Mainz Infantry Regiment Wildenstein

This four battalion regiment (and 2 grenadier companies) totalled some 2,246 men and was made up by taking men from other Mainz regiments. There is some suggestion that the fourth battalion had red facings and it remained in Erfurt but nonetheless I am fielding in its full strength. It served with the Reichs-army and was rated by Soubise as 'good', but I would judge that only in Reichs-army terms.

I have matched the green to that used by Knotel in his illustration of a grenadier. The figures are again from Crusader and the flags are conjectural.
