I'd started work on Cornwallis' light infantry of the 1780 campaign for Camden and Cowpens some time ago. It consisted of the light companies of the first and second battalion, 71st of Foot, the light company of the 16th of Foot and the light company of a loyalist regiment. Obviously, these were not the five bases of light infantry I needed for Hubbardton at PolderCon, but the idea of painting another five seemed a bit daunting for now. More on those below. First, some Loyalists.
I finished four of these Scotsman earlier last year and started on the other four shortly before the start of the Challenge. Mostly because I have awesome planning skills when it comes to the hobby...
So, all in all a long blog for not too many points. The true participants in the Challenge are 14 figures, for 70 points in total.
ByronM: A great start to a Wednesday here from Jasper, with various excellent black powder units, a large number of which have been converted to be more accurate to the period he is doing. All of them are extremely well painted as well. Amazing clear brushwork Jasper and great colours and groundwork as well. My favourite is the first batch though with the striped trousers and the officer holding his hat by his side which are great, and then on top of that the flesh tones and facial expressions there are stunning! Amazing work!
