Austrian 1st regiment of Uhlans 1809

A small break from the 100 says campaign this time, but with more Waterloo to come ASAP. Wagram  in 1809 was one of the biggest battles of the Napoleonic wars and Austria fielded some of the most colourful mounted units of the era, the Uhlans (lancers) among them

The 3 regiments was distinguished by the colour of their chapka tops, the first regiment having yellow, with the rest of the uniform common to all the regiments.

Horses were painted with Americana acrylics and I think I have managed to figure out how the various shades -so different from Vallejo- blend together
