Unboxing Warzone Resurrection: Baron Leopold von Jaeger III

Jaeger considers himself a hunter more than a military man; he spent his childhood honing the art of the hunt in the jungles of House Piquarde, near Helmutsport on Venus. The skills he developed while hunting Devilcat, Venusian Python and alike on his ancestral home, have placed him in good stead within the Bauhaus Military and specifically the Bauhaus Artillery Korps (BAK), where he has excelled for 40 or so years. He is a strange sight to behold upon the battlefield, decked in the finery of a Bauhaus Kapitan, over which he wears his tatty fifty year old heavy leather hunting jacket. Perched upon his arm is his faithful hunting hawk ‘Hans’.

He wears a monocle and has the most magnificent of mustaches. Jaeger’s talents have afforded him the leniency of his superiors in regards to his less than standard tactics and appearance. When an enemy needs to be hunted in a brash show of Bauhaus military force, Jaeger is the man for the job. His befuddled appearance abelies a shrewd and tactical mind, a mind that sees a battle as something beneath him; much rather would he be hunting down a stealthy and intelligent foe in a series of precise attacks and feints, finally finishing the worthy opponent in a large, precise and devastating bombardment, obliterating them from existence. He scorns any mission given to him that does not spark his hunter’s interest, giving it the least of his attention. This has led to no end of disciplinaries, but his exemplary record elsewhere has ensured his current batch of superiors utilize the ‘old Baron’ where he is at his best.

Jaeger will always be found amongst the howitzers and cannons of his korps, surrounded by tables filled with maps and antiquated instruments of cartography and survey, reams of ink and guava splattered plans billow in the wind, detailing his target and the intricacies of the particular hunt. He will often go beyond his station, taking control of the larger army, ignoring the counter of his field superiors, wielding their men as if his own. Placing them, repositioning them and distributing them ready so that they will funnel the prey. Constantly muttering to himself as he discusses his plans with Hans, often getting into loud argument with the tempestuous bird as it’s ‘suggestions’ infuriate the Baron. Eventually, the moment will come when he has positioned, or funnelled, his prey. ‘Check mate’ he will mutter under his breath as Hans squawks and flaps in excitement. ‘FIRE!’ he screams before his guns reply.

The Baron is an new addition to the MC universe, and a really cool one as well. Ingame he can do some nice things making your Artillery more effective. So on to what we get in the box then.

Here's all the things you get in the box, one 30 mm round lipped base, the model an one stat card.

On the backside you see how to assemble him.

The model comes in three parts, details are excellent and I didn't find any mold lines or air bubbles at all. 

The stat card with all the necessary information you need to use him in your games. Love the art here as well.
A great addition to your artillery. 
Many nice little details, like his shoulderpads, medals and the monocle. Oh and the shell he is standing on. 

I might have put his right arm a little wrong but that is easily solved with greenstuff. 

Here he is assembled, really easy to put together with super glue. The details is really crisp just check out the markings on his shoulderpads, lovely! The model oozes character and I can't wait to get him painted and put him on the battlefield.


  1. This whole range of figures looks like a lot of fun.

    1. No problem, expect more soon. Totally agree with you, it's an awesome range of miniatures.
