            Could someone identify the Hussar regiment portrayed in the first picture? I can not seem to figure this one out.

            • Okay - I did some more digging and came up with the 'Elisavetgrad' for the Hussar officer in the 1st pic.

              Now, to me the dolman and pelisse look blueish, but I've read that the Elisavetgrad had gray dolman and pelisse. When I looked up pictures of this unit I keep finding blue.

              Anyone know which color it should be?
              Cheers!

                    Excuse, I thought an inscription will be visible.

                      You are right, Elisavetgrad regiment had gray dolman and pelisse.

                          The Field-Officer Elisavetgrad Regiment;


                          Yup...they were all visible, but for some reason the word 'Elisavetgrad' was really, really fuzzy on my end. When I tried to enhance the word it just got worse. So, I started going down the list of regiments till I found one that seem to fit and it turned out to be the right one.

                          BTW - still looks blueish to me!!

                          I'm trying to find an on-line picture of one of the uniforms taken at a museum or such, but no luck so far.
                          Cheers!

                            • I'm a fan of the British 95th rifles battalion, the green jackets.

                              • The 95th rifles notice that all the uniform is green including the Pantaloon's.



                                In this picture they are gray which is incorrect and the artist might have
                                made a mistake. This more closely reflects the 60th Royal Americans rifle
                                regiment only difference is the facings should all be red. The 60th was even
                                known to wear green pantaloons like the 95th. If the 95th wore gray I am
                                unaware of it and may stand corrected, but to the miniature painter this
                                would be a mistake as I made it in the past, 95th are all green to my
                                knowledge.



                                Another unit is the K.G.L Rifles not to get confused, they wore gray
                                pantaloons and the shoulder straps with the bun? are the definite
                                distinctions of this regiment.

                                Again if you are painting miniatures you don't want to get this confused.
                                The pictures above show the clear distinction between the rifle regiments.



                                Officer of the 60th with the red facings.

                                If there is additional info I am interested in hearing about it or if I made a
                                mistake.
