In our "Vorwärts" Series, today we present the Franconian Regiment Varell. There's a bit of a story behind my choice of uniform as you can see that it differs from the one shown in the Kronoskaf file. The file mentions that the lads might have worn yellow waistcoats, me being more of an arty-farter then a stickler for authenticity, I seized the opportunity. Some years ago I was a vey avid "Cossacks" gamer. This is a PC RTS game in which you can fight your way through 18th century Europe. Now each nation had it's own specialty troops and then the rest were regulars that were common to everyone. The Saxons had a grenadier type and they wore blue with yellow uniforms. I always wanted to paint a regiment like that; now that opportunity came.
Hope you like em even if they are not entirely accurate...
