Skirmishing Jägers III

The first batch of figures completed after our move are some more skirmish stands.

These are based on Foundry's firing line in forage caps, but with the odd head swap and the grenades filed off the ammo pouches. Unlike that of line battalions, jäger webbing was black, including the sling, and the have green trousers to match their coats. Facing are also green, discretely piped in red with a line red strip down the outside of their trousers - as per this image:

They are painted up to represent the 2nd and 3rd companies (i.e. 1st battalion) of 21st Jägers in winter dress and their sister skirmishing companies from the 3rd battalion will be following shortly.

As the junior of the two jäger regiment, they sport blue epaulettes.

If better organised, I'd have got a gold pen to write the unit number on the rear of the pouch. Instead, I had to do it with a brush - so some are better than others.
