Dave says "Time to take over the blog again and post a few images of my 15mm goodness". First let's look at the Brunswick troops from 1866 who fought for Prussia, these are conversions from the Lancashire Nassau range, easy to paint and easy to command (unless you are using James's dice).
Next come a few 1866 Hanoverians who opposed the Prussians at Langensalza, Lancashire figures again:

Austrians ... 1859 and 1866 periods covered here with Ian Kay's Irregular Miniatures. These fought Prussians, Italians and French so are a pretty flexible Army if you ever wanted to invest in one, just like their Napoleonic ancestors.
The Italians come from Minifig French converted with a pot of paint and some QRF ACW who closely resembled the Grenadiers of the 1859 and 1866 period. They look nice, but their commanders were particularly pants! See if you can work out which ACWs I converted in the last phot below:
