So next up will be some light infantry skirmishers and two groups of State line troops. I'm inclined to go with a brown jacket and red facing for those to add some variation but haven't made a final decision yet. I have time, they have just been based and need to be primed yet, so I'll give it more thought. I also have a few more leaders, a drummer and a standard bearer for the Continentals.
Talking of leaders I came across these nice MDF bases from Supreme Littleness Designs which I think will make great bases for my leaders and allow me to know which leader corresponds to which command chit. There is a 2mm MDF base with a sabot cut in it and then a piece of grey board to stick underneath, which means the base is not too thick but works as a sabot.
I haven't quite worked out how I'll mark the base, I'm thinking I will make miniature images of the command chits and stick them on and then flock the base around them. I shall experiment to see what works.
Meantime I've made a bunch of them.
My Perry metal Riflemen are also finished and I'm really happy with these, a wonderful set of figures, well sculpted and cast and full of character.
So we are getting very close to enough units to start playing Sharp Practice and my British light infantry will soon have some opponents.
