More Austro Hungarians..

The last of the sprues of unfinished Austro Hungarians for the 1914 Eastern Front project (which doesn't mean that's all the project demands, just that this is the last of the figures rediscovered awaiting painting). I've reverted to the 'pike grey' uniform colour for these, and will probably retain that for the remainder of the AH infantry division. I've previously gone for the bluer interpretation of the colour, but am not convinced by those sources. My trusty Almark book is quite definite about the grey colour.

These photos remind me that close up photography is less than forgiving of this painting style which works well on the tabletop but sometimes doesn't stand up to too close a scrutiny.

I am now about to attack the three remaining sprues of 1914 HaT Russian infantry which will complete the Russian Infantry Division.


  1. They look good to me. I think we tend to be our own worst critics.
