When I painted my generals( Prussian and Russian, found pictures of many on the web so as to get the spirt, if only in 15mm of them.

For instance



Nash writes full dress blue kollet, faced in scarlet, in field grey trowsers, peaked schurmutze, ark blue liebrock or uberrockgrey for infantry generals dark blue for cavalry and artillery. Bicornes pictured. Only Colonels in chief wear regimental uniforms and usually only royal family

If you are referring to the commanders of the individual regiments, then I see no reason why they would not be clad in the prescribed uniforms for officers.

My venerable copy of Nash's book on Prussian uniforms (Nash, David; The Prussian Army 1808-1815, 1972, Almark Publications) describes a standard officers' full dress, plus a single-breasted coat (Interimsrock). He describes shakos with gold banding around the top and bicornes for undress wear; whilst not mentioned, I imagine that quite a few peaked Feldmutze got worn for comfort too.

Vielen dank. So I can use Blue Moon bicorne types.

You could chose the Colonel von Schwerin detached from the Garde du Corps, being a brigade commander in 1815, wearing his dark blue interims coat with hat but with Carde du Corps saddle cloth, shabraque and holster cover.
