French Carabinier (as grenadiers in light infantry regiments were known). Those banded shakos are buggers to paint (lots to be said for campaign shako covers...) but do look good when done carefully.

The hardest things to do are the straps around the backpack- these caused considerable grief, but I think I have the hang of them now- paint the straps first, and then the rest of the backpack around them!
