More Saxon infantry in waistcoat, this time 2 grenadiers of Regiments Königin and Garde zu Fuss.
As I noted earlier when doing Saxon templates, the sources seem to disagree on a great deal of the detail of these uniforms; this is therefore my interpretation of what I have read and I make no claims to infallibility!
Saxon infantry often fought in their waistcoats during the summer (like the Russians) and this is a generic template for many of the infantry regiments that wore the unique Saxon waistcoat. The coloured template shows Regiment Prince Xaver in the blue waistcoat that was the same colour as the regiment's facings.

No time to finish this off and post the final images tonight - far too late! Will hopefully have time to post tomorrow... It seems I'm not yet done with musicians - but at least this one doesn't have really fiddly lace. :-)
