I just thought I should point this out. The tartan you have got for the 93rd is incorrect. They wore a Government 1A tartan which was a lighter version of the normal Black Watch. The RRS still wear it today. Just thought I would point it. I am by no means complaining. If anything a like it more as it resembles my clan tartan (Gunn).

Thank you very much! I'm trying to make my mod as historically accurate as possibe, so I appreciate such corrections.
I've fixed it, hope it is right


Thats looks very good. One other thing. The 93rd have yellow epaulettes. I can't see in the pictures but I assume judging from the collar and cuffs they are.

Thank you again. On this screenshot it is flank company uniform, they have wings and shoulder straps instead of epaulettes. I've made both flank and central companies uniform, just in case - maybe I'll use them in singleplayer for levelling up units, in multiplayer mod there will be either central either flank company uniform.

British drummer (19th Regiment of Foot)

French drummer (7e regiment de ligne)

Russian drummer (Владимирский пехотный полк)

The work on British drummers  took far longer time than I hoped - each British regiment had their own lacing pattern and painting on the drums, so research took couple of months and even some money for books about uniform. And even with all that I had to use just one picture of 19th regiment drummer (because there is no information about this particular regiment's drummers), so it is more how this drummer could look like. If anyone has more information of 19th regiment of foot drummer's lacings and drum in mid XIX century - I'll appreciate new info:)
Many thanks to  Mick’s Mick’s Miniatures and Major Shanks of the 42nd for provided information.

In the same time French and Russian drummers took couple of days of research and modelling due to standartized patterns.

Looking good! Any estimate on when we’d be able to play this ?

Thank you! Unfortunatelly, can't promise anything - I thought I nearly completed release alpha version of the mod, but "finishing touches" take longer than expected and there is more to do that I thought. I really want to release this mod as soon as possible, but I want to release it in proper condition :)

Drummer of 23 Regiment of Foot (Royal Welsh Fusiliers)

Spoiler




[close]

There is more information on this drummer's uniform, because a coatee of a drummer and a side drum of RWF of that period survived (I'm adding their photos in case someone is interested, because I've spent good amount of time researching this, it's not easy to find such information, unfortunately)

Drummer of 93rd (Sutherland Highlanders) Regiment of Foot (this regiment was the Thin Red Line at Balaklava)

This is how the drummer could look like, because I found only this image of 93rd regiment's drummers' uniform of Crimean War period

Release is sooner with every day, because every day I make something for the mod to release the mod as soon as possible :)
