As always, the Black Tree figures painted up very easily. A brush application of Minwax Polyshades created some instant shading. This was a fun little side project.

The Austrian army gets two irregular infantry units. These are from HaT's SYW Austrian infantry in action. I just cut down the tricorne hats to look like Grenzer shakos. These are the Warasdiner-Creutzer Grenzer in white and the Slavonisch-Brooder Grenzer in brown.
Finally, what's an Austrian army without hussars? These are HaT's Napoleonic Prussian hussars, unconverted. The regiments are the Dessewffy and Kaiser Franz I Hussars.
With these figures done, I have the complete Austrian force for Kolin. This army contains 254 foot, 57 horse, and five guns.
This was another very inexpensive army, running me under $120. It was actually fun to just slap some paint on cheap figures and not worry about getting every detail just right. I plan on playing Maurice games with my children, and I won't feel bad if the paint gets chipped or figures get broken.
