The Hanoverian infantry have been painted to conform with their new regimental details. All units wore straw coloured breeches, so that was my first task; the change from red to straw colour.
Some changes proved less a problem as these corresponded with the British units from which they came from. The majority of my British troops wore either yellow, buff or green facings which were similar to Hanoverian requirements.
There were a few oddities that certainly would compete with a Harlequin dress at an Italian carnival festival, but luckily these were few.
Lastly, like their British counterpart, Hannover also converged their grenadiers into temporary battalions. Hannover fielded three such units and these need to be ordered on Blue Moon (Old Glory UK) in a week or two.
Of the seven brigades listed below some show only two battalions of Hanoverian. These do not reflect the entire brigade strength as they list troops from Hesse-Kassel or Brunswick.

I add four or five regimental flags to the Hanoverians and two colonel colours for the Hanoverian Generals Zastrow and Kielmansegg. The flag here is of a colonel’s flag for Hanover. (Kronoskaf.com/Hannover)
