The Margravate of Dunkeldorf-Pfühl: Artillery.

The artillery is the most professional body of troops in the Markgraaf's army. Although a relatively small corps it is well armed with 6-pounder cannon for the line battery, 12-pounder cannon and 7" howitzers for the Guard. The image above is for the line battery, Countess Erzebet von Neuman's Honorable Artillery Company. All ordinance is painted blood red.

With such a glamorous uniform for the Line, one wonders what the Guard may look like... (hint, hint...)

Nice uniforms (although I think that those dark yellow facings might accumulate alot of powder stains).

Yes, the dark yellow facings do accumulate a lot of powder stains - but that's what camp followers are there to take care of after the battle. ;)

This will bring up a window that asks (among other things) if you want to delete it permanently . . . you do.

Hope that this helps.
