28mm WSS: Austrian Regiment Carl Joseph Lothringen


Of course I had to have this regiment when I saw the dark green coat plus those flags.

This was a 2 battalion regiment raised from Carl Ignaz (Bishop of Osnabrück and Olmütz) Duke of Lorraine and Bar's Lifeguard. It was originally one battalion strong but was strengthened to two. It got around too. It served in the early war in the Army of the Rhine, then was sent to Italy and then to Catalonia. The grenadiers wore bearskins as per Austrian tradition.
