Work returns to the 1799 project. This update sees four Austrian guns and crew rolling off the painting desk. The guns and crew are from AB Miniatures with the artillerymen hailing from the FRW range. Excellent figures and just the ticket for a growing FRW Austrian army. Four more Austrian guns and crew await in the painting queue.
Now, I have a bunch of Austrian batteries for the 1809 project that could be pressed into service for the 1799 campaign. 1809 uniforms show not much difference to this earlier dress. Even so, I wanted to field AB figures and guns for the 1799 project. Most of the guns and crew for the 1809 project are Old Glory painted many, many years ago. Some of these Old Glory guns may still need to be pressed into service. We shall see.
