1799 Suvorov in Italy - The Austrians

The third faction in the 1799 Project is that of Austria.  To date, eight battalions of Austrian infantry have taken the field.  All of these battalions are wearing the early casquet rather than the helmet that was introduced in the 1798 regulations.  My thought is that headgear would not be replaced when the Regulations were enacted but only introduced over time as the casquets wore out. I have a few battalions worth of Austrian AB in helmet that I may add into the project.  

Figures are all AB Miniatures.




Once I add in some artillery and a few cavalry, I should be ready to conduct a small game.

    1. Peter, thanks! I, too, like the casquet, and the helmet, and the shako. A great looking army in multiple periods.

      When WE are in command, the Austrians DO enjoy competent generalship, right?

  5. I do really like this basing Scheme. Eventually all of my French and British will have to succumb as well.

    1. Glad you like it! Since I am frequently in the single-element MU camp, this is a good solution.
