Good morning Gentlemen.
I'm looking for a couple of proxies for some esoteric Napoleonic units.
Bavarian Landwehr/National units
Are there many units with tea cosies on their heads?
Any suggestions of suitable proxies in the Pendraken ranges gratefully accepted.
The Bavarian in a top hat would be a simple conversion from a Shako, but the long coat. Did the unit use great coats, in which case convert shako, and coat will hide the jacket. Cavalry, no idea.
Austrian landweher might be an easier conversion - corsehut to top hat is probably a bit easier and they are already in a thigh length coat

My alternative is this ...
