In the Shandean Garden Wargame the English regiments of Foot (with one exception) wear the Mitre Cap*.
This gives them a truly 'British' feel, and here are some of the varieties of figures that make up the two Brigades of Infantry.
The one regimental exception is the Huguenot volunteer regiment of Foot - those stalwarts of Francois du Cambon - who would be killed at Landen.

WAS it Makay's regiment, quoth
my uncle Toby, where the poor
grenadier was so unmercifully whipp'd at
Bruges about the ducats. -- O Christ ! he
was innocent ! cried Trim with a deep
sigh. ---- And he was whipp'd, may it
please your honour, almost to death's
| -- They had better have shot him|
outright, as he begg'd, and he had gone
directly to heaven, for he was as innocent
as your honour.
