Westphalian foot battery and horse battery. 1/72. Art Miniaturen.

The foot gunners' uniform is very similar to the French, while there is conflicting evidence of whether the HA gunners had hussar breeches or trousers in 1813. I've used the Art M foot and horse figures in each instance. The train riders in a more grey than grey/blue. Plus a plume for the HA riders which distinguishes them from the foot but is not necessarily correct. Chances are by 1813 they would all be in covered shako, but where is the fun in that? 3 model guns for the foot and two for the horse...again mainly to help players distinguish between the two in the heat of a battle and make it marginally easier for the HA to manoeuvre. Guns and limbers in grey. (blue for the Westphailian Guard)
