Wittenberg - Palace Guard prepare for duty..

The palace guard on parade outside their barracks, the officers check all is ready - it is the first day with their new uniforms. Men with spontoons are allocated to posts in the palace, while those armed with muskets patrol the grounds or man the gates.

The officers discuss the business of the day...
You'll see them on duty around the palace ...

[figs: Irregular Miniatures austrian ncos/officer plus Foundry prussian grenadiers with mitres swapped to tricornes; uniform based on that of the Duchy of Saxony's 'swiss guard' of the 1740's]


  1. They look good. I like that combination of colors; very nice indeed.

  2. Agree with the above but the irregular dudes look nice than Foudry.... Hmmm might have to have a closer look at Ian s stuff

  3. Nicely turned out body of guardsmen. Not a topic one sees often, but all the more interesting for that.
