28mm SYW Austrians: IR 19 Leopold Pálffy

This Hungarian regiment was raised in 1733 and, in both the WAS and SYW, was in the thick of it. It was present at the battles of Chotusitz, Prague, Moy, Breslau, Hochkirch, Kunersdorf and Liegnitz. It seems to have had a colour change from light blue to middle blue and then back to light blue but pinning these dates down is tricky.

The bottom illustration is of Leopold Count Pálffy who founded the regiment and remained it's Inhaber until 1773.
