Now and again it's nice to have a break from painting up big units and take time out to finally paint the odds and sods that have been sitting in your 'extras' box for months or even years. Fellow Southern Strategist, Geoff Martin, gave me a hand-full of figures that were surplus to his requirements that fall into this category and I thought it rude if I didn't get around to painting them.
The first were a couple of well-known Perry AWI Hessian jagers; with the officer being modelled on the famous Captain Ewald. I didn't have a command stand for my Front Rank Hessian jager unit, so this stand will fit in nicely.
Geoff gave me three spare Wargames Foundry figures from their Elizabethan Pirate range that will double up as part of my Scottish Reiver force. I'm still to decide what other figure brand to use for the rest of the force, but I think Perrys' Moss Troopers from their ECW range will probably count for the mounted reivers.
Until next time!
