Thanks. Bookmarked the site as a reference for painting white uniforms.

Wow, those are great.

I agree with keeping this for reference to white uniforms, always have given me trouble.

True that – you would think with 15 French SYW regiments I would have figure this out, but I still find white uniforms tough to get right

Well, there's a couple of problems.

The regiment wore blue waistcoats, not red.

La Reine did not wear the King's Livery, for the drummers, it wore the Queen's (hence…La Reine), which is a red coat.

The second flag should have white quadrants, not green and black.

So, not La Reine, but very nice figures, well painted otherwise. And I agree, I've also found white uniforms troublesome.

Lovely paint job, and nice flags.

I think their uniforms were more gray/white.

Happy you like them boys…

Thanks Epturner for the data…

The wool was natural white, perhaps more of a cream than gray. I'd pay real money to see anyone host a period regimental flag up with one hand and hold it like that. LoL

So, not La Reine

As per Kronoskaf, waistcoats, flags and musicians' uniforms all appear to be correct for the second battalion in Canada.

I really like the style of painting on the ands and faces.

Have fun.

Eugene Leliepreve made some watercolours that show Soldiers from La Reine in Canadian settings, but with blue waistcoats and for the drummer, the Queen's Livery.

Those are not watercolours shown in the Osprey's either.

I'd recommending using your Google-Fu, since the website's name escapes me.

My understanding about the red waistcoats and drummer's coats was that, as mentioned above, they came from a shipment of replacement clothing sent out for Canada. Which was replaced itself, once available.

I do like the paint job. And the flags are really nice.

The SECOND flag is incorrect.

As I understand it, only the first battalion would have carried a white colonel's colour. Two 'ordonnance' flags would be correct for the second battalion.

Thanks also…
