Here's a Prussian Nutcracker!

Well, I managed to assemble the two 25mm MiniFig cannon yesterday. The plastic crew has been washed off, dried, and await mold line removal. And the rest of the Spencer Smith cavalry wait patiently to have their mold lines removed. Best of all, I’ve found a very Prussian-looking grenadier nutcracker to share (at left). Isn’t he fierce and martial in his bearing? Now where are my walnuts, almonds, Filbert, and Brazil nuts?

Santa Claus called back into military service, or a regimental pioneer without his leather apron?

I'm enjoying the pictures of nutcracker soldaten.

I'm rather partial to cashews, thank you very much.

What a splendid fellow. Years ago I had an ancient aunt who had a fabulous nut cracker which we snotty children thought was great fun. It was a mechanical naval sailor who gradually turned a brass ships wheel which crushed the said nuts. It kept us entertained for hours. Regretfully I have no idea what happened to it. The sailor certainly did not have the splendid uniform of your examples.
