Giant Commission -- Grenz Regiments

It took just six days to finish up these 48 figures.  We have six different regiments here.  I opted to paint the Grenz in their classic brown coat and red cloak combination.  Most regiments may have switched over to white coats and grey overcoats by 1809, but these should scream "Grenz" on the tabletop.









Just 18 Jager remain, and then I will be done with the Austrian infantry!

  1. I couldn't agree more! Grenzers should look like grenzers...and these fill that role admirably. Well done, sir!

  2. Grenz look great! My sources list grenz in a mix of brown and white jackets in 1809. Brown jackets will be fine. Besides, the brown jacket with red great coat is de rigueur. Always good history on your side.

    1. I imagine the Grenz were reluctant to give up their old brown jackets. Plus they look sharp.
