|Napoleon's Naval Artillery Regiments of the 1813 campaigns. They would mostly fight in their dark blue greatcoats as the weather was exceptionally poor with almost constant heavy rains marking most of the summer and autumn battles.|
Wearing dark blue greatcoats and trousers and black covered shakos with red fringed epaulettes they were often misidentified as Imperial Guardsmen. Their unique carrot-shaped short red plume I modelled with a bit of epoxy putty (green stuff) on the top of the existing round pompon of spare hussar shako heads
The figures are Victrix guardsmen obtained from a gaming buddy who had glued them up but decided not to paint. I was able to remove the original heads and replaced them with spare hussar heads. He did a good job in the posing for a convincing firing line.
