Line Infantry Uniforms --

Well, this is a simpler, less artistic uniform template -- but at least you can get an idea of what my line infantry units will look like.

Everyone (except the artillerymen) is in red coats in honor of the "red bear" of Saxe-Bearstein.
  • IR1 is von Molson's Battalion. Regimental color is medium blue.
  • IR2 is von Becks' Battalion. Regimental color is white.
  • IR3 is von Grolsch's Battalion. Regimental color is light green.
  • IR4 is von Carling's Battalion. Regimental color is black.
  • IR5 is von Shlitz's Battalion. Regimental color is maroon.
  • IR6 is von Coors' Battalion. Regimental color is yellow.
  • IR7 is von Lowenbrau's Battalion. Regimental color is light blue.
  • IR8 is von Urquell's Battalion. Regimental color is dark green.
  • All Artillerymen wear a dark grey coat with red cuffs, lapels, turnbacks, etc.
Most units have pewter buttons and white hat tape (silver for officers). The exceptions are Becks', Lowenbrau's and Urquell's battalions who have brass buttons and yellow hat tape (gold for officers). The Artillerymen do have pewter buttons -- but their white hat tape has been permanently stained to grey by the smoke of their cannons.

Hi Jeff,
congratulations & thanks : we can now visualize the forces of Saxe-Bearstein. Surely an encouragement to you, to have your "aim" well-defined and already "in view", and both an appetizer & a pleasant substitute while we are looking forward to actual photos.
And a good exemple to all imagi-Nations bloggers!
