These marching regular army Prussian Infantry 1813-1815 are very well proportioned and balanced figures with 6 different poses allowing you to build up a column of marching infantry. All have full equipment including the rolled greatcoat and calfskin backpack etc....
My figures are depicted as the 6th Infantry (1st West Prussian) Regiment which had crimson collars/cuffs and with White shoulder straps. This regiment was one of the "Regular" regiments at Waterloo - the others were:
2nd Regiment (1st Pomeranian) White collar/cuffs - White shoulder straps
7th Regiment (2nd West Prussian) Crimson collar/cuffs - Scarlet shoulder straps
9th Regiment (Colberg) White collar/cuffs - Scarlet shoulder straps
10th Regiment (1st Silesian) Lemon Yellow collar/cuffs - White shoulder straps
11th Regiment (2nd Silesian) Lemon Yellow collar/cuffs - Scarlet shoulder straps
So as you can see there is plenty of scope for colour variations on the dark blue coatee uniform. Then you could also choose one of several other Regiments not at Waterloo up to the 12th Regiment plus 2 x Guard Regiments. There were also 12 Reserve Regiments some of whom had a similar uniform.
Great figures and very enjoyable and easy to paint.
Many thanks to Mr. Dave Morris.
