Hi David,

I really like your templates for these latest three uniforms. Simple, yet very attractive, especially the unique headgaer. I'll have to find some Austrian figures wearing this to add to one of my own fictitious armies. Enjoy the weekend!

Best Regards,

Stokes

Thanks, Stokes. :-) There are a few more to come using this headgear - including Prussian Freikorps!

Have a good weekend too.

All the best,

David.
