11-B de la Chevallerie SYW Hanoverian Foot

Numbered as 11B in the Hanoverian system, this regiment, according to Kronskaf (see link on the right) had all yellow facings. But further reading of the description
"N.B.: several other sources, like the Brauer Knötel plates, depict this uniform with straw yellow and green as distinctive colour (straw yellow lapels, straw yellow cuffs, green turnbacks and green waistcoat). The uniform seems to have changed during the war." allowed me to paint green turnbacks and waistcoats which makes for quite a colourful unit. Figures by Crusader. The buildings (before you ask!) were all bought on eBay from a guy in England who seems to have ceased trading - sadly.
