My first photos are from a german town guard (milicia).
The officer is the only person with symbols of his rank. The orange sash has nothing to do with dutch Service. I saw an orange sash and cocade on a painting of a german captain of the town guard of Schwäbisch Hall.
Weapons and clothes are typical for citizens of a town. Farmers had normal round hats and somehow simpler coats. The old bayonet of one of the civilians is a reminder of the historical aspect, that every citizen had to buy his own weapons. Perhaps this poor fellow uses only the weapons and equipment of his father. In some rare situations such guards fought against regular troops especialy in sieges or as guards of earthworks blockading a road. As defenders of towns these milicias were not always useless.
General von Hammerstein leading the Regiment Leib-Reuter.
I gave the Regiment black horses because the horse on the painting by Morier is black. Perhaps it was the typical colour of all the horses of this unit.
Every rider has a different charging pose. I think that this was often the case in action. The horses are from the famous old set by Revell of austrian dragoons which is perfect for hanoverian horses. The commanding officer has a bay horse, the NCO has no carbine as noted on kronoskaf.
This is the commander of my infantry brigade. I've to say that I have no Information about the look of these generals during the WAS because all paintings I know are later.
Still 2 more bn.s to paint. Hope you like the units and generals.
Es marschierten drei Regimenter wohl über den Rhein...
