Painting update Austrians   Leave a comment

Austrian Hussars . A colourful unit from Hesse Homburg. Chosen because they make a contrast to the other units and this regiment famously hated the Bavarians. Plus two officer bases such as brigadiers and an aide de camp or officer depending on which rules. The grenadier officer base is based on an actual drawing found in my source book from osprey . Essex must have seen it as of course it is from an original when they made the officer figure . In the picture he is next to a grenadier officer in front of the unit of grenadiers .

Contrast paints as usual and the simple basing style to match the other units .
