AB Napoleonics - Another Basing Spree

Mostly Austrians, but a few other odds and ends as well.  I noticed that none of the Austrian cavalry had had their horses painted, which was fairly demoralising.  For the purposes of basing them up I have at least put their base colours on. 

Rear L - R: 6pdr Position, 12pdr Position, Front L - R: 3pdr Brigade, 6pdr Brigade

Saxon Foot Artillery 

 One of the two supporting vignettes to the main Napoleon & Staff command base that is in the pipeline.  The only thing not completed here is the officer's mount. 

Various Austrian mounted officers and casualties.  

More Austrian casualties.  Alongside some French Chasseurs and Cuirassiers these are some of the first ABs I painted, for some reason they have ended up based on pennies.  

 Some Austrian commanders.  The horses in the middle have at least been started, the outer one haven't even got their base colours on.

Another Austrian commander.  Nothing doing on the horses!  Also photographed in such a way as to obscure much of the other base details. 

Austrian Chevaulegers finally get lifted out of their dull black bases after years of waiting.  The horses have also had a begrudging start made on them.

Another unit that has waited years to get based, this time the Erzherzog Ferdinand Hussars.

Finally a couple of units of Austrian Kurassiers.  Again, horses to be finished at some unknown future date.  Like most of the Austrians painted before this year they have been painted with proper shades of white as opposed to the current generation with their adjusted uniform shade. 


  1. Your putting together a lovely collection!!!

  2. This is a really nice collection. Very well done 👍

  3. Many thanks for all the kind comments : ) At some point later in the year I hope to do a review of everything so far, much as I did a couple of years ago just to see everything as it stands.

  4. If you are on Facebook there is a group called 'the napoleonic wargamer' it's a closed group and there is a lot of great painted figures posted up as well as loads of useful info. Well worth joining, I think you would enjoy it.
