AWI Militia

After struggling with the last couple of Danish regiments for the GNW I decided to take a temporary step into a different period and scale. I've had these militia figures sitting in a box for over a year so decided to give them a quick paint up. I've deliberately left off the flags so that I can use them as either Rebel militia or non-uniformed tories.



I kept to a limited palette for these, plenty of browns and yellows. They are not the best work, but I needed to paint something different. The figures are mainly from Front Rank with a couple of Perry's mixed in.

I also decided to put together a couple of wagons from Warbases.  All battlefields need a bit of clutter and I rather like these.


I still need to paint up the baggage that goes with the engineers wagon. It will have to wait as I push on with the last few Danes.
