That's an interesting request and quite a distinctive appearance!  I'll make a note of the suggestion and we'll see what we can do at some point.

The picture by Knotel is based on the famous picture of Andreas Hofer.  I'm not sure it is typical of all Tyrolean insurgents.

Agreed,
although some 'Hoffer' types based on that illustration would add the right touch and flavour for the Tyrol.

Mostly though we'd benefit from a small Insurgency Range of rather generic armed civilians in a mixture of headgear from corsehuts and kobluz to top hats. Bicornes to floppy hats and stocking caps. And a range of jackets from short bolleros to overcoats not dissimilar to the landwehr - in fact such a range would also be good for the 'worst sort of insurrection ' troops as well and should mix in well with Spanish guerillas.

It's worth remembering there were insurgencies all across Europe and the Balkans throughout the wars and many of the forces deployed along the fringes of the main campaigns were little more than ragged militia or armed civilians. I'd recommend not getting too caught up in specific regional dress and keeping the bulk rather generic.

I also think some British marines and Greek Light Infantry would mix well with such a range for the Mediterranean as would armed sailors and naval guns.
