Guys - For the RBR game I know someone is going to point out that the Austrian hussars are not using correct colors in some instances. Here is the history on the Austrian hussar images in both Marengo and RBR:

What we did in Campaign Marengo was this:

1. Try to keep the image count down.

2. "Clump" all Austrian hussars into TWO groups: Early (1796-97) and Later (1798-1800) using ONE image for each period.

For RBR I added in new Austrian hussar images (5). They will NOT cover the full spectrum of their hussar colors. Eventually I might put a "Mod" together that does that but for now know that the hussar uniforms will not always match their colors. For the regiments that were used the most they have a unique image. For those that were not (e.g. Blanketstein Hussar #6) they will use a "generic" hussar image.

We would have had to have 24 total hussar images to accurately represent all of the Austrian hussars and I just could not see us doing that. It took long enough to get all of the images finished as it was.

I know you will love the full spectrum of cavalry uniforms covered in the game. The Royalist, French and Austrian all have unique uniform images. Just a lovey game all way round.

I made up a quick PDF that shows the hussar regiments and their image numbers in the game. It actually works out well for the later period. In only two cases do two regiments share the same image and the colors are close enough to not even worry about it.

I am posting the PDF (Zipped) so folks can see which regiments are in the game.
