28MM FRENCH NAPOLEONIC LINE INFANTRY 1812-1815The uniform of the line regiments that made up the bulk of napoleons army were basically the same, with some minor differences the only difference in a regiment itself would be the pompons.Sometimes the strapping and flounders on the shako also epaulette’s collars and cuffs flank companies red for grenadiers and yellow /green  for voligeur’s and white for officers and staff and the first four companies dark green, sky blue, orange /pink and violet only senior officers to wear white plumes and red over white for major but no of this is set in stone as I have seen Napoleonic uniforms with all combitions of colours.And… because of supply problems the 1815 campaign the uniform was often just greatcoat and fatigue cap.
