I used the FPW Saxon Infantry figure and made an infantryman using the Prussian Dragoon head which I had left over.
However, I thought the helmet wasn't tall enough, so fell back on the CW Russian Guard 'helmet'. This looks much 'grander'. Again the Saxon officer provided the body. Just for the fun of it I also converted the Caucausian bugler as an alternative to a drummer.
I then found the picture for the 1866 uniform and realised that I had been working on the 1862 uniform!!!!! The 'Jacklex backpack' would probably be a better fit than the Saxon one..
I also made this trial figure based on a picture of the Hesse Damstadt Infantry. Again didn't look at the date so he will remain a one-off although I do like the figure a lot. Need to look at dates not pretty pictures!!!!
