    I think that Swedish Early Grenadiers look correctly. Look in EW's sources:

    MITRE!! not mithras-get your english straight

    (but seriously, its mitre; I mentioned it in another thread)

    actually, knoetel's reconstruction is ok IIRC, and so is osprey's (I prefer knoetel's reconstruction BTW). evidently two types were used, though I'm not sure how it worked on a regimental basis. I know that in the SYW, the one shown in knoetel's plate (brass front with a blue bad) was the correct one, though it was covered by a black waxed canvas to avoid confusion with the prussian mitres (also brass [or iron])

    no its not close-while the two are cognates, they sound little alike.

    That pikemans hat is not perfectly correct either, as the hat was regimental and the treecorne was more normal as regimental hat than the(in Swedish, as I don't know the English word) "Karpus" on the picture.

    Herr Lindstrom, are you a Swede, a Dane or a Dutchman?

    I think that my nationality has been shown in my signature

    he's Danish. why do you think he voted against the Ottomans being included?

    WT...?

    these are palace guards (since we ARE dealing with the 18th century), not field mercenaries. Depending on who they are serving, whether spain, France, or the papal states, they will, respectively, wear dark blue or red. also, the uniform would have been in the typical army cuts, again depending on nationality.
