|The first battery complete . In General D'Armee these will all be standard sized batteries|
|Austrian Brown never looked so impressive|
|Another angle on the first battery with a nice view of an old Hinchcliffe wheelbarrow full of round shot|
|Another view from the top giving a nice depiction on what can be achieved on these bases as opposed to the conventional rectangular styles. A chance to show some of the "chaos" of manning a battery in action.|
|Battery number Two|
|Slightly different positioning on this one|
|I managed to find the correct Austrian artillery ammunition chests and then added some scratch-built rammers.|
|Another view from the top...perhaps the same as a dropping howitzer shell!|
|I do think these bases work very well.|
I thought it may be opportune to quickly pull out some of the 1805 style Austrian Jagers resplendent in their older style infantry helmets. You don't see too many of these old the table top these days.
|These are a lovely figure once again from Elite Miniatures|
|The green comb on the helmet is quite a nice contrast with the black and grey.|
|Close up of the lads complete with enthusiastic hornist|
It is now getting to the point of having these lads on the table for a play-through set of scenarios from Dave's original GdB "Glory Years" scenario book and link the three Austerlitz scenarios together. Not long to go now as I sort through some last piece command figures etc.
Next time I'll show how I've progressed with the Austrian Infantry.
