The inspiration. One day I'll kitbash a windmill. The French officer could be made from the Peninsular War British officer (if I ever obtain another.) Good luck finding figure for Yorck.
French marines are a paint conversion of HäT's Napoleonic Brunswick Lieb infantry. Too many straps, I know. Hussar style coats are a bear to paint! The Prussian Dragoons are, well, HäT's Prussian Dragoons (set #8002). Not the bicornes (set #8196.)
