White Spirit…

Here are the Austrian infantry for my Imperial Army of the Seven Years war. I am not sure what needs to be said that I haven’t said before.

The Flag of I.R. Platz is correct. Why it was quite different I do not know.

The regiments were selected on a whim apart from I.R. Toscana where I just liked the idea of buff belting contrasting with the uniforms..

Some units have a regimental artillery model which I neglected to photograph. I will catch up with this when I do the cavalry.

I have also photographed the grenadiers of the army. They turn out to quite a sizeable force in their own right. There are probably too many of them really in scale comparison with the infantry regiments and for some reason that escapes me at the moment I didn’t give every regiment a grenadier co – or it could be that I simply cannot find them.

The grenadiers of the Reichsarmee are particularly nice. I had to do quite a bit of alteration here and there because many of them had subtle differences from the straight Prussian or Austrian uniform.

Please feel free to comment.
