Painted test shots
This regiment was formed in 1813 from the 1st & 2nd Jager Battalions that were originally raised in 1799-1801 period.
They have the green uniform with black facings and yellow lace which was added to the uniform in 1813. I have also painted rear visors to the shako as this was the Austrian style adopted in 1813.
The Light Infantry 1st & 2nd battalions had a similar uniform with light blue facings and white piping and they were formed into the 10th Light Infantry Regiment also in 1813. An 11th Regiment was also formed from the Land Regiment Rifle Corps in 1813, but I cannot find any reference to their uniform details. If you look at my previous painted figures - the Wurttemberg Fusiliers these formed the 1st - 8th Regiments.
Many thanks to Mr. Dave Morris.
