15mm Austrians   Leave a comment

15mm Austrians finally painted to add to my Napoleonic Austrian Army.

8 bases of German Fusiliers. White uniforms, Shakos. Yellow and Dark blue facings. The Shako being introduced after 1808 and there being a mix of Shako and Helmet wearing regiments in 1809. My force is created for 1809 and the invasion of Bavaria. These Regiments have been issued with brand new Shakos from the supply depots.

Austrian Jaegers. Pike Grey, Corsican hats and Dark Green facings. The Jagers had a good reputation and were considered to be marksmen.

I also re-based 3 officer bases for my Austrians.

I have some cavalry and Grenadiers on order from old glory too, to add to the lead pile. If I get these done I will have a fairly large force to oppose my Bavarians.
