I've not found much uniform information about the 1848-49 Vienna Volunteers. I do have a copy of Massino Zoppi's excellent "La Spada di Radetzky." Zoppi writes that the Volunteers wore a uniform like Austria's jagers, and some very small illustrations depict white belts and what appears to be a darker green for facings (the jagers used a grass green). I can work with that, but I'm curious – does anyone have any information to the contrary?

Teuber-Ottenfeld: like Jäger, but white belts and infantry muskets (no rifles). There are not only fifty shades of grey …

Thanks, GC – that agrees with Zoppi, so that's what I'll paint. Does Teuber-Ottenfeld show a medium or dark green, or can you tell?
