On my last post Rob made a point about the British rifleman figure perhaps holding a musket as it was too long for a Baker rifle.
This has got me thinking about my plan to use these figures and some other minifigs 20mm I have.
The figures all have Stove Pipe shakos and I have mussed about using them as Prussian Reserves.
Here is how a battalion would look.
I would perhaps need to add bayonets, at least to the front rank figures, as Prussians always had them attached.
As these figures have shoulder wings they could be used as the 1st battalion 9th Reserve Infantry , 21st Infantry Regiment in 1815.
The picture is from Knotel however they would look rather good with white belts rather than black. Artistic licence perhaps
If I go down this route then I will wait to see if I can get some HH Riflemen on ebay. In the Interim my British skirmishers will be provided by the 51st (2nd Yorkshire West Riding) Regiment using these, rather odd looking Garrison Figures.
As I live in West Yorkshire it seems appropriate to do this unit. I have also realised the regimental museum is located in Doncaster.
