AWI: British Guards
Another unit for the Brits, a standard BP guards battalion - blue facings.
These are again from the Accurate/IMEX Set 512 British Redcoats and not too bad as figures go - apart from the smaller size which I have already whined about in previous posts.
Unit command with Colonel leading from the front and the drum sergeant - who took a while to get right.
No standard bearers for the unit as apparently all the guard units left their colours back in Britan before heading over to America.
Detail of the fur backpacks came out OK and superb molding and sculpting made picking out the lace on the cocked hats quite enjoyable (if you're a partially autistic SOG).
Even spent some time going back over the figures to highlight buttonholes on the coats.
Really happy with the way these guys came out.
