A Command Stand for Scott's Brigade in the War of 1812-15

Having sorted out the matter of ADCs for the War of 1812-15 armies I turned my attention next to the matter of a Command stand specifically for Scott's Brigade in the US army. I've several figures in the appropriate uniform left over so I selected an officer and a junior NCO to accompany the remaining mounted US general. As with the vast bulk of the collection they are all the venerable Foundry figures sculpted by Aly Morrison ~



I've several other figures in the summer uniform still left, so I expect to render them as some additional small skirmish stands, just for the look of the game you understand. I mount 2 or 3 appropriate figures on a 30mm round MDF base and they are ready to fulfil their role. In the meantime I've started on a unit of Perry Miniatures AWI Militia for our AWI games.

  3. Splendid David...

    “They’re over there”
    “No they are not sir”
    “Shut up sergeant and do what you are told”
    “Okay.... were doomed”

    All the best. Aly

  5. Perhaps I should be the Americans next time, that sums up my usual performances, in fact paint similar for all conflicts.

    1. That is genuinely funny Phil. I’m sure the run of luck will balance out over the year.
