Prussian Jager: [Almost] Finished!

And hot on the heals of the last post, here are the almost finished figures for the Prussian Jager. I say “almost” because I’ll select a couple from this half-dozen to send on to my forum friend in Germany; Jan, aka ‘MABO’. These two selected soldiers will probably be subject to a little bit more tinkering before I’m satisfied enough to send them through the post.

They’ll have to wait though; the HaT Nassau Grenadiers need finishing off next. They seem to be coming along nicely so they shouldn’t be too much longer.

Interestingly, I compared these finished figures with ones I’d painted a few years ago, which were amongst the first model plastic soldiers I’d ever painted. The old ones were okay, but I like to think that these last few years have enabled me to make these new ones distinctly better.

Now, on a personal level, I have to state that this past week has been something of a challenge. Problems with my health (very uncharacteristic of me) have seen me struggling. Even today, I’m finishing off these figures with nerve damage to my painting hand that’s lasted for over a month now (a consequence of D.I.Y. and not figure painting: a salutary lesson there to us all, I think!). In addition, I’m struggling with a winter cold and a muscle spasm in my left shoulder! None of which has stopped me from nearly finishing this pleasurable project, I’m happy to say.  Ah well, I’m feeling a little better today and have rediscovered some positive attitude, so I can at least state that I seem to be on the mend! Enough about my moans: here are the Prussians!
