Regiment of the Day
Last varnish experiment before settling on a 'standard' way to apply the varnish.
A few bases of Garde Grenadiers and supporting Garde Jaeger. (white plumes for the Guard - line Grenadiers have the black plumes I believe).
Whilst on the subject of massive plumes, note that the officer is white over black with silver shako fittings, and NCOs are black tip over white with gold shako fittings. Privates are all white with white shako fittings, and a silver Garde star.
I don't really know whether that is 100% correct for the given campaign .. any comments on that ?
Jaegers operating in pairs, as they should. From what I can tell, the only difference (worth painting at this scale) is that the Garde Jaegers have the little 'Lintzen' stripes on the collar and cuffs. Probably a bit of extra lanyard as well for the marksman award.
If you can dig up a more recent East German DDR braided lanyard - they are almost identical to the 1813 model.
Extreme gloss finish for the Gardesmen - slightly OTT perhaps, but they do stand out on the table.
