More Austrians enter the fray. Austrian Grenzers from Perry Miniatures. These are metal models, which are ok, though still quite a lot of flash compared to some Murawski Miniatures I picked up recently. Of course they are also much cheaper than Murawski so can't complain really!
I'm also not a fan of this Grenz uniform! It has annoying to paint Hungarian trousers with braiding and stripes, and then ugly brown jackets on top of that. Painting and basing is also made awkward because they have their muskets held at all sorts of sloppy angles - which makes sense given they are somewhat irregular troops of course, but it's right near the end of the Challenge and I don't need this sort of bother right now! ;) Grumble etc..
Anyway enough ranting, here they are... I've done one unit with yellow facings and the other with green facings.
A fabulous entry Mark! I've always liked the Hungarian blue trousers, but, like you, I'm no great fan of the brown jacket of the Grenzers. Nonetheless, you've made them look absolutely smashing here. Well done!
