I have finished off first set of bulk infantry for Austrians in shakos. Since this was the first patch of the men in white I painted, I made mistake with the uniforms (curiously, how can that happen with all white uniforms?). Should use the white sparingly – and certainly be more careful with the paintbrush.
Perhaps it is a mistake, but I choose to use Hungarians for skirmish duty in the front of the rank and file. In any case Hungarians were abundant cannon fodder and renown of their braveness – besides, they bring some color to the troopers. So far these amount some one and a half brigades worth.
More Austrians is to follow. There is one Hungarian brigade waiting in the desk to have skirmishers painted and everything based.
