The Next Templates...

Well, unless the Poll changes dramatically in the next 24 hours it looks as if the French are well ahead. (That fits rather well with my plans anyway! :-)) Next is the Reichsarmee.

So, the plan will probably be first to do variants on the basic French infantry uniform; someone would like versions of the uniforms worn by the French regiments in North America for a web article which has already used my single French infantry template so I shall do those units as they make a good small and varied selection. Then I shall probably do some foreign units in French service - German and Swiss regiments, especially, as well as Grenadiers de France. That should keep me busy for a while!

For the Reichsarmee, I shall probably draw a selection of the best infantry regiments as identified by Soubise in 1757 (in Duffy, Prussia's Glory), otherwise there are simply too many from which to choose.

I haven't looked thoroughly into the SYW in India yet but do have some good material for it. It will be some weeks yet before I get there...

Prussian Grenadier IR12 or 18 with black eagle on mitre cap

Four Prussian regiments had a black eagle of some sort on the mitre cap - IRs 3, 11, 12 and 18. The variant here represents Regiment 12 or 18. The other two regiments had much smaller black eagles on the mitre front and different lacing on the coat.

Problems with Polls

There's a problem with Polls on Blogger at the moment so I had to use a workaround to delete the Poll on numbers of templates downloaded. My apologies to the one person who managed to vote; I have noted what the vote was!
