Eureka 28mm Austrian Grenzers

I've just completed 4 of the 8 Austrian Grenz miniatures that I'll need for my 1st Austrian Corp.

These are Eureka's miniatures, which I picked up at last year's Historicon. The figures were a joy to paint, and the cleanup was minimal, with the only assembly being the attachment of the ramrods which hang from a strap on the fronts of the miniatures (I have to admit that I lost a couple of these to the "carpet monster", but I'm hoping that no one will notice once the unit is finished!).

I've lifted the uniform colors completely from Osprey's MAA 299, Austrian Auxiliary Troops 1792-1816. You'll recognize these from figure A1.

In the coming weeks and months, I hope to update the progress I am making with my early Napoleonic collection.

Time permitting, my next post will actually be about the Sudan miniatures I've talked about!
