Austrian Line Infantry - 28mm Victrix

More Austrian Line Infantry completed.  I chose Victrix for this next lot because I wanted a few more pose options for commanders, and also ability to make some skirmishing figures for General d'Armee. Bought in bulk to get the discounted rate.

Light blue and deep green facings for these regiments. So Regt #3 Erzherzog Carl and Regt #8 Erzherzog Ludwig perhaps, with two battalions from each. 

Quite happy with them, and exactly this amount again is already being assembled. 

Regt No. 3.





Regt. No. 8.

  1. You are a machine! Your Austrians look brilliant. How is the assembly of the figures? Fiddly or not so bad?

    1. Cheers Jonathan! Assembly is pretty good, 1/3 figures backpack and head. 1/3 figures backpack head and one arm. 1/3 of figures backpack, head and two arms. The last 3rd mean you can make them up as skirmishers firing loading etc if you want, so actually quite useful.

    2. I understand they listened to customers desires for less assembly with these compared to the early Brit and French kits, hence wargamer friendly and assembly kept to minimum, while still giving some amount of option. I think it is a nice compromise.

  7. Great looking Austrians, lovely painting. I was relieved when I looked inside the Austrian boxes and saw they were less complicated than the victrix french making just 3 boxes of them seemed to take forever!
    Best Iain
