|Austrian Grenadiers Firing|
(these are actually the French Legion d'Hainault figures painted as Austrians)
|Reverse view of the grenadiers.|
I think that the miniatures used in a skirmish game should have action poses rather than formal marching poses. The Minden Croats suit my purpose perfectly, but I don't have any action poses for regular Austrian infantry. Then I took a closer look at the French light infantry figures for the Legion d'Hainault and noticed the resemblance between these figures and Austrian musketeers and grenadiers with nothing more than "conversion by paint". This means that no extra conversion of the figures is necessary other than paintingbthe figures like Austrians. You can see the results in the pictures in this thread..
