December painting - The Austrian infantry, very nearly finished

I've somehow managed to do another four units of SYW Austrian infantry in the two weeks leading up to Christmas. These are three German Infantry Regiments and a unit of combined German grenadiers.

This batch brings the Austrian infantry up to twenty seven units.

Front to back, IR 10 Jung-Wolfenbuttel (as a name, you couldn't make a better one up), a unit of grenadiers, and IR 36 Kinsky.
The same units, still needing their flags and basing. 

I painted these three units in two batches so that the grenadier unit can be split up to make the other units into six stand large units when required.
IR 55 D'Arberg. This is a regiment from the Netherlands that fought at Prague, Kolin, Breslau, Leuthen, Hochkirch and Liegnitz. 
IR 55 from the rear. 

I've just got 40 more Austrian infantry to paint now: A unit of 24 Hungarian infantry and two units each of 8 Grenzers. 

Tomorrow, I have my brother in law plus family coming to visit for a week - so I'll have plenty of time to do these this week [Grin].

I just need the rain to stop so that I can undercoat the last of the cavalry. Ilkley is, pretty much, cut off from the rest of the world by flooding today.
