Miniatures Conversions in 1:72 Scale

Wuerttemberg Fußjäger-Regiment König, 1:76 Miniatures Airfix 01744

A very simple conversion. French line infantry figures have the pompom removed from the shako. The musket needs to be shortened to make it look like a Jäger rifle. The Jägers shown here are converted Airfix French Fusiliers. The two battalions are based on 38 × 38 mm Volley & Bayonet skirmish stands. During the Napoleonic Wars, the Kingdom of Württemberg raised two battalions of Jägers which became the Fußjäger-Regiment König in 1813.
