Hessian Jaeger, 1778

Here's a AWI Hessian Jaeger based on, I believe, a Peter Copeland drawing. This is my second version of a Jaeger from the Revolution. There's just something about that uniform and kit that makes the fingers itch.

The head is from Hornet and the rifle is a Historex conversion. The body is made up of AVES, MS and Kneadatite.

Sorry for necroposting, but man, I want one! I recently discovered my my Irish Grandmother wasn't a Maloney. In fact, the name was Meinone and the patriarch of the family was Michael Meinone of Mainz. He was a member of Wittgenstein's Company of the Hesse-Hanau Jaeger-Chasseurs.

Your figure rocks! I was planning on trying my hand at one, but I think digital painting will have to do.

Great effort. Really like the result!
