Although it's not a major game played here in GHQ my War of 1812 collection does see action from time to time. I felt that to give a better game on the larger table it could stand a little expansion and so on a trip over to Foundry I added a few figures. Specifically: two units of US infantry (one in full kit marching and one in the grey uniform of Scott's Brigade in a firing pose); a gun crew; and a pack of mounted officers to make an additional command stand.
As a start I've been working on the additional regiment for Scott's Brigade. Now, the original two I already have were painted perhaps 20 years ago or more in a style I used then and probably with a make of acrylic paints I no longer use. It seemed foolish to me to try to recreate an old style and so I've settled for a decent match of colours but in a more contemporary layered style. I'm quite pleased with how they have turned out ~
Next up was the additional command stand I sorted out from the Generals pack and a couple of spare officers sporting top hats. This will be the Command base for any Militia I deploy in games ~
