Hello all,

I have a 15mm Baden army set for 1:60 scale for Empire.

Each of the 8x line battalions (4x Regiments by 2) has a light company of two figures each. All of the source info that I own (Otto, Funcken, Johnson, and others) state that the plumes were either green or yellow for the light companies.


So this is what I did:
1st: Yellow
2nd: Yellow over Green
3rd: Green over Yellow
4th: Green

Did I guess correctly? Am I totally off the mark? Does it really matter (as I would ban any complainers and whiners from my gaming room anyway)?

Let the experts educate me….!!!!

Green plume on green rumplehelm crest for chasseurs…or so I have heard for 1808-1812. French shako 1812 onward with requisite ball.

Is there some source that will break down the colors of the various regiments habit veste?
I can see that turnbacks were all red, but were colors, cuffs etc?
Appears not but have not been able to find source that shows or describes each regiment.
Help anyone?

Some nice gouaches of Baden troops by Boisselier from Alfons Canovas website:
Generals link
Artillery, Militia, Hussars, garde du corps & Light Dragoons link
Jagers, Garde du Corps, Line Infantry link
On that page are colour charts for the line infantry:

Try the uniform cds or pdfs from the History Book Man.I have some for the Rhienbund and Italy and found them very useful. He does one for Baden.
