Hungarian Insurrectio

Postby Gavo » Sun Jun 29, 2014 7:52 pm

Did the Field Officers 1809 of the Hungarian Insurrectio wear the Austrian Uniform or did they wear the uniform of the Insurrectio.

Unfortunately I don't have an answer for you; about the only information I could find in the interweb was this... hopefully if can point you in the right direction:

Hi Gavo,

Check out the guy bellows blog (he used David Collins references for his "insurrectio") it could be of help to you...

Thanks Dropbear and Captain, I have checked those two sites out and contacted a Hungarian games site. I thought it would be OK to use a mounted Line officer and paint the uniform blue similar to the site Dropbear posted but the Hungarian gamer has said that the uniform was similar to the Insurrectio infantry uniform.

Now I have to source a 18mm hussar style officer without a sabretache.
