Well I've started painting my remaining Austrian Napoleonic figures , I must have had these at least 10 years - so it is about time they got paint on them !. The first unit I've got done is a Styrian Landwehr battalion - one of the problems of photographing such a large unit is getting them all in the photo .
A close up of the commander - (Hmm ? a similar build to my good self !) .
Another command group - this chap looks a bit grumpy - probably thinks he should be in charge . I had to draft in several officer figures to get this unit up to the full strength of 36.
I then started on the mammoth task of the three battalions of Grenadiers - each of 24 figures .
A Grenadier battalion was made up of three companies each from a different regiment , so there will be three different facing colours to break up the monotony .
Having got several figures left I decided to do a head swap to give them their own special Brigadier . Well that's 24 done only another 48 to go !. (click on photos to enlarge)
