|A regiment of Austrian Cuirassiers parades past the camera. These are super neat & detailed, note the lining on the saddle cloths. These and all following pics depict Barry Hill's studio - Hi Barry!|
|These Austrian Grenadiers always catch my eye, those decorative bags on the bearskins are almost hypnotic!|
Note the high lighting on the blanket rolls too - insanely fiddly to paint!
|Fuzzy shot of an Austrian foot battery. These are 12lb guns attached to the Grenadier reserves. |
I love the stoic expression on the bucket holders faces...
"Join the army they said. Travel the world the world they said. Hold a bucket... "
|Chasseurs a Pied move up to save the centre!|
These are Old Glory toys and they arrive cast in strips of five models although you wouldn't know it from this shot.
|Austrian line in helmets. These 48 strong battalions are the mainstay of the Austrian infantry strength.|
These really need me to sort the flags out to avoid the "pike block" look!
|24 strong Austrian Chevau Leger Regiment by Old Glory deployed in line.|
We have four of these to run around with.
|Austrian Landwehr with outrageous stripey poles. We field these 32 strong, nice details again, check out the buttons.|
|French heavies in line, these are 32 strong large regiments in GdA. Old Glory models again.|
I might add the two famous Saxon regiments to the French heavy cavalry reserve next year.
|Eagle eyed Chris watches my every move for signs of absent minded play (cheating).|
This is a rare shot of me at the table, thanks to Tony for the snapshot - you're a Star mate!
There you go, hope you enjoy these, I'll try to repeat the exercise again if you approve, let me know.
