A new unit and period

Yes, I succumbed again to creating another Frundsberger unit to assist the Austrians. This time it will be an odd battalion of the third (Welle) regiment with green facings.

The emperor requested our assistance yet again to meet the Jacobin threat and three full infantry regiments were mustered into Imperial service. Most served on the Rhine/Danube front. But somehow the II/3rd Regiment was detached with an Austrian division and sent to Italy to fight the French there.

The unit is actually a number of left-over Esci 1806ish Prussians, whose fate I had been pondering when the idea struck me. In one step it helps in the building of my counter-revolutionary Austrain army and also extends the Frundsberg saga. Hurrah!

This sounds like an excellent solution. Now, of course, we want photos.
