Whilst all this O.S. Franco-Prussian War Campaigning has been going on I've been busy painting up some more Austrians for my Italian Wars Of Unification aided by the rather damp Summer weather we have been having which (luckily) has prevented any major or prolonged gardening tasks .
This is the first of my Grenz the rather hard to pronounce 4th Szluiner Regt. with nice orange facings . The figures are of course Irregular 28mm , I rang them up about eleven o'clock in the morning with the order and Peter said "we'll try and get them out today" - I thought "great ! be a couple of days" - they arrived the following morning ! - now that is a great mail order service !
