Two answers are sought: a) conversions from AB; b) non AB options, including conversions.

New to the scale, but intrigued to see what people do regarding AB gaps. Many thanks.

I would simply use the AB Saxon line infantry musketers for fusiliers, Saxon grenadiers (with painted on epaulettes) for Voltigeurs and DoW Grenadiers in bearskin for grenadiers. Actually, this is what I am planning to do anyway;)

Thanks Dr Jekyll. I left out that I was looking at 1812 which you picked up on. I also left out the possible complication of the third regiment which some say had a full dress 1809 uniform, but which doubts exist.

Will go with your suggestion. Many thanks.

Dr Jekyll another option for the voltigeurs I guess would be the Eureka french in Bardin uniforms.
Would they mix well in the same unit?
Thanks in advance.
