1813 Saxon Infantry
Here is a simple conversion of French Light Infantry (HaT 8042) into Saxon Line Infantry from 1813. The epaulettes and plumes were removed with a sharp knife and shako covers added with glue. They have been painted with red facings as the 1st Battalion of the 1st (Koenig) Regiment.
A less useful pose from the French Light Infantry was turned into a standard bearer and another advancing pose with a sharp knife and hot water.
Saxon infantry advance, as Kuirassiers from the Leib and Zastrow Regiments charge past in the background.
Good information on Saxon uniforms can be found at the following sites:
