The 64th Regiment

The uniform plate pictured below is not meant to be a historical statement of any kind, it is (metaphorically speaking) merely my research line in the sand. The place I presume most model painters must reach before beginning any new project. This is where available time, divided by research material to hand, multiplied by figures purchased equals what the finished unit will look like. My personal preference in this regard veers wildly towards (dare I say it) the Hollywood look when it comes to painting armies of the horse and musket period.

▲Uniform Plate Notes▲

The plate above depicts both the long and (I believe) more common cut down versions of the coat worn by the British soldiers. The Drummer’s facing and coat colours are reversed although for reasons unknown I chose to forget this detail when painting the 64th. Officers Gorgets, oval belt plates and epaulettes should match the regimental button colour which in this case is gold or “yellow metal”. Grenadier Officers wore an epaulette each shoulder while they appeared only on the right shoulder of centre company officers. Troops of the line all had pewter buttons.
