It's a right bind to find out just what was painted because there is a dearth of information on the subject. Even accurate info of what musicians uniform of many line regiments looked like (including that of the 48th), is as scarce as hens teeth.

Hi Paul, thanks for this information!

I found this website with pictures of various British regimental drums.
http://brtdesignportfolio.com/88th/website/48thfoot.htm

I wonder whether the cypher on the drum depicted here is realistic (these seem to be re-enactors pics). best,

It's your call! I would like to know where they got the Information on the type of lace/uniform that the 48th drummer wore, as there isn't any

Mind you, the cipher on the 48th drum is pretty bog standard. the markings on the drum as a whole I would guess, is as good a 'guess', as anyone else. Would the cipher be in black, or would it be in gold Would the design have followed that on the officers breast plate????

And finally, If you look through the regiments on that site, you will see that the uniforms cover the period of the American and Napoleonic wars and a lot changes in 25 years.

Sorry if this post is hard to understand as I am just getting over a rather terrible Migraine attack that frazzles the brain for quite a while and which was violent enough for me to want to end it all and if I had had a loaded pistol near to hand...well, I wouldn't be posting this now would I!

Thanks Paul, you gave me some good pointers there, and I had not realised the website covered the American wars too!
Hope your headache is better today

Mr Captain William Siborne’s “Small” & "Large" Waterloo Models

Here’s a wonderful and brilliant little collection of pictures that I have been searching and searching for, for what feels like a very, very long lifetime!

Mr Captain William Siborne’s “Small” Waterloo Model:

Siborne's Small Model Information Plaque.jpg

Siborne's Small Model La Haye Sainte East.jpg

Siborne's Small Model La Haye Sainte From Above.jpg

Siborne's Small Model La Haye Sainte Interior.jpg

Siborne's Small Model La Haye Sainte Looking North.jpg

Siborne's Small Model La Haye Sainte Southwest View.jpg

I have only provided the following nine best pictures (in my very humble opinion), but don’t worry; more are available, to those more fanatical than I, via the following two links:

http://wargaming.info/tag/la-haye-sainte/

http://www.horse-and-musket.com/hors...Diorama.html#1

And for those of you who would also like a sample of the very same Historical Man’s most wonderful and brilliant “Waterloo” work, only on a very much larger scale, then here’s a link to that subject too, just for good measure:

http://ilovewargameing.21.forumer.co...opic.php?t=467

And our very own:

http://www.armchairgeneral.com/forum...=116179&page=4

I trust many of you will enjoy…..

Hi evebody!

I need help finding some information on the uniforms and equipment of French soldiers in the Franco Prussian war.

I will use this information to sculpt a miniature 54mm based on the figure below.





If someone can help me with information regarding the uniform worn by the soldier's photo, his rank and what equipment was used by him would help me a lot.

Thank you in advance for your help.


Regards
