Re: Venetian cavalry (dragoons)

Glad you've found it. I've just looked it up on Google Books - a very bright uniform that should paint up well (although I can't imagine it staying that colour for very long !). Look forward to seeing the finished figures. 'History & Uniforms' looks like a very interesting magazine. Helpful that the...

Re: Venetian cavalry (dragoons)

Hi Stuart. I can't help with the uniforms unfortunately, but I did come across this online source which provides quite a bit of information about the Regiment of Dragoons raised by Marquis Nicolò Grimaldi de Courbon and their service in the Morea: https://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/tel-01287498/docume...

Beautifully painted - lovely clean lines ! The colours and shield designs are excellent.

Re: Saxon brigade

>> Tomorrow I hope to do some of my two Saxon cavalry brigades.

I'm looking forward to seeing these. I do like the red and gold colour combination you have used on the infantry. Some really effective basing (the snow is particularly good :D).

They seem to have stepped out of a classic painting of a GNW battle. Really nice. Phil

Re: Huguenot Red & Blue Dragoons

Thanks Wienand, I'd not heard of them before so I am sure you are right - either short-lived formations or a result of mis-identification. Of course, it doesn't help that the some Regiments were sometimes referred to by various different names further obscuring an already murky picture). Thanks agai...

Huguenot Red & Blue Dragoons

In his book 'The Huguenot Soldiers of William of Orange', Matthew Glozier mentions the above two Dragoon Regiments (which, I assume, are named for their coat colours).

I don't suppose anyone has any further information about these two Regiments ?

Re: Gardes de Baviere & Gardes de Cologne

Thank you - some really excellent uniform guides. I particularly like the Bavarian Leibregiment and will have to include at least a battalion of these.

Thanks again.

Re: Gardes de Baviere & Gardes de Cologne

Thank you for the reply. The archive diagram is very interesting indeed and I hope I can enlarge it sufficiently to read. I have also found this: https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k875527k/f56.image From 'La Bataille de Malplaquet'. Very clear but unfortunately only covers the French Infantry. T...

Gardes de Baviere & Gardes de Cologne

I'm painting up a number of French & allied Regiments which form part of the Ramillies Order of Battle and have come across a brigade comprising the above two Regiments. I've also seen reference to them brigaded together at Malplaquet. I am now trying to work out who they are as I can find no other ...
