The ever helpful Brendan Morrissey suggested I take a closer look at the way the right arms of my Continentals are placed. In several cases they were in unison with their right legs and created what he called the 'tick tock' effect. I have to say I wasn't totally happy with the way these figures looked and of course that's the reason why. So, armed with a sharp scalpel I set about carrying out a little plastic surgery. I didn't correct every figure, just the worst offenders and I'm much happier with these now.
So here's how they were before:
Meanwhile I'm very happy with the riflemen. These are Perry metals and are a joy to paint. The muted colours are quite a contrast to the Continentals and British regulars. Not quite finished yet, but nearly there.
