Russian hussars Crimean WAR

Trying to look for some more info anything online/ to paint these. The Strelets box art is ok but I'm thinking not all hussars wore a blue uniform underneath the greatcoat.
The famous picture of them charging the Thin Red LIne shows afalling officer in a greenish/grey uniform as I recall.
