Need help with proxies for Line Grenadiers, Guards, and Jaegers.

Was thinking Russian Grenadiers with shakos for Prussain Grenadiers, and Russian Grenadiers with Kiwer for the Prussain Guards.

Not sure for the Jaegers.

I would go for Russian Grenadiers (probably in greatcoats).

I could use Prussain line for my guard and grenadiers and just add plumes.

Has anyone done this ?

Just remember that plumes were not worn on campaign.   The Prussian Guards etc. can be quite easily portrayed using NPR1 and the correct paint scheme.
