Hessian Musketeer, 1781

This is a figure I've wanted to do for some time. The subject was inspired by a Don Troiani study. The pose is different than the study, it's rather plain, but it's in this "shoulder firelock" position, that a soldier is typically seen performing in that period.

The head is from Hornet and the musket is a Shenandoah conversion. All painted in acrylics.






















Austro-German Legion 1814


This figure was inspired by an illustration in the Osprey book- "The Austrian Army of the Napoleonic Wars 1: Infantry"
