I note that the “greens” for the new Hesse-Darmstadt 10mm range by Pendraken  for the 1809 Austrian Campaign have artillerymen in bicornes. I am a bit puzzled, the general consensus seems to have artillery in shakos. Rawkins says that distribution of shakos to the artillery started in 1807 and was complete by 1808. The 1809 Knotel plate shows shakos and John Gills “With Eagles to Glory” also  states the use of shakos. In contrast I can find no references to bicornes .
I would welcome advice.
