I'm on a bit of a roll with 1/72 figures so I'm going to keep this going as long as I can. Today I pushed some more 1/72 "British" troops through the painting process.
First up are as bunch that I'm going to term Upper Canadian militia. These are extra Imex Alamo troops I had. This unit (from what I can tell) was issued with red jackets but uniforms were pretty dodgy their first year. So red jackets with yellow trim but some are cut short and there is a lot of variety in head gear and pants.
The second group are loosely painted as Lower Canadian militia--something of coureur des bois meets bon homme. I think they would do for almost any militia unit.
This last group I painted up to look (roughly) like Caldwell's rangers, with green coats and black trim with grey pants. I'd field these as irregulars. Again not a perfect uniform match, but definitive source material is a bit tricky to find on some of these units.
Up next: Some British cavalry/dragoons are drying. Then onto some superheroes. And then back to some more 1/72 British line troops and perhaps a camp. Somewhere in there I'll ben playing some For Honour and Glory with Bruce.
