Re: Jägers in greatcoats had me thinking

Haha! Liked that Allan!
Well... I never said what was in the "tea"!!!

My favourite whiskey is Bushmills Irish whiskey.
Not being a fan of mulled wine, this time of year I add some Stone's Ginger Wine for a nice "warming" seasonal drink!
Don't mind Glenfiddich whisky either.

Yes I think some Napoleonic "in camp" sets would be something different and interesting, especially if include cavalry settling down for the evening. They could be dedicated to that subject entirely or be like Strelets 1st set & include various other activities like a surgeon with wounded scene.

Yes Merry Christmas to you too and of course everyone else on the forum & of course Strelets themselves.
And of course heres hoping for a healthy & safe 2022 & remainder of 2021 to everyone.

Re: Jägers in greatcoats had me thinking

I think Roger has said it James; rough-tough Highlanders might don a pair of cosy woollen 'trews' when it got a bit nippy around the ankles; but a greatcoat???

And isn't there that scene in the film 'Waterloo' where the 92nd Highlanders in bonnets and kilts are marching past Wellington and Gordon in the pouring rain, on the night of 17th June?

I'm not sure that Highlanders in greatcoats would sell that well. Amongst other things, those coats would cover the kilts, and then there would be no tartan to paint!!:upside_down_face:

Fellas, relax it was a joke about the Highlanders.

Phew, that's a relief, thanks James!!:wink:

I do like your idea of more Austrians (and other nations) in greatcoats though. In fact, for those Napoleonic campaigns from c. 1809 onwards, Austrian line infantry, Russian line infantry, Bavarians, French of course etc, all advancing and/or firing line, and in greatcoats. All very useful.

Re: Jägers in greatcoats had me thinking

Obviously it missed the mark. You get that with comedy, especially the amateur kind!! :grimacing:

There are plenty of options for more of Strelets' lovely Napoleonic range, aren't there? I am sure that we'll see some fine sets in 2022, beginning with Russian jägers in greatcoats, it would seem!

All the best for the silly season and New Year to you Mark and to all who read this ,


Re: Jägers in greatcoats had me thinking

Thanks James, Seasonal Good Wishes to you and yours too!:santa:

Re: Jägers in greatcoats had me thinking

Hi James,

I thought it was the Geordies that never wore a jacket, spent a drunken weekend in Newcastle where it was snowing and the ladies were looking fine in little black dresses and little else.
We Scots are a hardy bunch as we can get 4 seasons in one day (snow blizzards in June), where I stay.

It keeps it interesting shall we say

merry Xmas and I hope Santa is good to you
