The figures are "Black Hat" bought some 2 years ago so they jumped the painting queue considerably. They were all part of a British army box set but painting the uniforms Grey with red trim has allowed me to do 1/2 as French as the uniforms were VERY similar in design if not colour!
There were only 4 foot troops left to paint the rest being finished last year. So I thought to finish them off. Again a French and British standard bearer., a British Drummer and a French Sargent. The standards were not present but a pin mage a good substitute at this scale with a flag of the period popped on top.
A total of 18 Cavalry and 4 on foot. And 4 simple flags if you want to push the boat out.
As I have no more painting for other people this week I will either start some 20mm Arab/Israeli stuff or some US FOW desined for eBay. Cheers Guys
Beautiful work Clint (and a very nice points bomb I must add)! I really like the bright green facings against the red uniforms on the cavalry - very smart. I also like the look of round bases for the cavalry. I think I first saw this with LotR stuff and really liked the aesthetic. It think it works especially well with skirmish figures as they don't need to have that boot-to-boot look of formed units.
Question: What is it about 'Songs of Drums and Shakos' that doesn't fit the American Civil War with you?
Again, a very enjoyable diversion. Thanks!
