Not sure whether this will be my entry or not, but I suspect I may get sidetracked between now and the deadline.

So here are three cuirassier units for my War of Spanish Succession Austrian/Imperial army. They are all made using the Strelets GNW Swedish Reiters.




For the sharp eyed observer the coats have turnbacks when there should be none



Included is a unit from my imaginary country the Frundsberg Frei Stadt acting on imperial service, their yellow coats are not that dissimilar from the buff coats worn my the Austrians

Puts my modest unit to shame Will, well done, nice colours too.

You`ve really managed to get these plastics to come up well.

They're based for my own, still under development for this period, based on my existing SYW/AWI sets. See

Very nice! Non-group-build-related question: do you plan some dismounted bases for them? WSS still saw dismounted dragoons in action fairly often- the Austrians under Eugene even used dismounted cuirassiers against turkish strongholds.
