Another month, another update. This is for the early Leib-garde foot, which means I’ve covered just about everything from 1801-1814 available in LPK, along with the Pauline cavalry and line. Still there’s the generals, the L-g. Garrison, the Pauline L-g. (ugh!) and the general chapters on the overall uniform reforms although I don’t expect to get much specific out of the latter.
The L-g. got a good deal simplified, as it turns out the individual regimental lace patterns are an error by Orlov which misled Viskovatov. So I had to prune a good deal of colorful graphics…otherwise there’s confirmation that the L-g. drummers used more lace than the line, and patent leatherwork for the L-g. Jaeger.
