Hi chaps.
Just to let you know I have added some new figures for this range. To compliment the Line Infantry, we now have a selection of Jager figures in various poses, and also Uhlans, Hussars and Cuirassiers in 28mm

Nice work!

Great looking figures. They look a lot like the style of Outpost Games' Russo-Turkish War range. Are they sculpted by the same individual?

Thanks for the kind comments Kevin. The sculptor is Martin Baker. To be honest I'm not too sure if he did the Outpost figures. I do have some of their figures and they are similar

Is there a big difference between 1848 and 1859 as far as uniforms go?

@79thPA. there was a huge difference. In 1848 the Austrian fought still with a very Napoleonic unifom, while in 1859 their uniform was much more modern. for that reason I prefer the 1848 uniforms; here an example

Sorry for not replying 79thPA. Been tied up with work. , Thanks Paperbattles for helping out.
The 1859 coat was a white double breasted tunic which seemed to be more loose fitting to the 1848 tunic. The shako was covered with a black cloth and the trousers were blue for line and grey for Jägers.
The style and cut of the uniform was certainly different although colour schemes were fairly similar

Thank you both. Another interesting period in history that I don't have time to do.
