Converged Grenadiers

 From behind - you'll notice the Leib Grenadier Company has the bag of it's fur cap opver to the right, whie the others have theirs to the left. This is either a singular distinction accorded them as a mark of the status of the regiment or an error on the part of the milliner. You decide.
 From the front, a further distinction of the Leib Regiment is their blue trousers. More commonly, the Alzheimer Foot has white small-clothes.

If the Duchy holds anything in common with His Majesty's troops in St. Maurice, the difference in bag placement may be less a matter of millinery inefficiency and more that of what we could "liberate" from our enemies at the time. A good looking unit all. Well done. - Mike

Agreed! Just the sort of thing to help me wake up this morning. Eager to see more as you add to the SSM collection.

Best Regards,

I'm going with a strong but localized gust of wind, coming down from the mountains. But if it occurred during a famous but now forgotten battle, it might have resulted in a regimental tradition.

Either way they look good.
