Yesterday, I painted the last unit of line infantry for my SYW Austrian army. It's IR 31 Haller. I nearly didn't paint this unit up because, there is something rather odd about it.
This unit consists of a batch of twelve figures I purchased from ebay made up to strength with a direct purchase from Front Rank.
I didn't immediately notice that, although both lots of figures are by Front Rank, and although the shooting figures all have the same catalogue code, they are different sculpts.
I seem to remember someone telling me that Alec had, at some point, redesigned some of his Seven Years War range. It looks like I have a unit that comprises both the new and the old.
Although the difference is very apparent close up, the older sculpts being much bulkier figures, I doubt anyone will notice during game play.
Just 16 Grenzers to pant and the Austrian infantry are finished.
