War of 1812 British

With my evening gaming plans scuttled, I decided to finish off some figures. These are HaT Peninsular British Napoleonic figures. It is a nice box of 92 figures (half will go to Dave), all in useful gaming poses.

I painted these bases in a vaguely Glengarry Light Infantry colour scheme. The greened turned out a bit darker than I thought.

I also have a second lot drying which is in red jackets with yellow cuffs. These include a couple of bases of generals for the "mobile general" optional rule.

Up next: Some more War of 1812 and then back to 28mm figures. I have a bunch of vikings primed and ready to paint. I also have some 28mm medieval knights on foot to fiddle about with--nice poses from Reaper which vaguely match the GW Bretonnian mounted knights I am using.

  1. What game are you planning on running using the 1812 stuff?

  2. DBHx will be the rules. Thinking about doing various 1812 battles in 2012, 1813 in 2013, etc.

  3. They look nice. Have you considered using some variant of Neil Thomas' stuff?

  4. No, haven't read Neil Thomas's rules. I was also considering For honour and glory by Worthington Games: Basically Command and Colours except with DBA style activation pips.
