Here are some photos of a couple of the 28mm figures. I really enjoyed painting them!
These figures are painted up as members of the 1st Provisional Croat Regiment attached to Prince Eugene's 4th Army Corps during the invasion of Russia. I utilized F G Hourtelle, Elting/Knötel, and Guy Dempsey as sources for the uniform. Dempsey, in his book Napoleon's Mercenaries, is the only one of the three to mention that 'it is clear that the 3rd Regiment wore green. The evidence to support the conclusion that the 1st, 2nd and 4th Provisional Croation Regiments also had green uniforms is reasonably strong but circumstantial.' Very interesting little factoid! On top of that, both of the illustrated sources I used show the soldiers without any of the shako cords as sculpted on these figures. However, they do look nice and uniform regulations were pretty fast and loose during the period so I rolled with it.
Many thanks to Mr. Epting.
