Some who are into late 18th Century Potemkin Russian forces may have already seen these two guides from Soldiershop. There were two volumes at the game store I visited in Minneapolis – Source Comics and Games. Great store – among the best in the US.
A cursory read/ scan showed me a.ton of detail I was looking for. From Eric’s site it looks like Grenadiers wore a white plume vs the yellow of the line companies. The books also have a tremendous level of detail on ancillary units as well
Some of you may know that I have armies for Russo-ottoman Ears for 1770s as well as 1790s, so these books fit the entirety of those conflicts.
For anyone serious enough about tracking down figures for a Potemkin army, I think these are worth it.
