WIP SYW French and German Jaeger

Well it has been a while since the giblets have been removed and I have been doing a little scratch building and toying with the paints, to that end I have decided to try and get my eye back in and splash some paint about in force. I have had some French grenadiers floating about since the beginning of the year so I pulled those out of the pile of shame and I also wanted to get on with some Prussian Jaeger figures

Regiment la Rein has now become Grenadiers de France (Regt 40) partly due to my hang up with the uniform for FIW but mostly because I think a full battalion for the European theatre would look jolly nice.

Grenadiers from Front Rank and Jaeger from Minden Miniatures, as usual I can see a lot of missed opportunities from the enlarge images and yes I have gone back to wash and glaze painting for the Jaeger, I really enjoy it and like the water colourist effect.

thanks for looking


  1. Great looking figures, beautiful deatils!

  2. I like these figures. There's a reverent tone to that kneeling figure-just beautiful!

  3. Thanks guys, I'm still trying to get my eye in for a reasonably fast Table Top standard so they still look a bit off. Mojo should be back up and running soon enough.

    Anne he's probably praying he doesn't collect a lump of lead while he is reloading. These Mindens are beaut figures though.

  4. Lovely work on these, the colors are marvelous.


Good, bad or otherwise I love to hear what you think..... mostly
