Austrian Line IR#31/Grn BN

With this, the fourth or grenadier battalion of Austrian Infantry Regiment #31 is complete.  As the third battalion completed a few days prior, these figures are from Lancashire Games' 15mm range of figures.  This battalion contains the same mix of poses as the 3rd battalion; all great figures.  
Units for the 1859 project continue to see steady treatment at the painting station.  Two French cavalry regiments are presently getting some attention with the brush.

Below are a couple of group shots of the recently mustered third and fourth battalions of IR#31.

With the 1859 project seeing frequent activity at the painting desk thus far in 2016, when will a game using this collection hit the gaming table?  Good question!  My plan is to offer a game up in late fall once summer activities wind down and schedules return to a more routine nature.

Until that time, work continues at the painting desk.

    1. Thanks, Scott! You mentioned an interest in FPW in 15mm. Lancashire Games' Germans are nice too. I have a 'test' battalion of them nearing the painting queue.

    1. Lancashire is not so well known on this side of the pond. I m trying to give them some exposure. I sure like the 15mm figures!

  5. Nice looking unit, your churning out these 1859 figures at a fair old rate and to a very high standard.

    1. Iain, a fair number of 1859 units have been crossing the painting desk of late. Maybe a few more before I move onto something else.
      Appreciate your comments!

  6. Another great looking Austrian battalion. This era should really look super on the tabletop!

    I have also tried to give the Lancashire Games troops some exposure here in the US, in my case their 28's.

    1. Thank you, Peter! Yeah, we are both doing our part on figure promotion, right?

  7. Truly beautiful figures. Capture the look of the Austrians of that period. Have not heard of Lancaster figures but they are outstanding.

    1. Thanks Mark! Lancashire Games have many excellent ranges in 15mm. Give them consideration on your next 15mm project.
