[Song of Drums and Shakos]
Black Brunswickers

I painted the piping in blue.

After some more reading, I recognized that the piping color is wrong, though. The Brunswickers in the peninsular campaign had the blue piping, but as described in the previous post the miniatures I have are the wrong ones for the setting. The ones I have a are rather for Quatre-Bas or Waterloo. So I repainted the piping to green, making the minis part of the 2nd line batallion.

The line infantry had the pompon in yellow on the bottom and blue on the top (light infantry in reversed order). Colors used:
