28mm Palatinate: Infantry Regiment Osten 1st and 2nd battalions

Sorry I have posted very little recently but I have been busy with other projects and now I am back in my prefered period.

This regiment was part of the Subsidienkorps, the Palatine auxillary corps that served with the French in the SYW. I plan to paint a full division of eight or nine battalions to serve with my French. Figures are from Black Hussar although a Crusader has snook into the ranks.

Flags were very generously sent to me by Frederic Aubert and they are very pretty.

These troops, largely formed from Protestants, were uneasy allies of their paymasters.
