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.

A Little Pfeffernüsse for Christmas

No, not cookies... sorry.

These are the Jägers zu Pfeffernüsse, commanded by Colonel Eric von Strüdelheim
I tried for a more mixed flocking than I usually do on regular line units, adding in some dry grass shades of static grass and some bits of ground foam in different patches.

Glad Yule, Happy Winter Solstice and Merry New Year to all!

Opening a Pandour's Box

Introducing another Batrachian unit, the Pandours du Pinque, commanded by Colonel Clouseau. The colors in this depiction may not be quite true to life. The coats are white (well, I use very light gray, saving pure white when I want something really white) and the hats, trousers, cuffs and sashes are a violet (Vallejo's blue violet on top of a black basecoat, followed by Vallejo royal purple - so it's more purplish in real life than it appears here). These are from Foundry, where most of my troops (and civilians) are recruited from these days.
