A few notes...
- Officers may have adopted orange sashes by 1690 in honor of King William III, though this may not have been universal. I have chosen crimson sashes because I want to make my red and grey coated regiments as flexible as possible. With a quick flag change, I can use this regiment for Hanmer's, Cunningham/Stewart's, or Churchill's for the English, Dronningen's for the Danes, or any English/Irish units that we have no info on. Some of the substitutions wouldn't be perfect, but with the correct flag waving proudly overhead, most people wouldn't notice that the trousers might not be the right color!
- I likewise painted a generic grenade symbol on the hats of the grenadiers for the same reason.
- This unit is destined to have the first pike stand in my army, but I finished these on a deadline for inclusion in an upcoming article in Wargames Illustrated and I simply didn't have time to paint the extra four models! I will update the photo on the 1690 page when I get a chance to finish the pikes.
Dutch (2 battalions of Blue Guard, Brandenburg, and Nassau-etc)
Danish (the Foot Guard, Funen, Jutland, and Zealand)
Huguenot (De la Meloniere, Caillemotte, and Cambon)
I also plan to add a unit of combined Dutch Grenadiers and some single model skirmisher grenadiers to take advantage of the Forlorn Hope rules we have coming up in a future book... :)
