45th Foot for the AWI

The last unit of my AWI expansion project to march across the painting desk and deploy into GHQ is the 45th Foot. I chose to represent these simply because in earlier times during the SYW they had been Robinson's Foot, a nod to Phil you might say. The figures are the venerable Foundry figures sculpted by the Perrys. They may be old but, like me, they are easy to deal with! The flags are from GMB Designs, I highly recommend them.
Here they are for review: firstly the whole regiment  drawn up in line, followed by a couple of closer shots for those of a strong constitution ~




I've several of the plastic sprues given away with the last WI so no doubt I shall return to new units for the theatre , but not just yet. Next in the queue are some additional mounted Militia Colonels from Perry Miniatures, a part of the Partizan haul.

    1. Thank you George, but the truth is I could do more but for hand and eye issues.

  6. Well up to the standard of their namesake, just hope they don't shoot me in the 45th foot.
