Weren't the Dutch neutral in SYW? Earlier in the 18th century the artillery carriages were red, with black ironwork. I can't find info on uniforms, but there is some on the uniforms in the Revolutionary wars, when infantry seem to have worn blue coats: PDF link

Kronoskaf does have info on Brunswick troops, but not on artillery carriages. Possibly same as Prussia i.e blue, as some of the minor German states did follow Prussian practice.

I was leaning toward copying prussian carriages for Brunswick, technically the Dutch are for Fontenoy, not really SYW.

Thanks for your help!

Glad to be of a little assistance.

Found this book, which might cover WAS.

I've got the Dutch carriages brick read for the French Revolution, so if someone else has that before your period, a reasonable guess that they didn't change, then change back.

SYW Dutch artillery wore dark hlue coat with red cuffs lapels and turnbacks. Officers had white small clothes and breeches. Other ranks red small clothes and breeches. White belts.
