Capitan Miniatures expands their model line with their new Brunswick-Oels Jaegers Sharpshooter (obviously, they’ve not had a lot of Jaegers before they started shooting, otherwise it wouldn’t be so sharp).
From them to you:
The Brunswick-Oels Jaëgers landed in Lisbon on October 1810. The Regiment comprised 12 companies and a regimental headquarters. Three companies were sharpshooters companies, armed with the Baker rifle. These companies were detached to serve with the British 4th and 5th division, one company served with the 3rd battalion of the 1st Regiment of foot (Royal Scots)., the others were with the Crauford´s Light division.
They served in the peninsula many battles and actions as crack skirmishers, like the famous 95th Rifles and the KGL Sharpshooters.
The uniform was slightly different from the other companies of the Brunswick-Oels.
This is the first time that this special troops are sculpted in 28mm, and the first in our RIFLES series, that will include units that use this weapon in the Napoleonic Wars.
Available end of May, 6 miniatures sculpted by Michael Broadbent plus a decal sheet for the backpack and water canteen.
