Blue Moon French 15mm 18mm Infantry in Greatcoats.

Just finished these. I wanted some 1814 ragged French national guard, but I couldnt find any suitable in 18mm.  Perry makes perfect ones in 28mm that look like they came off the pages of Hourtoulle's 1814 book, but nothing like that in 15mm.... so I painted them up like the pics in Hourtoulle...

And I didnt paint the buttons on purpose. The Coats in Hourtoulle's photos were actually shorter, and had no buttons. So I didnt paint the buttons...
 I hope they look the part.  I realize most units in 1814 would look pretty shabby, greatcoats, etc. But not in my army. Just the national guard are getting this treatment.
Next up are French Hussars...
