The occasional ramblings of a historical wargamer
These jaegers look so cold! I like that they are wearing forage cap. Do you suppose they could see service in the Crimea mid 19th century?
Yes I agree, just looking at them makes you just want to reach for a cognac to warm up! They won't suit the Crimea. These where leggings whereas in the Crimea they wore boots, and they wore the greatcoat differently.
Beautiful and cold looking infantry...excellent and atmospheric job Mark!
Thank you Phil.
Makes me feel like lighting up my wood-burner! Great looking unit.
Yes I enjoyed this unit. I have another type of unit in a winter setting just completed and will post images over the weekend.
Nice paint job as always Mark....you must have quite a collection of Russkies by now
Thanks mate. All the infantry is done now. There is a dragoon regiment ready for the painting table next week. Artillery next then some cuirassiers. After that the WWI East Africans and the War of 1812.
They look fantastic, very atmospheric. The photography and the backdrop are well done as well.
Thank you Michael. I do like that backdrop...just the right amount of winter shadows.
