Die Hesse‘ komme'! (again) Garde Grenadiers von Linsingen

Haven't posted for a while, sorry a lot of work and a strained right hand forced a pause upon me.
After some additional Hessian Jäger, I (nearly) finished my Garde Grenadier regiment von Linsingen.
A combined Grenadier units with parts of the 1st and 2nd Hessian Grenadier Garde Regiment as well as the Leib Regiment and the von Mirbach Musketeers Regiment. They fought at Long Island, White Plains, Brandywine, Germantown Fort Mercer and finally Monmouth (amongst others).
I tried to interpret the different units with different small clothes from old watercolours and a yellow might just been a very light buff, but as I said - its my interpretation.

(fr. l. to r.) 1st Garde, Leib, Mirbach and 2nd Garde


  1. Michael, I'm glad to see you back with paintings. Next time be careful with your hands. Perfect job!

    1. Thanks Bart, It's not completely gone, but its hard to resist hills of lead.
