Hi guys

I finished the Brunswick Oels Jagers sharpshooters, I need to add some writing and the horse emblem on the pack, I think there maybe a decal out there, I'll look into that.

I recently finished a large 15mm 1805 Russian commission, which I enjoyed, and it inspired me to do my own skirmish sized force in 28mm, although 28mm Napoleonics are only a very small percentage of my business, maybe 5-7%, I have painted maybe 4000-5000 over the last 8 years, and I can not recollect ever painting an Elite miniatures Napoleonic figure, I had seen them here and there online, and wasn't sure if I liked their style, however as they are a local Australian producer, I decided to give them a go for this project, and the package arrived today.

Well, I must say I'm surprised at how good they look in the hand, I was expecting I would give them head swaps to make them less cartoony, but I actually like them, and I will have no hesitation on buying more, each 4 man pack comes with 2 poses, so I am swapping heads to increase pose variety. Their size is also pretty good, they fit right in with Perry's, I'm well pleased with this purchase and looking forward to painting them, they are ready for some detail on the bases. I've got about 60-70 figs to do, I'm starting with 2 units of jagers.

The Brunswickers look lovely. What a difference compared to the 20mm Hinton Hunt and Minifigs I painted in Humbrol gloss back in 1970. I could drool over those of yours for some time😀.

Great work.
