British Line Regimets Schematic

I started work on an schematic type of reference on similar lines of the classic charts of de Bosset and Hamilton Smith.

I don't know if these charts (Infantry Regiments only) will be of use but I thought I would post them for your perusal. I used all the same references as C.E Franklin but also drawing on my extensive library of contemporary illustrations, portraits etc, and of course, Richard Cannon, W.Y Carman and C.P Lawson, who's cartouches were the template that I used but with a little adaptation.

If anyone has any questions pertaining my work, please don't hesitate to ask questions or indeed to highlight any errors you see.

I hope soon to be able to do similar work pertaining cavalry, volunteer foot and cavalry regiments.








This last picture is of the colour palette used.

Paul, thanks for these.

Does this represent a snapshot of a particular date or period? The three Rifle units, suggest a date circa 1800 although the combination of white and regimental lace perhaps indicates a more generalised survey of the later C18th/early C19th.

I have posted this same reply on the TMP site:

Quote:
Well as you know, the lace detail of many regiments changed after 1812 so (in general) I have stuck to the lace pattern up to that date. The changes to a few regiments from line to Royal came about in 1812. The 60th thing is just a depiction of both battalions compared to the red coated battalions of that regiment.

The Kilt then trouser (1809) transition is depicted where you see half tartan half buff/white in that section of the cartouche and kilted regiments are depicted where the tartan is shown right up to the lace section with a thick black border demarcation line.

So yes, It's a general survey. If I had tried to show all variations and changes individually, 'Id still be working on it. Anyway, It's for wargamers really and I suppose most of the finer details don't really matter to them seeing as they work mainly up to 28/30mm.

Anyone working on 54mm and above and who need lace detail for after 1812 can always ask and I will supply....

Thanks for the interest jf'
