France: Swiss Regiment No 90 from Zurich

This regiment No 90 is one of the famous Swiss regiments fighting in the services of Louis XV., garrisoned mostly in the western part of Germany and fighting at Hastenbeck and Minden. But this is not the reason why I decided to paint them; it´s more to bear in remembrance the city of Zurich, where we lived for several years. The regiment was recruited primarly in the small villages in the canton and in the city of Zurich.
It´s also a nice colour aspect in the mainly white coated french army.
The figures are from Sash&Saber, the flags self-done, but basing on the great artwork of Arnaud Brunel and his site drapeaux.org. I could take his flags as base and transformed them to adapt then to our formate and effects.
