A question about the Hussars uniform

Hello, I started painting my first unit of the British Horse Artillery, and it arose in me a doubt about the color of the cords of the tunic for Officers. These Gunners had the same Hussar's jacket, with the cords on his chest. For the Troopers the color of the cords was yellow. The question is: als...

Re: Questions regarding the Light Infantry.

My doubt, as I said in my previous post, is whether it is to be applied only to the battalions of the Line, or even to those Light, including Fusiliers. Many thanks, Cheers, Sergio Hi Sergio, Just to clarify, British Fusulier regiments were not 'light', but structured as line units, with each batta...

Re: Questions regarding the Light Infantry.

Hello friends, specific rules for the Napoleonic period will be studied in the near future, when we do the armies lists for this period also. I foresee that we will put them on our website on February-March 2014. I thank Friedrich August for the very useful information, which we will keep account. H...

Re: Horse Artillery: speed of movement

Hello, someone would know by any chance if the speed of movement of the batteries of Horse Artillery was the same as that of the Cavalry Regiments? The batteries move only at the trot or even at gallop? Coming to the practical: I would make sense to give to the Unit of Horse Artillery the same move...

Re: A question about the inside of the coat .

Exactly & most of the time there is no definitive information to tell exactly which way such things where done at any given point so you pay's your money and takes your choice. This to me is one of the pleasures of this period there is enough evidence we have a clue were to start but not so much th...

Re: A question about the inside of the coat .

Theoretically the lining of the coat would be the same colour as the turn backs of the cuffs & the waistcoat was often made form the lining of the previous coat worn lining side out. However there is nothing to stop the lining being the same colour as the coat especially if it was a cheaper materia...

A question about the inside of the coat .

Hi, in the Osprey's book " Marlborough 's Army 1702-11 ", in table C is depicted a Grenadier of the 1st Foot Guards . In the drawing I have noted that the inner part of the coat is of blue color as the lapel of the sleeves. It may therefore be a lining. Or not? Looking at some pictures of painted mi...

Hi Sergio, Here is my 1st Foot Guards for Blenheim in 1704. http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg135/07samurai/The1stFootGuards.jpg Unfortunately the person who painted these did not include drummers for them. Your drummers in reverse coats are wrong and should be in Scarlet Red coats & breeches, B...

Musicians uiform of the 1st Guard Regiment - Help

Hello, I started painting miniatures that are supposed to represent the soldiers of the 1st Guard Regiment at the time of the Battle of Blenheim. To paint them as accurately as possible, I did some research in the net and I found some images. But, from them, some doubts have arisen about the color o...

Re: Musicians of the British 1st Guards Regiment

Beig, The sources you show are correct. The Foot Guards drummers wore scarlet (red) jackets with the inverted chevron lace on the sleeves (they still do). Foot Guards colours (flags) are different to those of British Regiments of Foot. For the Foot Guards the King's Colour (modern Queen's Colour) c...

Hello, I started painting one of the "battalion pack" of the Front Rank miniatures of British Infantry, with the intention of representing the 1st Guards Regiment at Waterloo. I arose a doubt about the color of the uniform of the Musicians. From the information I have found in the books in my posses...

Re: Question about the Lancers of the Guard at Waterloo

Hello Sergio, my first attempt was right. The 2nd Lancers of the Guard, also known as the Dutch Lancers, wore red trousers. Only in the time from 1813 to 1814 they had troopers who wore blue trousers because those were Squadrons of Young Guard who were attached to this Senior formation to increase ...
