Conti French Cavalry Regiment


This is a Royal Regiment in French service with a rather unusual and dour look to it with it's steel grey coats.
Kronoskaf has nothing to say about the livery worn by it's musicians but there is a clue in the fact that there is an infantry regiment (called 'Conty') where the livery is described. The infantry regiment was 'owned' by
Louis Armand de Bourbon, prince of Conty or Conti and it's drummers wore buff coats faced in blue so I have given the cavalry trumpeter the same colour scheme.

Figures are Font Rank.
