Those Units look real pretty. Well done!

To Clarify the origin of the name for those Guards:

The Polish Guard was raised from Saxons and named only Polish Guards to function as a Honor Guard in Warsaw when The King August the Strong was there. No polish "gentlemen" served with those unit even as August has hoped so by naming the unit that was in an attempt to inspire enthusiasm.
Their was instead a polish Crown Army...by name "Army" alone of about 5000-10000 individuals that fought side by side with the Saxons.

There has been the 1st Foot Guard later and the 2nd Foot Guard, Polish/yellow laces and Saxon/ white laces who followed after the "polish Adventure".

Cheers,
