54mm British Regulars

Over the holidays I completed my first unit of British regulars. These are 54mm troops from All the King's Men. Overall, nice models.

I debated for quite awhile whether to seal the vest and trousers and cross belts before washing. This would preserve the "whiteness" of the clothing a bit better than washing directly over the paint (which then stains).

In the end, I decided against sealing first. I may try this with the second unit of regulars I have primed to add to the diversity. These fellows look rather well travelled in their stained outfits. I set aside the officer and standard bearer for later work.

Up next: Club night is Tuesday and I have a game of CCA ready to play. I also primed a bunch of woodland Indians that I will start painting on this week. Then maybe onto some 54mm grenadiers.

Hardened looking troops there, suitably campaign worn.

Thanks. The next of regulars will be a bit fresher looking!

They look fine - as mentioned above - they have the campaign look.
