You might also recall that I mentioned the Loewendahl regiment (shown above) in particular thanks to its relatively simple uniform, which I think might lend itself to more rapid painting than is usually the case here at Stollen Central. Fine and dandy. I put the thought of all this on a mental back burner and forgot about it for several months.
But a few days ago, I began thinking ahead to the next few units in the ol' painting queue. To my frustration, it seemed difficult to unearth any information about the Loewendahl Regiment's regimental standard, something I lamented here. Well, it's amazing the things you can accomplish at the computer with a dozing baby in your lap. Look what I found by trawling the internet further over the weekend:
The above provides a nice excuse to paint a less common unit in fairly simple uniforms with a pretty flag. Since my Loewendahl Regiment will no longer be in French service, they will just carry their regimental standard, without the white Colonel's color. But I'm puting the cart before the horse. Still a few things to paint on my table before I can move onto this unit with a clear conscience. Charge!
