Great work !best regards Michael
Love these.I had been thinking about green jackets for all of these even though later in the war, many loyalist units wore red. The green makes them distinctive in the boardgame format.As always, amazing work. Perfect really.
That's what I was thinking, Glenn. Make them easily identifiable by color for purposes of the game. For the same reason, I was thinking of doing the US militia in various shades of brown and the Continentals in blue jackets.
I like it. Makes them easy to differentiate. Cheers!
Ooh, love the green jackets. Wonderful work as always. Dean
Hey Scot great pics and helps me do my Queens rangers I have a 32 figure regiment on the painting blocks, as far as Continentals go I know a couple of historians who mention that quite a few militia and even regimental continentals were in Brown coats of various shades throughout the ar as I recall you posted some pics of those units as well. Scott Holder did a thing in the Courier on the Southern campaign which listed regiment colors foe both sides of the Southern Campaign under Cornwallis
Nice work. LtCol Simcoe would be pleased. If you haven't had a chance to read his book or King's Ranger (Georgia/Florida Loyalists), do so! It will amaze even the most skeptical Whig of the professionalism and efficacy of the Loyalist Corps.
I just finished reading 'Redcoat' by Bernard Cornwell ( of Sharpe fame). A rollicking good read.
