I just think about Hanoverian SYW grenadiers. It would be very easy to make such figure. Receipt:
take a head of Prussian grenadier and attach it to Hanoverian infantrist body - done!!!
I could probably convert such a figit myself  but not in sufficient numbers.
Leon, if someone, maybe me  Smiley, made such a master fig, would you add it to the catalogue?

Yeah, no problem, if you fancied doing it?  You'd need to drill and pin the head in place, superglue wouldn't be strong enough on it's own.  Pop me an email if you're interested and we'll get something sent over to you.

Wouldn't it be easier to put a mustache and queue on to a British grenadier?

No. As far as I know they had Prussian style caps, not British.

Hmm. I made some research on these. I know there were some differences between Prussian and British grenadier mitres, but I cant say exactly what they are. In literature Hanoverian mitres are usually described as "Prussian in British pattern" whatever it means.
There was a moment I was considering to follow Clibinarium's advice (thanks Clib), but then I noticed another differences between British-Hanoverian grenadier uniforms. British grenadiers mostly had laces shoulder wings (nicely portreyed on Pendraken figures) and Hanoverian had none. And the braids: British were hidden under the headgear, Hanoverian swang freely.
Can anyone advise me on exact mitres differences?

Militarily, they would come in different styles. The "German" style being a cone shaped structure completely embroidered with cloth, the "Russian" style consisting of a tall brass plate atop of a leather cap with a peak at the rear and the "British" style being a tall cloth front-plate forward of a smaller red cap, lined in white.
The above is from wikipedia but sums up rahter well, the basic different styles of a mitre at the time.
