18th Century Female Infantry

The "Sister" set to the 18th Century female Gun Crew, in the Bodstonian world they are part of the "Purple Roses". More about thier role in Bodstonia here
6 in total, IMHO, it would be good to have a set of just marching bods so that a larger unit could be created.
Commander of the Purple Roses, Rose Tremain

Just a quick explanation.
The Federation of Bodstonia. Whilst it´s based in the 1700´s, this doesn´t actually mean it´s the 1700´s as we all know it. It´s an Imagi-Nation, a parallel universe whose time scale, it´s 1700´s, is  removed from our time scale.
Historical accuracy ? They won´t employ any technology that wasn´t around in the mid 1700´s, but as far as the clothing, housing, transport and customs, these will cover a larger range, drawing on influences from other closely related historical periods.
As far as it is, for me, an excercise in writing a story, putting ideas down in one place and  creating a world, which..if I get the time and inspiration, I will use to create a real book ;-D
