I managed to find time to complete these three Prussian Jagers this week. They are PN/28 Prussian Jager (Jackbooted Riflemen), firing. I was aided by the fact that these are actually quite easy to paint being mostly dark colours and having no nasty white straps.
Painting these figures was a particularly nostalgic experience because the first wargame unit I ever painted completely by myself (at the age of twelve) was comprised of these same Hinton Hunt Jagers – although they were all in the advancing position. Back then I used Humbrol Matt Enamel’s with a very limited palette of colours (there wasn’t even a flesh colour available at the time so I used the Gloss shade “Mushroom”) but the finished figures weren’t too bad, all things considered. I’m certainly glad that things have moved on with the introduction of acrylics and the huge colour choice now available.
