Regimental standardFusilier uniformGrenadier uniform

The second guards regiment added to the establishment, most recruits hail from Conradstadt and surrounding towns, and the regiment's depot is located there. The unit is a prestigious one, gaining recruits from among the best educated in Hesse-Engelburg due to the location of the depot in a university town.

A very handsome uniform (and nice use of David's Templates)!

Whew! You are just cranking them out, aren't you?

Another good looking uniform . . . but is the fusilier's pocket supposed to be white? (it is fine if it is, of course).

I'll look forward to the next uniform template.

Ah, no, the pocket wasn't supposed to be white. I *thought* I had one that I'd missed the pocket, but I didn't notice it when I posted this. Will update it.

I've re-uploaded with the pocket corrected.

Really striking color pattern- their guard status is obvious!
Is it by deliberate distinction that in the 2 Fusiliers regiments the grenadier's collar is not of the facing color, contrary to the custom (seemingly) in the Musketeers units? Interesting.
What about the uniforms designs you depicted on Feb. 14?
Do you have a flag for your Fuchshöhle Hussars?

These are the most striking uniforms you've designed yet -- Beautiful!

Best Regards,

Good catch on the collars, Jean-Louis. No, it wasn't intentional. Actually, the fusiliers have the collar when no one else does because I did it accidentally on one, and the other is a copy of the first with the coat color changed. :>

Hi S.'D.'C.
did you find a suitable casting for the Princess Gertrude's Own: " I'm pondering making this a regiment of dismounted Hussars. As noted elsewhere, the Princess' regiment simply must be pink. I think the violet facings make a nice compliment".
Pehaps if David draws the corresponding template it would help you to be patient...
The best historical precedent is the fusilier of Kermellec-Penhoët's Bretons volontaires, with mirliton & pelisse (but alas without sabretache, & with rather low boots). But the Grassins seem to monopolise the attention of manufacturers....

A very nice selection of uniforms - looking forward to more
