baviere & Gardes de Cologne

Thank you for the reply. The archive diagram is very interesting indeed and I hope I can enlarge it sufficiently to read. I have also found this: https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k875527k/f56.image From 'La Bataille de Malplaquet'. Very clear but unfortunately only covers the French Infantry. T...

Gardes de Baviere & Gardes de Cologne

I'm painting up a number of French & allied Regiments which form part of the Ramillies Order of Battle and have come across a brigade comprising the above two Regiments. I've also seen reference to them brigaded together at Malplaquet. I am now trying to work out who they are as I can find no other ...

Re: Mecklenburger regiment 'Krassow' 1708

Hi Wienand, Robert Hall confirms the Colonel is Ernst Detlof but I expect this is taken from the same source you mention below ('Het Staatsche Leger'). I have also checked his work on the two Mecklenburg states but this doesn't clarify the situation either. Different spellings don't help (Krassau / ...

Re: 28mm Spanish Provincial Tercio 1675-90'

Beautiful work as always. I particularly like the variety of hats / coats / colours that gives this unit a different character.

Well done !

Re: Horse colour conformity

I expect this is a similar question as to how soldiers themselves are dressed and, regardless of reality, how you want to portray them. Do you prefer parade dress, with uniformity of horse colour and idealised uniforms, or the grubby reality of campaign dress. From a personal point of view, if I'm g...
