Some info about Muscovites:
1. New type (soldats , reiters and dragoons)
– in 1661 Michał Obuchowicz, who was at that time prisoner in Moscow, noticed regiments of soldats on parade. First was dressed in green, second in red, third in purple. It is important to point out though, that they were there to meet envoys of the emperor Leopold I, so were dressed for a show. In 1667 Polish envoys in Moscow noticed five regiments of soldats: each had uniforms in different colours but all soldiers had newly-issued yellow shoes.
In general though, each soldier of ‘New Type’ troops (so soldats, dragoons and reiters) were dressed in their own clothes, so even on company level it should be total mix of colours. Main ones should be different (50?) shades of grey, brown, blue and green (all in rather grey shade, as they were cheap cloth). Same colours should be use for servant cossacks
, with grey and brown being the main one.
Two ‘chosen’ regiments of infantry (one created in 1656 and one in 1657) were better equipped:
- first squadron of the first regiment – red
- second squadron of the first regiment – dark green
- first squadron of the second regiment – blue
- second squadron of the second regiment - yellow
– 14 different prikaz from Palmquist are from 1674 but should give you an idea

In 1660 Polish spies notice that half of streltsy in Khovansky’s army were dressed in red, other half in green.
3. Boyars (sons and Dvorians)
– you can use mix of colours that I suggested with Polish/Lithuanian hussars and cossack style cavalry. They were always trying to show off and take their best clothes, best weapons and best horses… Boyar sons could though use all those ‘cheap’ colours like grey and brown, as many of them were rather poor and couldn’t afford expensive clothes.
