Only after having planned the Montebello OB and pulled figures from their storage boxes, did I discover that the collection was light on Austrian grenz infantry. Before looking through the boxes, having only one battalion of grenz seemed impossible. The painting log should have been consulted.Given that shortfall and oversight, fielding an additional battalion seemed prudent. With that inspiration, an 18 figure battalion of the Liccaner Grenz Regiment #1 rolls off the painting desk. Figures are 15mm Old Glory from the infantry pack. Good, solid figures even though a few of the command figures tend towards arriving sans heads.
By my count, fourteen battalions of grenz were present in June at Solferino/San Martino so I have some serious work to accomplish to bring these light troop contingents up to muster. Luckily, only three battalions were present at Montebello and jaegers were put in place as reasonable substitutes. Another battalion awaits in the painting queue.
