I found this website to be very useful: http://www.kronoskaf.com/syw/index.php?title=Main_Page

A lot of the germanic nations can just use Prussian uniforms or some use British just in different colourings.

You will notice from illustrations that with the infantry, by and large differ in the cut of the coat and the type of tricorn (ie flat Prussian or the usual more pronounced front corner). Cavalry types it tends to be headgear, eg there were two Swedish hussar regiments - one wore a Prussian style mirliton whilst the other wore an Austrian style busby.

We used some of the other early 18th C ranges too - the Swedes in the GNW range were fine for us for SYW stuff too.
