Default American War of Independence British (from Wargames Factory)

Heyhey,

for my in-depth review of Wargames Factory's latest release - AWI British Infantry - I painted up a whole box worth of figures:

28th of Foots(Gloucestershire) line infantry plus sergeant:





28th of Foot (Gloucestershire) light infantry plus officer:


4th of Foot (King's Own) Grenadiers:




...and all of them together:


Hope you like them! Here's the Review of the whole box: Review: AWI British by Wargames Factory

Stunning work as always but this stuff especially. The prospect of painting red and white that close together makes my brain hurt. Great job!

Lovely work as ever, Sig!



Incidentally, the 4th Foot is the unit our society will be portraying at Waterloo next year

More stunning work. Wargames Factory have really stepped up their game with recent releases. Did you paint up their militia as well? I am eventually going to pick up a box along with the woodland Indians for Muskets and Tomahawks.

Many thanks, guys!
@Jacobite : Thank you, it's not that much of a problem once you work out a recipe.
@Tawa : Ooh, where's your reenactment going to take place?
@Khorne's Fist : Cheers. Haven't painted the militia, mostly because I think it hasn't been released yet. In fact they're releasing them tomorrow if I remember correctly. Those woodland indians are a really interesting one. I'll hold back on deciding what I think of them until I've seen the poses on them. All in all I think WGF originally announced four(!) boxes for AWI and yesterday they wrote that they'd do two more even which is just a mind-boggling amount.

On the actual battlefield at Waterloo
Sadly, I can't afford to shell out a small fortune for Napoleonic kit for one event. Even such a big one as the 200th anniversary....
