I have moved on to the Prussian 25. Infanterie Regiment, formed from the Lützow Freikorps and their detachment of Jägers.

Time to move on to the other half of the HäT 8097 set - the Nassau Grenadiers

They need fusiliers and light troops to make up the 2nd Nassau-Usingen Light Infantry Regiment. For these I am using HäT set 8147.

I have swapped heads on one of the fusilier officers to make him a Senior Officer.

The family of King William I of the Netherlands also held the German state of Nassau, so Nassau's forces formed part of the Netherlands army. These forces comprised 8.5 battalions at Waterloo, and had a strength of over 5,000 men, or roughly 10% of the total Allied infantry (some sources suggest as many as 7,000 men). Each battalion had six companies, one of which was of grenadiers.

Can't believe that you could the collar piping in this scale. Great stuff.

Black first, yellow second. I usually paint inside out (things that go over are painted after what goes under) i.e. skin, boots, trousers, jacket, facings, belts, roll, pack, headwear, and finish with the base.
