Looking for some info regarding the Westphalian infantry uniform circa 1809. Were they wearing shakos or bicornes? French style coat? White, not blue, yes? If shako, then would Essex French infantry (1806-1812) suffice?

Thanks for putting up with a noob/newb!

Excellent, thanks Connard! Trying to find info via Google has brought me to a "neat" site:


Looking at some Brunswick vs. Westphalian scenarios. The Black Band vs. troops in white, would make a different looking game table.

If in 15mm look also to Fantassins'Dutch troops; they were also combined with the Westphalians

If you read the texts at that site, you have to be careful of the automatic translation into English. In the Polish infantry text, in some cases it translated the French for crimson to scarlet. Two very different colors.

I used Calpe Saxons for my Westphalians.
