Deep in my Reichsarmee trip, I painted some more regiments of the Palatine-Pfalz- contribution to the Reichsarmee. This was an occasion to dig up my Pengel&Hurt booklets an try to sort out a painting guide.
First of all, the newcomers:
Then, a brief introduction to them: the Regiment Effern
rated "mediocre" by Soubise, it was present to all the campaign without distinction, fighting at Korbitz 1759 and Strehla 1760.
The second unit of the lot is the Garde zu Fuss. Only the 2nd battalion was with the Reichsarmee from 1758, the other two garrisoning Mannheim. Moreover, it seems that from 1757 the fur cap was reserved for the grenadier companies, the other wearing tricorne. I choose to represent the unit as a whole regiment with the license of giving fur caps to everybody.
