Re: That's metal times three

The differences are minimal. From pictures it seems that the Bavarian cuirassiers had a helmet with a single nasal bar, while the Austrian helmets had none. But probably there were some variants, so I think you can use both. Another source says that the Bavarian cuirass was not blackened nor polished but of a dull steel colour.
They will certainly be fun to paint. However, if you want to go for historcal accuracy, most probably neither Austrians nor Bavarians were actually wearing the helmet during the WoSS but the tricorne. Seems Bavarians did wear the helmet only up to 1702 and the Austrians only when fighting the Turks. I'm still going to include them with helmets, just for the fun of it.
