Austrians at Leipzig, 1813


I have just received a new commission of Austrians from Leuthen Studios. I wanted a sampling of the new Perry Austrians and I am very pleased with the result. They form part of my Leipzig Project. For GrenadierBattalion Call, also part of Graf Weißenwolff's Division, please see this entry from January 2013:

These Hungarian grenadiers are from Grenadierbatallion Habinay with two companies each from IR32 and IR 39. They formed part of Brigade Watzi in FML Nikolaus Graf Weißenwolff's Division at Leipzig.
