The white French-style uniforms were faced light green. The shako wore a red cockade and shako plate with King Joseph-Napoleon initials. Watching the pictures, the 2º battalion of the regiment running to the fields of Borodino 7, September,1812. Some words about the figures: the Hat French Infantry 1812 are superb, don't need conversions in this work. I love making use of old plastic figures in this work. Hat Cossacks, Hat Russian Artillery, the Airfix French artillery and ESCI Russian grenadiers. Some sources: "Uniforms of 1812, The retreat of Moscow" by Philip Haythornthwaite and Michael Chapell. edit Blandford Press. "Wargames, soldados y estrategia" issue Nº24. "Eurouniformes" issue Nº5.
Cheers. !Salud a todos y hasta pronto!.
