28mm SYW Austrians: IR42 Gaisruck

This is one of the few Austrian regiments (two in total, I think) that may well have had purple or violet facings. I say 'may have' because we cannot be absolutely sure due to colour die issues in the 18th century. Add red to blue and you get purple and this may have been accidental.
This regiment was present at Kolin, Leuthen, Hochkirch and Torgau – so basically all the big battles of the SYW.
