this week I finished the last 3 complete units for my American War of Independence SP2 project. I still have a unit of British grenadiers but I'm missing 1 figure, and I don't have money to buy a replacement right now unfortunately.
This week all 3 of the units are British. I have 2 units of 6 British light infantry, and 1 unit of 8 grenadiers. The grenadiers are a mix of Perry and Foundry metals and the light infantry are Perry plastic. I also had a an extra mounted commander which I painted up as a British officer with the same facings as the light units.
|24th Regiment of foot, light infantry,|
|Grenadiers of the 42nd Regiment of Foot,|
Mix of Foundry and Perry Metals.
I picked these units at random. I liked the idea of dark green horse hair crests on the "saratoga" cap so I did the lights as that unit. I just like the blue facings on grenadiers, so I picked a random unit that would have used that facing colour.
I realized last week, while talking with a friend, that i have 50+ native Americans that I kept from my FIW project, as they were both the nicest figures form that collection, and probably the best painted. I don't think they've been photographed since i touched them up, so I'll be taking pictures some time in the near future. Expect that to be my next post.
