My foray into recreating my Altefritzenburg C18th ImagiNation in the C19th for this year’s Ayton game continues, this time with the Jaegers. These are the 1st Battalion of the Altefritzenburg Jaeger Brigade.  The figures are Spencer Smith Classic  Franco-Prussian War Prussian Jaeger. They are in the traditional Altefritzenburg green and red. I kept the jackets simple, partly to aid painting and partly because not all the detail is uniformly cast on all poses. The figures are nice and the arms (one on each, either left or right) fit together well with minimal work. Just super glue them and then run a little liquid super glue over the join to seal and fill the gap.

Rather than base them singly I went for 50x40mm two to a base. 50mm is my standard frontage for my 28mm and I figured skirmishers based in pairs works well. I may consider re-basing some of my other stuff…

More to come soon. Only four weeks to go ’til the game!!!!

  1. These look great! When I decided to get into 25mm 19th Century Imaginations, I chose some figures that I got as part of a deal, and just began modifying them. They were ACW figures, so needless to say, the uniforms of my two main belligerent nations look an awful lot like Union Blue and Confederacy Gray.

  2. Four weeks is plenty. Honest! 🙂

    I had only intended doing a couple of units for the Ayton game but after EB offloaded his SSM on me I feel I’m slipping into a new project…

    @Chuck,- These will be seeing action (along with a lot more esoteric troops) in the Alt-ACW game in May.

    Thanks for the comments
