@ PANGI Mmh... That's a difficult call to make. Still, I would go with Kronoscaf, their sources seem as accurate as it can be. Also, their uniforms are per a 1759 book, while those from the NYPL are from the early 1760's. Things can change really fast: the "new" reorganized French army of 1762 wears...

I'll wait to see yours before doing more work :D

It looks like several regiments have pants of the same colours as the regimental facings (blue or red). Maybe you could add that?

"Cocky" as "proud": the guy is wearing as much clothes and equipment as possible, but for no real use in wilderness warfare ;) I won't be able to say much about the Spaniards, they're out of my field.

You never stop, do you? They look great! Although I kind of liked the grenadier with white gaiters. It emphasized on their elite status. Sort of like Napoleon's imperial guard who went into battle wearing white gloves. But they probably wore such brown gaiters at some point too, so I'll just shut up...

That sounds interesting. Unfortunately, I'm a single player addict, and although I might try PBEM sometime this would be too much of a stretch for me.

Good luck anyway!

Blue was indeed commonly used. Still, there were red, brown and green coats for provincial units throughout the war, as well as units that didn't have any special uniform due to the lack of funding for them. You're right, the Virginians were issued blue coats in 1755. As for the absence of gaiters i...

... and the provincial model you chose is that of late Washington's Virginians (BTW the early unit, in 1754, wore red coats). As it is now, there is only so much we can do without having to modify the game database. And provincials in blue make them easily distinct from British regulars. And the mar...

That's some heavy reading you're tackling here :D
For what I remember, Shirley's and Peperell's wore redcoats, being early provincial regulars. Do they use the provincial blue uniform in game?

I'm assuming there are no gaiters because it's mainly an on-board duty, right?

if i understand good there weren't any marine corps during peace years until 1755 so i suppose after canceling in 1748 they had to be redressed in 1755. You're spot on! I hadn't thought about that.

I was going to leave it to Hobbes, but I guess I can jump in. 18th Century French army uniform were indeed "white". But not of plain bright white, and not always white either.

@ Hobbes As PANGI said, the easy way to do for the 2 other files is simply a resize / cut to the right dimension of the one already done. The procedure is identical in Photoshop and The Gimp. Do you need a hand? EDIT: last one... http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u315/Jafuet/town_williekilt.png ......

As far as I know, the 42nd was still wearing kilts during the Bushy Run campaign and the following Cherokee uprising in the South. Officers reports mention that after several weeks spent in the wilderness, a lot of men would be left with a rag in place of their once flamboyant kilt, while several ot...
