Officers of the 45th Foot

The spare mounted General from the Foundry British AWI High Command pack and another spare Officer figure from one of their British Command packs meant I could muster in an other Command stand for the British force in our games. I’ve painted them both in the colours of the 45th Foot, later the Nottinghamshire Regiment - after all, that’s where the figures are from in reality - and also because earlier they were Robinson’s Foot during the SYW!



For the very sharp eyed who will have noticed, I don’t yet have the 45th in my British AWI collection, but they are in the painting queue! After the next Loyalist regiment there is a further Continental regiment to paint before I get to them, but I hope they will muster in sometime in late May at my current rate of progress. We’ll have to see how it goes...

  5. Time to crack on David, never mind gallivanting around the country visiting shows.

  6. My time for cracking on is past I'm afraid, it's all more stately progress now! Will you be at Carronade or Partizan?

    1. Thanks Matt, all encouragement is welcome! The next unit has slowed me a little, what I'd thought were simple figures have proved to be fiddly.

  9. Very nice David...
    And as I have said before I really like this colour combination...

    Looking forward to seeing the unit painted.

    All the best. Aly

    1. Thanks Aly. You are right, the colour combo is pleasing on the eye. I don't anticipate finishing the 45th though much before the end of May.
