My Wargaming Week, 13th March 2016

Hi all.

This week has seen progress on the Queen's Rangers with my interpretation of how they may have looked in mid 1777. This was before they began wearing the well known roundabouts and leather caps. In 1777 they were a loyalist infantry unit with a similar structure to a regular line battalion.

Below is thier commander of the time, Major Weymss. His base still needs finishing and I might do some more work on his face.
The rest of the unit is painted but these bases will be changed for deeper ones before the groundwork goes on.

1. Centre companies
2. Grenadier company
3. Highland company
4. Light company.

I have also made some casualty markers using the dice frames and round bases that I bought at Hammerhead last week.
And some disordered markers using some Litko products from Figures in Comfort:


Lastly, here is the next unit on hone production line; 2nd Continental Light Dragoons. These have been block painted and washed. Highlighting next...

Cheers

All of the figures look great. I think the Major's face is quite animated and lovely.

Very nice AWI collection. Love the fur capped grenadiers in green coats.

Nice paint jobs!

The disordered markers are very bright.. :o) Could you do the same using different coloured dice instead??
