Austrian Landwehr, light troops and Grenadiers

At Wagram, theoritically, each corps of the Hauptarmee was composed of 28 infantry battalions. The battalions were from several categories, 7 or 8 from line and the others from light troops, Jager or Grenzer, from Freiwillinger units, and from Landwehr.
Landwehr battalions were from Styria, Carintia, Lower Austria, Bohemia, Saltzburg etc.
Maybe the best units were from Vienna, like Vienna woods from the Avantgarde division.

As usual miniatures are from Ab range, flags Gmb design or Adolfo Ramos flags.

Grenadiers were present in the Reserve Korps, under General der Cavallerie J. Furst Liechtenstein.
17 battalions divided in 2 divisions, one German with 8 battalions and one Hungarian with 9 battalions.

    • Hi Peter,
      I was not sure about landwehr flags, so I preferred don’t give it.
      Thanks for your interest.

  1. Really nice painting job. Do you prime white and do black lining or do you prime black and add white and color as needed?

    • Hi Lorenzo,
      Thanks for your comment.
      The prime is black.
