Cuirassier Regiment No. 6 and Infantry Regiment No. 27

I just finished two Austrian regiments, the Cuirassier Regiment “Melas” No. 6 and Infantry Regiment “Graf. Strassoldo” No. 27, the Infantry Regiment changed inhaber to Marquis Chasteler in 1809 and became the Infantry Regiment “Chasteler” No. 27.

The first Cuirassiers are a repaint and suffers a bit from “thick paint syndrome”, while the infantry are new.

The infantry have been languishing, unpainted, in a drawer for almost 20 years. For some reason the infantry has Shakos, which is a bit odd since I am collecting a 1798 – 1809 Austrian army. I probably had a good idea 20 years ago that I don’t remember anymore :D.

I am not 100% sold on the technique I have used on these, basically airbrush white primer, airbrush white, thin white wash, block in details, a thinned oil lacquer wash, airbrush matte varnish and then a couple of layers of highlights as needed.

The bases are not finished, I am a bit undecided on what I want to do with them.

Infantry Regiment No. 29 and Uhlan Regiment No. 1

I painted the Infantry Regiment “Graf Wallis” No. 29.  almost 20 years ago, in an age where I used a lot more paint then I do now :).

The regiment changed inhaber and became the Infantry Regiment “Freiherr von Lindenau” No. 29 in 1803.

The Uhlans are the Uhlan Regiment “Merveldt” No. 1, they were painted up by a friend of mine around the same time as I painted the Infantry Regiment ‘Graf Wallis’ Nr. 29. I painted up a unit of British Line Infantry for him in return. I remember thinking that the unit I painted for him was rather well done, sadly I don’t have any pictures of it since it would be interesting to see how well I actually painted it.

Hungarian Hussar Regiments

Five Hungarian Hussar regiments, these are painted by Reinforcements by Post. I have two “in progress” that’s being painted by me, it takes a while due to all the details and I feel that I need to match or surpass the Hussars painted by RbP .

Hungarian Line Infantry Regiments

I am hoping for a Black Powder gaming night, so I am in the middle of taking inventory of my 15mm Napoleonics. I am using the opportunity to take pictures of what I have, so expect irregular updates with new pictures as I work through the various units.

First up are the Hungarian component of the Kaiserliche-Königliche Heer. They are a mix of what I painted just over 20 years ago, and some I bought from Reinforcements by Post. I think that the miniatures painted by Reinforcements by Post are great value for money, sadly he doesn’t do commissions anymore.

I need to touch up the ones I have painted and change their facing colors since I have duplicates, they could also do with two additional bases per unit bringing them up to 8 bases per unit as I have standardized on.
