10mm British AWI 1st Guards

I took on a reasonably large painting commission last week. These are 10mm AWI figures from Pendraken (I think). The first unit I finished is the British 1st Guards Regiment for the Battle of Monmouth Courthouse.

These fellows were very nice figures. Only a tiny amount of flash to carve off the bottom of the bases and they took paint well. The usual approach with black primer, block painting and a wash. The owner will add flags when he receives them back.

These are the first 28 of 400 and some so I'm still getting my eye in. There are based on 20x20mm bases (which are tiny!).

Up next: I have three bases of mounted generals and a unit of light infantry with bases drying. I also have three more units primered and underway. It is also club night on Tuesday.

  1. Thanks. I was pretty happy with how these guys turned out. It always freaks me out to post pictures that you can zoom up to two or three times actual size--shows all manner of errors that you can't see in real life!

  3. I don't think the Guards had Colours. They (2 battalions) were assembled by levying 15 men from each company of Guards. Presumably the worst 15, but they were still Guardsmen. But the actual Guards units stayed home in Britain.
