From GregB: 28mm Napoleonic Austrian Infantry IR#4 and Aide de Camp (210 points)


Greg sends in this excellent battalion of Austrian infantry depicting IR#4 along with a mounted ADC.

I really like this officer hollering his head off, exhorting his men.


The infantry battalion is composed of 28mm Victrix plastic models while the ADC is a Foundry casting.


Greg tells me he really likes the variation of poses available from this box. I agree as I did up an 1804-1807 Victrix French battalion last year and found they were great models if a bit time-intensive to assemble. From what I understand the more recent releases are less fiddly to put together which is an excellent improvement. 




In the shot above the footslogger on the right looks like he's saying, 'Look over there, Heinz, a horse that has two asses...'


These 38 infantry and 2 mounted figures will give Greg 210 points. Great job and a lovely unit!

    @Juan - those sci-fi models in the back are from Pig Iron Productions; I've been adding some sci-fi models in between bouts of historical painting. You can see what they look like finished over on our blog.

  12. Very nice, funny how the faces sort are reminiscent here of Elite figures, but much more varied, very nice unit

  13. @John - the faces were one area where I had a challenge with these guys, not because the sculpts were bad, but because I had some big challenges with bad primer.

    Thankfully the lads are kind of looking down, just kind of grimly awaiting the French attack...
