NYW French Infantry regt Greder


The first of Richard's French Nine Years War Infantry regiments, now in my collection. Regt Greder who were raised in 1680. They fought in many of the battles during the Nine Years War including Walcourt, Fleurs, Mons, Leuze, Steenkirke, Neerwinden, Charleroi, Brussels and d'Ath . The unitis the German Greder and is not to be confused with the Swiss regt of the same name.
The flags are from Warflag and as per usual the figures are from Essex Miniatures.

  8. The light blue lined yellow coat produces a striking color combination. Add in the flags and this is a very handsome regiment.
