|"This way, lads!" Austrian Grenzers for the Seven Years War - 28mm figures from Front Rank.|
|Lovely reds and greens...the Christmas skirmishers!|
|Love the animation of that officer...he looks ready to jump right into action...|
|Ah, the lovely long hair, tied with a black ribbon...|
|Another view showing the kit, canteen, blanket roll and sword.|
These poor figures have been sitting in there, primed, since 2013. That's six years ago! Yikes! I saw them and I thought it would be fun to just knock them off. After all, the Grenzers wore some pretty fun colours in the Seven Years War period. Why not crack open the paints and enjoy! I flipped through some handy Osprey colour references, and came across the Carlstadt Liccaner Grenz. Red! Cool! Off we went!
|Ready for some skirmishing...|
These are based individually so as to represent a skirmishing formation for rules such as "Black Powder". Grenzers always seem to be skirmishing, so I thought this approach most appropriate.
This is now, technically speaking, a second unit for my Austrian Seven Years War collection...hey - progress is progress...right?
