I am looking for painting guides for Italian Generals and aides. I think there used to be one on the old histofig site. Does anybody still have it?

Which conflict?

All done.
My first thoughts were- mid Empire- take French, change to green, including cockades, then carry on.
About the only (French National) blue to be seen will be ADC's and liaison officers, and the Garde Roiale horse company.

I think Eugene wore a French GdDs Blue uniform at Borodino, while his staff wore a mix of French and Italian uniforms depending on their origin.
