While preparing the OOB's for the Scenario, I found that the Brandenburg Uhlans took part in the pursuit, but also that there are not Prussian Uhlans amongst my lead/plastics recruits. Therefore, this will be the next painting project, really a very reduced one, because I only need 8 figures to build a four-bases 'normal' Lasalle unit.
A quick review of the literature, led to the classic Osprey Men-at-Arms 172 book Prussian Cavalry of the Napoleonic Wars (2).1807–15, from Peter Hofschröer and illustrated by Bryan Fosten, where the uniforms are described.

The armament consisted in a curved sabre with a steel scabbard. The troopers carried a lance with a brown shaft and iron point. In 1813 the pennants were dark blue on the lower halves and yellow (Brandenburg Uhlans) on the upper half. The rankers wore also a pistol and a black leather cartridge-box with white (shown black in all the sources) belt.
The horse furniture was a black sheepskin saddle cloth with a red 'wolf's teeth' (triangular) trim.
