Nice figures, although the bases seem to be very thick. Also, and not to create more work, but the flags for the Austrians were positioned on the front right rank of each battalion so that the unit could guide off the colors accordingly. The photo shown here seems to show the flags in the center of the battalions. Keep up the great work!

The matter of basic thickness seems to be a personal matter. While I personally prefer very thin basis I have friends who like the thicker bases for easy of handling the figures.

but the flags for the Austrians were positioned on the front right rank of each battalion so that the unit could guide off the colors accordingly.

The figures are based for ERS (the rules produced by The Wargaming Company). This is a higher lever set of rules that has 1 Stand = 1 Battalion, so the three field battalions of the Regiment are correctly represented for that rule set.

The degree to which German Regiments adopted the shako in a slightly different matter. I would use them for 1809 (or in helmets for 1813) because I too game in 10mm (but not with ESR as my main rules) and on the table I could look at the unit and say "It's Austrian and a 'German' regiment."

Nice but more pictures of the range would be nice as many manufacturers figures vary in quality of sculpt.

Well, I get that one stand is one battalion. I was talking about the positioning of the flag on the stand, which would be in this case positioning the flag in relation to the rest of the battalion. So if one is to do it "correctly" it would seem that position the flag bearer would be the right front-most figure of the stand.

A pity that The Wargaming Company will not be at Nashcon this year.

Only in square was the battalion flag other than on the front right. Illustrations are available in the Exercier-Reglement of 1808 (my copy has 31 pull out plates), as well as in a few English-language works. Keep up the great work, guys!!!!
