A Christmas Surprise

Due to winter storms restricting official travel the Waldorf Waldjaegers have had time to be gathered together. They are commanded by Major Holzhacker, and sometimes accompanied by Pfrank Bach, the famous natural pfilosopfer, when he is not busy with other duties or off on one of his expeditions.

Good-looking fellows. I particularly appreciate the Christmasy red and green pom-poms.

A very pleasant surprise to discover them so soon!

In the same way as Saint Georges is the patron of cavalrymen and Sainte Barbe that of artillerymen and engineers, is Saint Nicholas the saint patron of Jaeger in the League?
And, yes, green -the green of evergreen holly, fir and mistletoe and of the new vegetation to come- was the traditional color of Saint Nicholas / Sinterklaas before Santa Claus was enslaved by those who had stollen the name of an old cajun medicine...

Greetings !

Thanks, Jeff :-)

Could be, Jean-Louis, could be.
Batrachia won't be neglected, but will likely have to wait until after the New Year.
I'm not following the old cajun medicine reference, but you have me intrigued...

I appreciate all of the knowledge and inspiration you guys share with the rest of us!
Thanks and have a Happy Winter Solstice!

Rafa,
Pfrank Bach is one of the noteworthies of the Soweiter League. A natural pfilsofer noted for expeditions to far-flung realms from whence he brings back various and sundry wildlife for the League's National Zoo. He was previously depicted at http://soweiterleague.blogspot.com/2007/08/royalty-and-natural-pfilosopfy.html
