This week I didn’t have as much time to paint as I’m used to since I’m back to teaching. Still, I managed to get these Black Powder – French and Indian War – British Regular Infantry from Warlord Games. I picked these up a long while ago for using with my pirate figures. I’m quite pleased with how they turned out. It’s been a while since I painted anything with quite such bright colours and tiny fiddly bits. But that’s British red-coat uniforms for you.
I’m happy with the base design I came up with as well. The individual miniatures are based on steel washers and the base has inserts set into it for each miniature with a rare-earth magnet inside to hold them in place. So when they’re in their firing line, they’re held nicely in place and casualties can be removed individually from the base.
