Seven Years War Hungarian Fusiliers.

Finally made a start on the two planned Hungarian infantry regiments for my Austrian Army.

I have decided to depict IR 37 Josef Esterhazy purely because the surname reminds me of one of the main protagonists in John Le Carre's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Its not a bad looking uniform either come to that, though the blue braid on the original was likely darker.

The red has come out a little shiny , but once a coat of matt varnish has been applied this problem will be cured.


  1. Great paintjob, lovely colors!

  2. Thanks Phil, those Austrians had a good eye for colour.

    Regards HGA.
