Re: Just which units were part of the Gendarmerie at Blenhei

Only the Gendarmerie was at Blenheim. The other units, which were part of the Maison du Roi, were not. The Gendarmerie was not part of the Maison du Roi. So everything beginning with 005 A and after would have been there and all the units before would not have been.

Re: Scanian War Swedes and Danes?

Attached is a link to a PDF which includes a painting by Lemke of the Battle of Halmstad on 17 August 1676. In the foreground there are two Swedish musketeers in blue coats, which probably are from the Garde. The sword belt is over the right shoulder and another belt is over the left. This belt does...

Re: No colours for the fusiliers?

Truls,

What period are you looking for? The regiment was Ingoldsby's from 1693-1705. It be became the Royal Regiment of Welch Fuzileers in 1723. It appears that the flag did not have the Prince of Wales feathers, etc. until then.

Re: New Book on Battle od Helsingborg (nicht Danish)

Well, I got the book last week- very quick service from Denmark to the U.S. - and it looks pretty good. There are lots of photos of paintings, weapons and equipment, many in color, OOBs, good maps and extensive sources references. Of course, it is in Danish, which I decipher more than actually read,...

Re: New Book on Battle od Helsingborg (nicht Danish)

Upon looking at my thread title, is see that my autocorrect was set to German! My apologies.

Anyway, I get these books regardless of language because there is very little in English.

New Book on Battle od Helsingborg (nicht Danish)

Here is a new book on the Battle of Helsingborg: "Det ulykkelige slag" by Karsten Skjold Petersen. This looks like it will be good. A reviewer compares it favorably with England's book on Poltava and Oscar Sjostrom's book on Fraustadt. If this is true, it's high praise, indeed. https://gad.dk/det-ul...

Re: White coated, white hatted Hanoverian cavalry

As much as I like the Compendium, I would go with Hall on this question. Hall's latest CD is based on a lot of new research. Twenty-five years ago secondary sources indicated that white hats were worn until at least 1705, but I'm not sure if that is correct.

Re: White coated, white hatted Hanoverian cavalry

A review Robert Hall's CD shows that every picture depicting cavalry after 1700 shows a black tricorne. A few show tricornes in the 1690. All of the "round" brimmed hats in the 1690s are black. There a cream colored hats in the 1670s and 1680s.

Here are photos of the painted Rügen set that are on the BZ website. They can be enlarged.

Re: Other Scanian War uniforms?

As I posted above, Berliner Zinnfiguren does a set of flats depicting the Great Elector landing at Rügen. The set is accompanied by some historical data, including the Brandenburg OOB. There are also a number of photographs of painted figures. While the written matierals indicate that the painted fi...

Re: Opinions and info on Prussian uniforms invited.

I don't have the latest English Hall CD on Brandenburg-Preußen, but I do have an earlier monograph by August Kühn, which is very detailed and a set of color plates by Kühn and Hall that appear to be the basis for the current CD. The line drawings in the Goldberg work clearly show the sword belt unde...

I agree that generic figures would be good sellers.

Re: Opinions and info on Prussian uniforms invited.

Knötel does show grenadiers with the sword belt inside the coat. I agree that the Kuhn/Hall CD is probably your best source. Baccus6 has it a very reasonable price. With 19 plates, it covers the army quite well.
