At last, a start to my British Army for the American War of Independence. This is the 23rd of Foot (Royal Welch Fusiliers). My British order of battle will be based on the Guilford Courthouse campaign of 1781.
The figures are from the Perry's metal range. I must have purchased these about five years ago and they have sat patiently awaiting painting all this time. I managed to paint a couple of brigades of Continentals and Militia during my last AWI phase in about 2008. This was helped by recovery time post-surgery. Probably the best thing about undergoing surgery is the necessary recovery period of taking it easy afterwards and those four weeks saw two full battalions of Maryland Infantry completed!
Of course- changing to a new painting technique might end up being a longer process, but I'll have to see. Nothing ventured and all that!
