Hi archiduque,

Excellent! I really enjoy your figures of the French Revolutionary Wars.

I have a question for you: can you recommend some good books or reference material concerning the Austrian Army of 1792 to 1798? I own some 18mm AB figures of this period, which I haven't started painting yet.

I already have a few books, such as the Austrian Osprey books, "The Lace Wars" by the Funckens, Haythorntwhaite's "Uniforms of the French Revolutionary Wars", and "Suvorov's Italian and Swiss Campaigns 1799." (There are also a couple other books which I can't remember at the moment.) There is a lot of material in these books about the Austrians, maybe even most of what I need. But they don't answer all the questions that one has.

Archiduque, I would greatly appreciate any recommendations you might have about researching the Austrian army of this time. Thank you!

Many thanks for the comment!
I have this book too:
Uniforms of the French Revolutionary Wars
Philip Haythornthawitte-Christopher Warner
Editorial Arms and Armour

I hope this helps you in something.
Anyway if you need more information send me an email, I will be happy to help.

Very nicely done, Rafa!

This gives me some inspiration for one of my fictional cavalry units!
