Historical Icons for teamspeak!
THIS THREAD WILL KEEP BEING UPDATED
So after looking around I noticed nobody really had any decent 16x16 historical icons so I've gone and made some. Feel free to help yourself to them
I will be taking requests for other nation's and some regiment icons but can not promise I can deliver ie. Russia and Austria I can't find any real historical reference for their ranks. To apply simple put in these details
Nation:Please do say if your regiment begins to use these! It took a lot of time making these and I'd love to know who chooses to use them.The United Kingdom
Reference material: *required (can be images or links, use spoilers!)
The British Lieutenant and Ensign shared the same shoulder epaulettes and the Captain is denoted by his tassels being thicker then the Lieutenant and Ensign's ones. The Company officer ones are not for all regiments, many had different versions due to different facings or other reasons. Some regiments has silver officer epaulettes.
Many Regiment used silver epaulettes instead of gold. Why they did I have no idea.
There was also a Colour Sergeant for Rifles.
Contrary to the belief of most people on here Staff Corporal and such where ranks only used by the horse gurads. Sergeant and such was used by most Cavalry regiments
There is no real denotation of Company that can be used for all regiment, due to them all having different facings, aside from the plum for most regiments but here are some other variants. The highland one are the small bit holding the plum in place and for many it is also the cross belt.
Not all regiments used the silver officer cross belt buckle.France
Now the Chef de Bataillon and Colonel share the same icon in this because a half epaulette would look out of place. The Colonel had two full epaulettes on his shoulders whilst the Chef de Bataillon had one full one on his left shoulder and a half one (Just the body no tassels) on his right.
The Caporal-Fourrier was a pain as well. The extra stripe was worn just bellow the shoulder whilst the chevrons where at the hem of the selves.
Most NCO ranks have either a chevron version or a stripe version. Not all though, like the Hussards.
I've thrown in the service stripes as a bonus. The ranks went Soldat to Caporal there was no in between so I recommend using the service stripes as SoD and SoP is you use them.
I've left the plates blank as a kind of template so people using them can put their regimental number into them. If you want me to do it for you just drop a note on the thread and I'll get it done.
If you can't tell the difference between the Chef de Bataillon and Colonel an easier way is to use the plums uses the officers to spot them at greater distances if you couldn't see their epaulettes.
Chasseurs à Cheval used the same plums as the Hussards but the 4, 5 and 6ème of the Hussards become the 5, 6 and 7ème of the Chasseurs.Prussia
It was clear when looking these up that Prussian soldiers would have had a hard time telling officers apart. If you'd like your icon coloured to the correct Prussian region do ask.
Junior Officer stands for Oberleutnant, Leutnant and Hauptmann
Senior Officer stands for Major, Oberstleutnant and Oberst
