The Generisch Grenadier Battalion

Along with Stan's Austrians, which I have now re-based, there were 14 unpainted Austrian Grenadiers.  I am building an army for Marengo using Napoleon's battles and need a unit of 16 and 24.  In a stroke of good luck, the recent purchase of a pack of Old Glory Austrian German Grenadiers provided 26 figures.  Better still that were the same castings.  Phew!

Only thing is I found they are in the early war uniform, but wait on, I am doing them for Marengo.

The second unit I will be doing will be the Typisch Grenadier Battalion.  I will probably go for yellow or maybe some shade of blue facings.


  1. Beautifully done Mark. The red facings look particularly good against the white uniform, don't they?

    1. Thanks. There are plenty of facing colours to choose from with the Austrians. I went for red for the contrast as you've noted - eye popping :-)
