I have one more unit of musketeers to put together. I'm thinking some grey-coated expatriate Scots.

Not every German-style soldier was a snappy-looking Royal retainer. This regiment is just a generic bunch of Germans, possibly having wandered over to Poland in search of employment after the end of the Thirty Years War in 1648. For the sake of aesthetics, I've painted them with a rudimentary uniform in their shared coat color - the Osprey book suggests that musketeer units could wear cloth coats dyed a yellow-ochre, to resemble leather buffcoats.
