Should the Prussian Light and Line Uniform 2 be exchanged?
« on: April 09, 2018, 10:47:20 pm »
According to this post http://www.holdfastgame.com/News/Post?p=1041 regarding the upcoming Prussian uniforms, Line Infantry 2 will be Prussian Militia (Landwehr) and the Light Infantry will be the Lützower Freikorps.
Historically speaking the Freikorps never had  a Light Infantry, consisting only of Infantry, Artillery, Cavalry and a few Riflemen.
Seeing as the Lützower Freikorps carries a big meaning for the German unity even today (the German flag took its colors from the Lützower uniform), it would be a shame to see them missused in Holdfast. The militia (Landwehr) on the other hand had a huge detachment of Light Infantry.
My wish would be to see the Lützower Freikorps correctly used as Line Infantry and the Militia as Light Infantry.
What do you guys think about that?

The Freikorps carried the german colours and the students from german universities brought them back in form of the german flag we see today.

Just look at it!^^

Indeed, Freikorps as light Inf is a discussable chocie. Prussia had enough Fusiliers in their Army - in some cases there was not much visible difference between normal musketeer-line inf and Fusilier-light Inf. So I see what the developers try to do - to create some uniform variation within the prussian army (especially importnat during libebattle events for commanders).

Even if we look at it from a gameplay perspective it would make more sense. The French line uniform is blue, the English is red. Therefore making the Prussian (in parts) black would make the factions more distinguishable.
