Austrian Revolutionary cavalry

I have continued with the production of troops for the French Revolutionary wars in Italy with a couple more cavalry regiments for the Austrians. This time I've added the Liechtenstein Hussars and one of my ficticious Frundsberg units.

The Hussars are a bit of a composite as they are Italeri French Hussars on British Light Dragoon horses, but they are quite close to the original style. The Liechtenstein Hussars fought in Italy at Marengo.

The Frundsberg Light Dragoons are a straight painting conversion of the Italeri British Light Dragoons. I did buy a few to many of these, but this is an excellent use of the spare figures.

All I need to sort now is the artillery, who wore a similar coat to the infantry with a corsehut.
