While the helmet is a cool headgear, I find the casquet an equally nifty form of head wear. As before, these 26 figures are AB Miniatures. Excellent sculpting!Next up for the 1799 project will be a selection of artillery for the Austrians and Russians. Until then, painting switches to a couple of small 28mm units.

Austrian IR#18 in 18mm AB
The 1799 project continues to see action at the painting desk. Following close on the heels of IR#43, a second Austrian infantry regiment departs the painting desk. Off the desk today are two battalions of IR#18. While the earlier IR#43 was kitted out in the new 1798 pattern helmet, IR#18 marches off wearing the casquet.
