More Austrian Infantry: IR.10

Were getting close to reports of actual games again folks, but in the mean time I've been able to make good progress on my Austrians.  Here's the start of a second brigade for the 1st Corps; IR.10 - the Anton Mittrowsky Regiment:

 
These are the Warrior Miniatures march attack poses and very pretty castings they are too.  Not world class, sure, but exactly what you want from a 15mm rank and file figure; neat castings of a good quality.

 
For these chaps a shot from the rear is justified.  On the first two regiments I skimped on painting the leather kit on the blanket rolls, but by this unit I felt that was just lazy and so... more detail than a model a centimetre and a half tall really ever requires.

One more infantry unit, some cavalry and some artillery and the core of the army - enough figures for a game anyway - will be done.

Progress.

  1. They look great; I agree, marching rank and file looks the best with Napoleonics.

  2. Very smart - the uniforms look great especially the white. I'm doing French 15mm AWI at the moment and the white can be a pain.

  3. Dannoc: The white is a very simple scheme here; simply two or three over brushes of any pure white over a light grey under coat. Naturally this is the first 'colour' applied to the prepared models. A two part Vallejo matt varnish, one part Army Painter Strong Tone mix is applied to the final model for added definition.
