My austrians have been waiting quite some time for reinforcements, I have negleted them entirely this year, being focused on getting the russians in shape, so I figured I needed to give them some love, and added a couple more units of Grenz to the army.
First off, a unit of orange facings, the Szluin regiment. These are Hat Industries models, they don't come with a standard bearer, but having developed a taste for adding flags to my units, I decided to go ahead and spread colors throughout my armies, so I converted a soldier loading his musket into a standard bearer. I'm pretty happy with the result.
What I did was to cut some elements of his musket to smooth up the surface into a pole, and extended it by gluing a lance (from my celts) to the top. The pole didn't turn up very smooth, but the tricolor scheme of the austrian flag poles help hide the irregular surface pretty effetively.
I have done the same conversion with my previous regiment of grenz, as well as the 2 regiments of Hngarians I have, so now I have 5 more units with flags on the austrian army. In time, I'll add colors to them all!
The unit in attack column:
I also painted 6 bases of skirmishers for them, which represent a small unit in open order.
