25th Reichsarmee Template - Musketeer of the Paderborn Infantry Regiment Mengersen (Westphalian Circle)

A regiment of a single battalion and composed of a single contingent, this Paderborn unit was rated as "adequate" by Soubise.

The lace above the cuffs seems odd without buttons but the pictorial material I could find suggests that this was the arrangement (unless someone has other material to the contrary, which I would be grateful to know about!).

Sir David,
Success is a beautiful thing! I really love the second flag with the pensioner in the center. Now I have to break out the brushes and finish these guys. I have been busy painting my Foreign Legion Brigade and may put the pensioners in it to stiffen up the allies. Thanks again and I hope all is well with you...Bill

Love the new templates. I've not had much chance to visit your blog for a while, but every time I do I'm generously rewarded. Keep up the superb work.

Steve.
(P.S. Any chance of one or two General officer's uniforms from the armies of the main 7YW protagonists? - Austria, Hesse, France etc.)

Thanks for the message, Bill. Have replied via email.

Thanks, Steve. I just keep on going with it - a bit like the Energiser bunny, really. ;-)

I did make a start at drafting some generals' uniforms a while ago but couldn't get on with them - they simply didn't look right. I'll have another look at them and see if it's possible to restart and improve them.

David.
