28mm SYW French: Noailles Cavalry

Another regiment of Horse done. This is the 8th out of the nine planned.

As for the musician, the house of Noailles' coat of arms was red-yellow so the coat might have been a combination of those two colours. Equally, it might not. There are no sources and this is an 'educated' guess.

28mm SYW French: Henrichemont Cavalry


I'm slowly plodding my way through these French cavalry regiments and this unit finishes my second brigade and the right wing.

28mm SYW French: Conti Cavalry

This was a 'Prince de Sang' Regiment as the Conde-Conti family was a part of the larger Bourbon family. They used their own livery of sand with light blue as per the infantry drummer picture attached.

This is the 6th regiment finished for my French army.
