New Prussian Jager

Readers of some of my earlier posts will know painting is not my favourite part of the hobby. Nevertheless, progress is occasionally made, and I have been able to add these Prussian jager to my Seven Years War collection recently.

The figures are, of course, RSM95s (what else?). I decided to create a composite battalion of four stands, for a bit of variety. The two stands on the left are from the Feldjager-Corps zu Fuss, what you might call the 'normal' Prussian jager. The other two stands are from the jager detachment of Frei-Corps Le Noble. These latter stands use the 'Austrian Jager Advancing' figure from RSM, with the hat plume removed, plus a standard officer figure. All painted mostly in Humbrol enamels with the odd acrilic colour for the detail areas, then finished with a coat of acrylic matt varnish.

I intend to give these chaps their first outing in my next game, which will be a refight of the Grant/Asquith scenario 'Encirclement or Breakout', from their book Scenarios For All Ages. With luck a report of the action should form my next post. Bet you can't wait!

Nice to see some tricornes around! Nice work, too :-)
I shall await your battle report with anticipation. :-)


Hi Keith,

You visited my blog and left a comment that interrested me. You say that you would like to play with 'our sort' of set up.

Nows your chance then. There is a place open to play a Crusades demo game at Sheffield Triples on Sat. Sun. or both. It's gonna be a biggy - over 1000 Perrys including 400 cavalry figs (see blog). You only have to commit to play for the day - the 'Lads' will field punters.

I understand that Bristol is a long way away, but if you are interrested, contact me via my latest blog post.

James, thank you for your generous offer. I would love to come up and broaden my wargame horizons, but as you say it is a fair way.

I will have to check the diary and see if the C-in-C Home Forces agrees.

Perhaps I could let you know in a few days. Thanks again, Keith.

Lovely stuff. I have just got hold of Scenarios for all Ages myself and it would be great to see one played out, roll on the battle report!
