|As with the whole Perry AWI range the poses and sculpts are very nice. I especially like the kneeling poses and that the two who are fine have wrapped their rifle slings around their wrists for support.|
Another week in February, another small batch of 28mm SYW figures from me. This time around it is 6 members of Freytag's Jaegers who served in the Hanoverian army. The Anglo Allies raised Jaeger Corps from 4 different German state - Hanover, Hessen-Kassel, Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel and Schaumburg-Lippe (a variable meet up of Imagination bloggers).
I had a set of 6 Hessian Jaegers plus officer and hornist plus a few left overs , the result of changing rules unit sizes to fit rule systems! As leftovers had been previously painted as Freytag's corps, I ordered another pack of Jaegers from Messrs Perry and Perry to serve as a group of Freytag's Jaegers for my SYW Sharp Practice project. The figures are from the AWI range, sold as Hessian Jaegers but work equally well in the SYW as Hanoverians.
|Uniforms are very basic as fits a Jaeger unit - green jacket and waistcoat with green facings, white breeches and grey gaiters.|
Here's the requisite Folky arty print for historical reference.
|Darn I missed the flower pot mounted in the tricorne!|
|The Backside view shows the nice details in these sculpts. They are packing a hide knack sack, canvas haversack and metal canteen plus cartridge box.|
|Front side view with the 6 new lads flanked by the officer and hornist on un-tufted bases.|
By my count that is 6 28mm figures for a whopping 30 points not including the two pre-existing Jaegers.
