Today's update brings you the latest regiment of Austrian Dragoons I've finished. Most of the Austrian dragoon regiments have red or even blue uniforms and since the British are red-uniformed as well I wanted to avoid these regiments for my Austrian army in order to prevent confusion on the tabletop. Now this leaves me with the choice of the many green-uniformed regiments and the Althann regiment which had white uniforms. Having done a green-coated regiment already I decided to go for the latter and here are the results with which I am very pleased.
New about the painting-approach I took to finish these chaps is that I base-coated them in Army-painter rat-fur (i.e. brown). This then gave me the option of washing much of the horses which is great since I really HATE doing horses! Well then here are the pictures:
As you can see at the Kronoskaf-page linked above not much is known about the banner except that it was red; so I kept the banner included with the figures and painted it red.
