The Jaegerkorpset (JGK, Huntsmen Corps), Denmark's Army Special Operation Forces, was first deployed in Afghanistan in 2002 as part of the multi-national Task Force Kabar.
The unit was then sent in support of the 750-strong Danish Battle Group, aka DanCon-ISAF, deployed in Helmand Province from 2006 to 2014. The JGK was used in the traditional SOF roles of direct action and special reconnaissance (a few Jaegersoldat can be seen searching a compound in the documentary Armadillo).
In 2012, as part of TF7, operators from the unit started mentoring Afghan Provincial Response Companies.

The figure represents a typical JGK Operator in a DA Ops ca 2009. This has been quite a long-term project (I started working on it last August), with a number of major custom or modified parts, but in the end I am rather happy with the result.

I would like to thank Josh/Pemgreen for his inspirational work and my son who willingly donated a Lego part so that my M/96 carbine could get a barrel of the proper dimension.

Re: Danish SOF in Helmand, Afghanistan 2009

An excellent Dane, so many fruitful labors on your part. The stories of these troops have become more available in the US of late, with films and episodic series showing on platforms like Netflix. If only Barrack Sergeant and Reload Action were still out front with trail breaking products still, but those salad days seem to be gone. Well done on doing it your own way!

Coming from such a distinguished 1/6er, it means a lot, thanks Miguel. I resisted working on "modern" projects a long time, but actually it's quite fun when you depart from boxed figures. And I keep alternating with "older" subjects for variety's sake.

Re: Danish SOF in Helmand, Afghanistan 2009

Just realized this is a complete "build" from scratch!
That is impressive work! And like Miguel points out the cammo pattern is really neat looking. Again, like Miguel says modern is not my thing either - so when I first looked at this it was ya ya another modern figure coming down the pike....

Really nice work on this!

Not exactly "complete build from scratch", except for the uniform. But it is true a number of parts were modified more or less extensively.

Did you use Spoonflower to do the camo material?
Yes, the camo comes from Spoonflower. Not 100% accurate IMHO, compared to pictures of actual garments I got from a collector friend - as an example the green spots seem a bit wide and too light in colour. But creating a better camo would have meant blinding hours on the computer, and it is near enough to fit the purpose.
