IR-3 Prinz Geoffrey

The Prinz's own Regiment IR-3 Prinz Geoffrey. The regiment has lapel, cuffs and turnbacks in the Prinz's favorite color Hunter Green. The coat is in the "traditional" Cavenderia Cornflower Blue with red stock, white undercoat and silver buttons. The pompom is Green with a hommage to Lady Sarafina's Regiment, IR-1, with a light blue top. The grenadiers of the regiment wear the regular infantry uniform with bearskin hats with a yellow and silver lined bag.
I have painted the very first Cavenderia Infantryman from IR-1 Die Dame's FuB and will have pictures up shortly. I am developing a history and geographical location for Cavenderia and will post the history of the Irish Catholic exiles who fled the British Catholic purge and managed to carve out a small dutchy on the continent. I have started toying with the idea of regimental or a national flag and will begin displaying my ideas in a future blog.

A nice-looking uniform . . . and different from the first two . . . of course we want photos of painted troops too.

A very nice uniform, and it sounds like you've got some good stuff going on the background front as well. I look forward to more.

I will "stay tuned" for further developments and photos! :-)

Very promising! But why a 'future' blog, why not on this very one?
Looking eagerly forward for future instalments!
