I bought a pack of plastic gems at the local 2-dollar shop and glued them on the Signifer's pole (ooh err... um, I think its called an aquila), then hand painted the details including the little 'H' 😆
... or what I did with the rest of our summer holidays - finishing the German regiments in my BP AWI collection. Yes, this portion of the collection is done. Complete. Finished, and take their place along side the other 7 units started in 2014 and based in 2016!
While there may be a command stand to come at some point, its nice to get something completed for this collection.
With a bit of time on my hands during holidays, I was able to finish off the 3rd commission from Spiro at Pants of War, some AWI French; destined for Black Powder.
The 20 year old figures from Italeri certainly suit the French Ordnance colours from 1779, and the Warflag flags just keep on giving - but the drummers got their 'toy drums' sliced off and replaced with Italeri American drums as per the previous unit.
Unfortunately it seems the officer got a blast of gunpowder in the face, as his detail is missing, but the colouring is just superb.
Will have to wait until January to pick up the last of the French from Spiro and in the meantime, I've prepped up the last three units of Germans for the collection.
