The uniform on the right represents, in cut, what the Mordians would look like without any kit on (this is a Prussian 19th Century tunic). I really like the double breasted cut, and obvious colour modifications this might serve as an illustration for the 'stand-down' uniform.
I really like using real-world photos to illustrate things where possible, as it adds a level of realism you can't otherwise get with just artwork.
And I can't draw.
I plan to have a full-colour gallery of uniforms as an appendix to my fluff document, in the same sort of way that Osprey do. As an aside, Opsrey books are a great starting point for fluff and you can copy the headings and get a good feel for the structure of what a fluff document should include. For my part, a lot of the organisation and doctrine is taken from German WW1, and the Army Handbook has been an invaluable resource for this.
A few days ago I put up some officer's insignia plates, and I've finally got round to doing some NCOs as well. These are okay, but I might re-do them at some point, as they resemble very closely the WW2 German insignia they are derived from. It's good to be inspired, but I don't want to end up just doing an army that is a total copy off a real-world army, so much so that you can't tell the difference.
The first three are 'on-table' ranks, so senior Guardsmen to Sergeant/Veteran Sergeant, whereas the last three are sergeant-major ranks and so are more like orderlies than fighting soldiers. They are sewn on as separate patches, hence the (deliberate) higgledy-piggledy appearance. As I say they may change in future, but I now have a working approximation to go off. And something to paint on my models.
So, that's my current project. Soon we are having a big games night, so expect pics and battle reports by the end of the week!
