Light Bobs

Having nothing better to do this weekend, I dug out and rehabilitated some old, poorly painted British Light Infantry for the Fort Niagara Campaign. They are the ever-reliable RSMs, straight out of the relevant Blanford and lovely to paint. I decided to do a representative few from each of the light companies present at la Belle Famille. The sharp eyed among you will notice that the pants on a couple of the figures are white. I was looking for a means of adding a bit more variety to the very-similarly uniformed troopers and remembered the 44th wore white small-clothes in their fatal encounter on the Monongahela, ans so it went. I'll be repeating this experiment on their cousins in the Line companies as well to difference them from the men of the 46th.
Note the unit designations on the back of the bases.
I'll try to have a little skirmish game soon to try out the Drums of War rules.

Happy Sunday Greg,

Another lovely paint job you have going there. You know, while there are lots of other wonderful 25-30mm lines out there right now, you just can't beat the RSM95's for correct proportions and demeanor. And, of course, red coats always catch the eye. Thanks for sharing your work and have fun with them.

Best Regards,
