14 battalions of line infantry in white (slightly off white, really) and 6 in coloured coats. These include Etranger battalions as well as Grenadiers de France.

I won't add in the various light battalions because, well, they're beneath a gentleman's notice & who cares what coats they wear?

The cavalry are about half: half in white & colours & dragoons in blue or red. Artillerymen, of course, in blue.

Add in the plethora of large, beautiful & vari-coloured flags & my French SYW are a visual delight.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Frederick Supporting Member of TMP writes:

I was just re-organizing my SYW armies and had a thought. For those of us with French SYW armies, what percentage of your infantry are in white coats and what percentage are in coats of a different color? The French had my reckoning about 116 regiments in white coats (including the Walloons and Italians) and about 32 regiments in red or blue (Irish, German, Swiss).
