Uniform shortages and scratch raised troops! I hear tell one Guard unit had only a metre of gold braid on their hats! The shame!

Are you quite sure it's not too late for that? Wink

Anyway, back on topic...

1 regiment of hussars and 5 of German line now based.

Waiting on the bases from Leon. (Who am I kidding - I only have one unbased unit, the order will arrive before any more units get done... )

Yes, I know Austrian units only carried 1 Standard per battalion in 1809, but there are a number of important caveats that allow me to put 2 per unit.

1) I like flags
2) These are primarily for Field of Glory, so the unit represents a Regiment or Brigade, thus multiple battalions. (I suppose given this I could add a 2nd Ordinarfahne)
3) Austrian-German units are White with white, white and white. Flags give some colour.
4) Flags are likable.
5) 96 man units in 1:200 - I'm not doing some 12 man 'so called battalion' - see #3
6) These can/will also be used for Black Powder. If we do the cm scale, then the units will be just 3 stands, this way I get a 1st (with Liebfahne) and 2nd (with Ordinarfahne) battalion
7) Did I mention I like a unit with a flag?

Tomorrow/shortly I will undercoat some Hungarians.

Post Script.
Technically the Leibfahne are the 1804 pattern, not the 1806. But the back is prettier - see the flags at the bottom of this:
