Progress on the 1859 project continues with work on a battalion of Austrian infantry. While difficult to identify the battalion by their regimental collar tabs in 15mm, this group of 18 figures musters out as IR 2/37. Figures are Old Glory.
Following closely on the footsteps of IR 2/37 will be the IR 3/37.
A number of other units destined for the 1859 project are also in the painting pipeline. These 1859 units include, one, three battalion regiment of French line infantry; 12 figure regiment of Austrian Uhlans; and one 12-figure battalion of Sardinian Bersaglieri. All three units are Lancashire Games' figures.
Departing momentarily from the 1859 project after the French infantry, however, will likely be 12 French heavy cavalry for the 1799 project. The French cavalry are part of the recent influx of 1859 Lancashire lead. Very crisp detailing on these early French cavalry and I am anxious to see how they look once fitted out with a coat of paint.
