Work continues on the 1799 project with the mustering of one battalion of the 2nd Carl Rohan Light Infantry Battalion. The light pike grey uniform with white webbing is a welcome change from fielding battalion after battalion of the White Menace. The white over grey provides a good contrast too. Three battalions of the white-coated, Austrian line infantry are working their way across the painting desk. So, the 2nd Carl Rohan offers but a small respite.
For a change of pace, the 15mm foot figures are from Battle Honors rather than the more usually seen AB Miniatures' figures. While the Battle Honors figures were sculpted by Tony Barton, they are somewhat slighter in stature than his later AB Austrians. Very fine figures nonetheless. As always, the mounted colonel is an AB. The Austrian line infantry, mentioned as in work, are Battle Honors figures as well. Purchased from 19th Century Miniatures at a hefty discount, I doubled down and ordered two more bags of these figures at 30% discount. I real bargain!
Also working across the painting desk are more 18mm SYW Prussian heavy cavalry and 18mm SYW Prussian fusiliers.
