I want to add some Italians to my French, after advice on the best igures to use, or is it much of a muchness?!!

Use Perry French as a basis and paint them appropriately. Though they are not specifically Italians they are the best on the market.

Bonjour Nick,

The more Italians the better and those of Navy Fower Wun Seven are rather splendid!

I've got some now as well as they actually fought rather well and are handy for a number of scenarios in 1813 including Leipzig.

I like the Perry figures too but less keen on their plastics so opted for Elite instead.

Will try and some piccies to share.

Only to point out that the Italians of " Regno Italico" never adopted the Bardin regulation in 1812, so the uniform remained in the old "shape". The fantastic plastic Perry are not correct for the Italians so you need to use the metal ones with pre 1812 uniform.
