going to be painting up a unit of the above for a friend and was wondering if anyone knows of any online source for the uniforms and flags of Hesse-Kassel from 1700-1714

TIA

thanks, tried contacting the author of the post but have not had a reply, also looked at the Blenheim index and couldn't see anything there regarding the Hesse-Kassel units

Well, If you have a few bucks at hand you may invest them in buying a Robert Hall CD from Baccus:

Hope that helps

Use the link given.

Click on 'Parent Directory'

Then click on 'Blenheim.htm'

You will then have access to the entire Order of Battle for both armies and can find the Hesse-Kassel Regiments. This site doesn't have uniforms and flags for all Hesse-Kassel Regiments but there are enough to be getting on with !

Hope this helps.

...also, if it helps, I have the Robert Hall CD and am very happy to provide details on a specific Regiment.

Cheers,
