Showcase: Austrian Grenzers

 



Heyhey, here's some men of Militärgrenzregiment Nr.14, Szekler Nr.1. It's Grenzers! Other than most other Grenzer regiments, who wore tobacco brown coats by 1809, the guys of Szekler Nr.1 kept their white coats up until 1815. So that's how I painted them. Now everybody's confused when they see them, asks why those Hungarians (because that's what they look like in their white coats) wear these Grenzer shakos, etc. 

Big confusion! And that's how we like it. Hope you like confusion too! I mean, I hope that you like those figures too!

Showcase: Austrian Artillery

 


Heyhey, just a quick one today. It's an Austrian 3-pdr gun with some very neat looking artillerymen to work this magnificent piece of equipment. All Front Rank figures, so painting them neatly makes it worth the effort. Hope you like them!

Showcase: Crimean War Highlanders.

 


Heyhey, look, it's even more Highlanders! Again, without bases. Some of the people I paint figures for prefer to do the basing themselves. Either way, painting these here I learned something about 19th century Highlanders: People seem to be overly concerned with painting kilts for some reason. Those are pretty easy actually. It's those bloody socks and the things at the front of the bearskins you should be afraid of! 


But anyway, once all that's done, they make for a magnificent view, don't they. 

Hope you like them! Next figures I post will come with bases again, I promise. ;-)
