I painted one of your set. They are very well sculpted and painting of these models was pleasure for me.
Jaegers were formed from hunters and woodsmen. They wore standard German pattern uniform but in characteristic green-grey colour. The cuffs for Jaeger troops were in "Swedish" style with no cuff-flap and with two buttons placed horizontally. Jaeger tunics had light green pipping around their collars, the rear pleats, cuffs and shoulder-straps. For all Jaeger battalions the colour of bayonet-knot was green. The most distinctive feature of the Jaeger infantry was their shako, usually worn with a service-cover, with battalion number stencilled on the front. In general Imperial German reserve divisions had one or two battalions of Jaegers.
