In a seemingly, mighty coincidence, Peter over at Blunders on the Danube posted a summary of Austrian Light Infantry uniforms for the period 1798-1801. This, at the same time as I finished up the first of two such battalions for my 1799 project and the Battle of Montebello. Kismet!
The first of these light infantry battalions musters out as the 4th Bach Light Infantry Battalion. With pike-grey jacket and pants, the gaiters identify the 4th as a "German" battalion. During my uniformology search on the early light infantry, several paintings and illustrations showed the soldiers in white pants but most showed pike-grey. I opted for the pike-grey in this case. Some sources also showed black webbing. Again, I chose white. Austrian for Figures are sourced from the always excellent AB Miniatures.Next off the painting desk with be a sister light infantry battalion, designated as the 3rd Am Ende. Again, the 3rd is a "German" light infantry battalion.
