Prussian Jaegers - 25mm Ros Figures

These figures are actually Ros 25mm Prussian line infantry. Way back in 1975 these were painted as Jaegers as the Prussian Jaeger figure by Ros had not been produced and so we had to make do with paint conversions.  I now have some proper Jaegers, but decided to keep these the way they are purely for nostalgic reasons. The command group were added later and were sourced from Warrior Miniatures, again before I could lay my hands on Ros command figures,

I have refurbished them and put them on new bases:

Russian Lifeguard Cossacks

A few months ago I received a surprise package from Alan of ABC Wargamers. Contained within was a variety of Minifigs cavalry, both S Range and current range. One group of figures consisted of these rather splendid Miniature Figurines Russian Cossacks, painted as a guard unit. There are seven figures in the group and the painting is very nice indeed. 

The figures appeared to have dulled over the years and so I set about freshening them up and adding a little more detail. The results were very pleasing:

 Here they are carrying out their duties as escort to the Russian General Staff:

Ros 25mm Prussian Infantry

Continuing to work through the refurbishment of some of my older figures, these Ros Prussians date back to 1975 and were getting a bit worn and shabby:

Only another 200 to go!

Garrison Persian Infantry Restoration

These figures, again from Garrison Miniatures, are listed as PE 12, Phrygian armoured infantry, with creast. Sounds more like a Star Trek race of aliens; however, I looked up Phrygia, which was an area in the centre of modern Turkey and these chaps seemingly were seconded into the Persian army once the area had been conquered.

They are lovely figures, with crisp detail and were a delight to restore:
