Really like the look of that army, and I canít help wondering where the dragoons came from. Not sure about the cavalry in busby though as I donít recall any units in the Austrian army wearing it in 1914.

The Dragoons look like Irregular Miniatures to me, not so sure about the other Cavalry.

Those figures are stunning as is all your work, Lurkio. I particularly like the basing. Approximately how long did it take you to complete this force from start to finish?

We be been through this before  :D. Itís all just technique and not sweating the small stuff. All the tutorials are there on the SB gallery.

Anyone can do it. Spraycans, drybrushes and washes are all you need for these monotone armies

I checked out the Irregular site and he does do some interesting and useful stuff, including 15mm planes for WWI. However I did notice that lancers are listed among his Austrian cavalry. Unlike most other European countries, particularly Germany, the Austrians abandoned the lance, but not the uniform, in the 1880s. If you want to include Austrian Uhlans in your army I would suggest using the PP Uhlan head with the Irregular Dragoon figure as a temporary fix until PP cavalry figures are available.
