Next Up

Following my painting pecking list of a few days ago I am now ready to prep Austrian regiment Harrach. The regiment have retained their circa 1704 version flags. As I have mentioned many times with the facing colours of the German infantry very much two colours, 24 red, 16 blue, 2 green, 1pink, and 1 black, something has to differentiate them other than with or without pom poms. So for me it is the flags. A mixture of early and MT flags gives the Austrians more visual appeal.
Readers might wonder why the officers heads are separate. Well at one time the officers did have heads but I was short of the officer head/tricorne for the mounted officers so I removed them. In the last mould I had the head recast.
