Last week I posted a picture of the command group for my 1870-1871 25th Hessian Division, commanded by Prinz Louis of Hesse. The figure I used for the prince was labeled on the bag in which I got him as "EXT-15 Baron von Gruber."


But I have no indication of a manufacturer. He is definitely a latter 19th Century mid-European mounted officer of distinction.

Does anyone have an idea of who manufactured him?

I believe that is a Frontier miniature.

I have used either Foundry or Great Wars Crimean wars Russian officers for my Minor German states Dukes and such..But yes that looks like the Old frontier figure.

Thanks, guys!

And I just noticed that I'll need to touch up his horse's nose. Looks like I got some silver paint on it by accident.
