I am sorry, but not one uniform shown above even looks like it belongs to the Austrian Army of the Napoleonic Era. The closest is the Lancer. Some specifics are the red epaulettes and the red football shoulder pads that the kneeling infantryman and the artillerist at the bottom has. (The Austrian Army didn't have them at all.) If anyone disputes this, I would like to ask them to tell us all what Austrian regiment or branch of service these illustrations represent. (Please.)
I would like to come to pixelpusher's defense and say that yes, while the red trim on some of the units may not represent them accurately, there *were* Austrian units with red trim, including epaulettes. Also, white became more and more often the standard uniform color for jackets and pants as time went on, for many kinds of units. For example, many of the the Austrian Chevauxleger, as well as the Dragoons, after 1801. Also, Infantry and Chevauxleger regiments often had red facings, of course, if that is any help, as did Dragoons (Dragoon cuffs were also often red). I have also seen images of Austrian cavalry with red crests (we have already dealt with criticisms that helmets are not an exact match--again, we are economizing for several reasons, already mentioned above, and furthermore, as everyone knows, helmets often underwent several evolutions during the period--at any rate, again, we're trying to use a consistent model across nations for the benefit of playability.) And, I have seen images of Austrian infantry units--non-Hungarian fusiliers, I believe--with red epaulettes. Naturally, standardization was rare, if not altogether non-existent.
The figures are way, way too muscular and they look like they're wearing spandex.
Speaking for myself, I just can't see anything wrong with them--trousers did tend to be fairly close-fitting, and I can't really detect much musculature, but, as Jason said, we do appreciate the input.
Of course, we will be discussing all decisions right up to the last minute, but we do feel that, for example, moving to nearly all-white (or white/extremely light blue) uniforms for Austrian troops was, on the whole, a good decision. I can see how one might be puzzled by a single set of colors for each type of Austrian unit (or any other nation, for that matter), but again, we're making efficient and eminiently playable decisions, as described above.
Of course, that doesn't mean we don't welcome constructive criticism such as yours. We will do our best with all helpful comments we receive.
