I'm building up some soldiers to reproduce a drawing of the battle of fort malborghet.
I will add some of these decals soon.

The French Infantry Officer and Soldier are new ones?
Those I haven't seen before. Do you also have a larger version for the library?

I'll reply to your question "Would be nice to have a gallery of the stickers" in the library thread.

It seems some talented torso designers joined the board when I was away!
They look very clean and good. Bravo!
Could you please take close-up pictures of your home made shakos? They look very good to me!

Yes they are new ones. I will upload a larger image to my brickshelf gallery later on.

These decals are made based on a picture showing french troops storming the fort malborghet.

Here are some pictures from some previous work.

The Ulan, Husar, and top hat is made completly from some modelling clay.

http://www.brickshel...onic/Austrians/

There you also can see a top hat rasped down to a shako.

I have a question that you or Mosana might be able to answer.
What was the purpose of the metal plate?

Yes. That is a gorget. It was a throwback to mediaeval armour, and was worn by officers of most countries in the Napoleonic Wars just as a way to distinguish them.

It's the first time I hear that name. Thanks Mosana!
Now I could find the relevant wikipedia article for gorget.

Nice army! The line infantry torso looks very good on a minifig!

Can you give us some background regarding the events at fort malborghet?
I never heard about that fortress.

I never heard about that fortress.

Hptm Hensel got the task to stop the french forces when they followed the Austrian army 1809 through the Kanaltal (Friaul).
This was achieved with the fort malborghet. There he stopped 50.000 french forces for more then 5 days. So that the rest of the austrian army could reach a better defensive zone.
The success was finally supported through french troops taking a small path behind the fort.

Therefore you somethimes also can find the term austrian termophyles for this fight.

In the pictures on brickshelf there are already some Austrians. But I don't have brown torsos therefore they don't look correct at the moment.

The existing Austrian army you can find under:

I've added all the torso's of this thread in the library (those that were still missing).
Just to be certain, the one above is an Austrian Light Cavalry uniform?

The only thing which is missing now is somebody who grinds the shakoos out of the top hats.

Since Bonaparte has raised a lot of new troops, we have to be prepared:

Posted Image

The troops now consist of:
- a regiment of light infantry (Tyrolian Jaegers)
- a regiment of German/Hungarian Infantry
- a gun train with train staff, and artillery crew using the "Wurmsitz"
- a regiment of unmounted light dragoons
- an escort of mounted light dragoons

soon expected:
- cuirassiers
- hussars
- dragoons

More you can see on: Brickshelf
