|Present - Fire!!!|
Like last week's Light Infantry, these chaps have the light green facings of the 24th Regiment of Foot (mirroring my 15mm Zulu War army). Unlike my Rangers and Indians where I piled terrain on their bases to reflect them being deep 'in the woods', I've left these guys with a minimum of detritus to reflect them being more in more open terrain as regular troops.
Remarkably, they survived the first battle this week with only two losses. But only by the skin of their teeth as they made a tactical withdrawal under a hail of tomahawks with a screen of skirmishers protecting them.
|My first time painting Redcoats - so much lace and detail...|
Commanding them is the dapper Major George Brinkworth. A former Gentleman ranker, under the Sharp Practice 2 random character generation process, it was revealed that he has the "Impressive Weapon!" skill - something that I remind Dux of with unfailingly humorous regularity!
|Ooohhh thats a big one isn't it Dux! Much more Impressive than yours...|
All figures are 28mm by Warlord Games. Pile of supplies from my bits box.
Wonderful work Paul! Your 'Frontier Aflame' campaign with Dux sounds like an absolute blast and, hey, no shield-shaming while still having all the benefits of sporting an, erm, 'impressive weapon'! What's not to like, right?
All of your attention to detail has paid off with these lads, Paul, especially on the drummer and Maj. Brinkworth. Very clean brushwork. I also like the differentiation in the groundwork between your bush skirmishers and these close-order fellows from the Line.
This detachment of British regulars will give you 51 points, with a pip added for the fella maintaining the beat. Well done sir!
