Just when I thought it was safe to mount the Hanoverian jager battalion ....., the realized that I was one casting short. After some searching various places over two days, I found the AWOL soldier, and an officer who obviously was sent to find him, hiding out in amongst a bunch of unpainted Prussians.
Now that he is rejoined with his comrades, I can present to you the complete battalion of the Grubenhaben Jagers. The figures are from the Perry miniatures line, Hanoverian Grubenhaben center and command is the pack type. Most of the colors were craft paints, from Ceramcoat or Blick Art brands, although the gunmetal is Vallejo and the yellow for the sashes is from an acrylic tube of cadmium yellow.
A second view, showing most of the battalion. 18 castings strong and ready to participate. The Grubenhaben Jager battalion was one of two Jager (the other being the Luneberg) and three line battalions in Kielmansegge's brigade. I hope to have one of the line battalions done this month.
It seems that I will be able to finish off the rest of the two brigades
of allied foot this summer, as I now have almost all the castings I need
for both Best's and Kielmansegge's brigades.
I hope to have a battle to fight in our imaginary campaign of an ersatz early 19th Century campaign. More soon.
