Off the painting desk is Austrian IR#47. All four battalions present and accounted for. For IR47 is 72 figures strong. For me, that is a lot of figures to tackle at one bound. Drudgery during but joy afterward.
More fine infantry for the 1859 project. These Austrian infantry are from Lancashire Games are are probably my favorite 15mm figures for this project. I love 'em! The figures paint easily and the metal is a softer alloy so the figures can be bent into shape. I put this regiment in a mix of kittel and greatcoat. I like the contrast and adds some interest, I think.
I almost want to shove another 72 Austrians into the painting queue!
