The Netherlands Militia and Belgian infantry painted as British infantry. The Netherlands militia and infantry from Belgium at Waterloo wore similar uniforms to the British line. The militia's shakos have been changed to look like British stovepipe shakos and the Belgian infantry wear the 'Belgic' style shako introduced in the British army in 1812. The ammo pouch and waterbottle is the same and the front of the uniform has been changed with the addition of white stripes to make it look like the British. These men work well with the Hat British light infantry set the only difference being the shoulder 'wings' making them flank companies.
Many thanks to Mr. Kelsall.
