From their announcement:
Whilst we are awaiting test shots of the rest of the plastic Austrian boxed sets we thought we would show you some of the beautifully painted Austrians we have just recieved from Darren at Gripping Beast and Andrew Taylor.
We are sure you will agree both have done a really fantastic job on these figures.
It is intersting to note the way both have handled the difference between the white uniform and the white crossbelts. Painting all of them the same would look dull, however by doing what Darren and Andrew have done here by painting the uniform an off white with creams, and then painting the straps brighter and shaded with greys really lifts the strapwork away from the body.
The Austrians used many and varied colours for their regimental facing colours, making for a very striking looking army. We asked Darren and Andrew to show a good mix of facing colours on these painted samples.
We should have more figures to show you soon.
