Minot Prussians finally finished.

Back in 1975 I bought some Barry Minot 1806 Prussians, from I think Ted Surens shop in Lower Sloane Square, to make into some Prussian Jager for my Charles Grant inspired gaming.  Having cut off the bayonets I started painting the figures based on the uniform in the old Greenwood and Ball booklet on the Prussian army. 

As you can see I did not get very far.  

In the last 37 years these figures have been on my painting table, so to speak, and have followed me around the country as I moved from house to house. For the last 20 years they lived in a box.  I knew they where there.   

Well its 2012 now and I thought it was about time I finished them up. So with no more a do last week I got them out of their box, added a RSM Officer to make up the numbers, and finally finished them off. 
So it has take me 37 years to get them done  - from start to finish.

With 37 years of "training time" they should be very good on the table top.

Hi Littlejohn

These are slightly large 30mm and will not go with 40mm figures

DAF - These figures are long OOP. But they are nice
