On the 15th August 1689, King Christian V of Denmark signed a treaty with William III of England to hire out 7,000 Danes. They took an oath of faithfulness to William and to serve for the duration of the war, providing Denmark wasn't attacked itself. The Danes were to be under the command of an English officers although Danish Lieutenant-Generals and Major-Generals were to be present at councils of war.
The Commander of the Danish force was the Duke of Wurtemburg, under him the Marquis de la Forest (or de la Force) the Cavalry commander and Julius Ernst von Tettau, in command of the foot.
The Danish Footguard or the Garden til Fods were led by Wurtemburg himself.
The Guards fought in nearly every of the battle of the war including the Battle of the Boyne, where they had 698 active fighting men all armed with a flintlock musket, the pike being abolished in 1689. Their uniform is stated to be a straw yellow coat with red cuffs. Clarence at Quindia Studios, II and Barry at The League of Augsberg have gone for the lighter straw colour as in the Osprey book "Battle of the Boyne". I've gone for a slightly yellower colour as did Pete at Irish Armies of James , with his figures. I would have liked to use a brighter yellow, but I'm quite happy with how these turned out.
Once again the figures are from Essex's 15mm range and the bases are from Warbases, the flags were pure conjecture and were made back in November last year.
