These first rate figures are from Mirliton's excellent Italian War of Independence range. While I do not field too many of Mirliton's infantry, their cavalry are probably my favorites from all manufacturers. Excellent sculpts with figures offered in either walking or charging poses. Many more bags of Mirliton cavalry await in The Lead Pile. Enough bags I suspect to field all of the Sardinian and Austrian cavalry seeing service during the war. It really is a shame that Mirliton make no French cavalry (or infantry) in 15mm. Mirliton French cavalry would be well received, I bet.
Coming off the painting desk soon are three more reinforcements for the 1799 project. These new recruits include three battalions comprising two battalions of French light infantry and one battalion of Austrian jaegers.
