What about Fife and Drum miniatures? Can't you use the 7 years war french artillerists from their Minden 7YW line?

No. The uniform is completely different.
If I'm going to fake it, I'll use generic British/Continental artillerists.

One of Gribeauval's changes to the old Valliere system included a uniform change. From then on the French artillery would wear dark blue-breeches, coat, and vest.

Gaiters would be white in summer and black in winter and usually so in the field.
