It seems that a lot of Prussian reservists had British style uniforms, Which plastic British 28mm set out there would work
well for these Prussian Reservists?

Personally I would use either the Perry or Victrix Brits.
The Prussians removed most of the British style button-hole lace, so a bit of conversion work would be required.

How about the Warlord Portuguese? They have no chest-lace to remove. You might need to get a command set in more regulation Prussian uniforms.

The 13th through 24th used a variety of uniforms. British supplied was common but think Portuguese colors rather than British. So in your search, think Portuguese style uniforms.

I am not sure how much carryover to the 100 days. We are ralking post 1812 here.

Nash's book on the Prussian Army indicates that many of the "British" uniforms supplied to the Prussian reserve regiments were originally destined for the Portuguese Army so ancientgamers suggestion is best.

By 1815, supposedly, most of these "British" uniforms had been replaced by regulation Prussian stuff. In creating Prussian uniforms, tho, I ignore this info!

why not just buy the Perry metal ones and save yourself a heap of work?
