This what your looking for...

In March 1813, Marshal Bessieres incorporated the squadron of the
Lithuanian Tartars, now reduced to 50 men and 3 officers, into the debris of
the 3rd Regiment of Lancers of the Guard, itself raised in Lithuania. This
unfortunate regiment, created in July, was totally destroyed on October 19,
1812 at Slonim. The only survivors came from its depot. The strength of the
Tartar squadron was recorded at 24 men on June 22, and at 26 Tartars on
July 11, of which 6 still wore the old uniforms. Shortly thereafter on
December 9, in a desire to strengthen the 1st Regiment of Lancers of the
Guard, which was in fact Polish, Bessieres incorporated the 3rd Lancers,
including the Lithuanian Tartars, into it. As independent formations, the two
Lithuanian units in the Imperial Guard ceased to exist. The Polish and
Lithuanian contingents in the French army seemed destined to merge.

I am planning to start a wargame project with miniatures set from 1813-1815.

As I want to use 28mm, I came upon the French line of Victrix:



However, it is stated that they represent the French line only until 1812.

What is different in 1813 to 1815? I have read somewhere the coat....

You think I can use them?
