White or blue coats can cover a multitude from the WSS to the end of the H&M period. The problem starts when armies start wearing fancy coloured trousers instead of white 🙂

Red can be British along a similar timeline.

 

Blue: Prussians But since they will often be fighting French, then you may want to use a really dark blue, or even black. Also blue – Portuguese White: Napoleonic Spanish (although you could use brown and/or blue too)

 

Dark Prussian blue is waaaaaaaaay too dark for 2mm. I’d argue that it’s too dark for 6, 10 and very possibly 15mm as well. You can just about get away with it in 28mm with  good highlighting.
