With the Woolshed well on the way to being wargame friendly once again, I thought I might do some posts on my War of 1812 Yanks. I painted these way back in about 2003 I think it was. I paint in a different style now but I still like these guys. A bit glossy, colours not quite right and not much shading – they are what they are. I do remember how proud I was of the freehand ‘US’ on canteens and backpacks. Nowadays you can get decals for that. Time marches on…..
These miniatures are Old Glory figures from their excellent War of 1812 range. There are some really nice models in this range. I have bags of them unpainted in my lead mountain. They are at the smaller end of 28mm but stand up well alongside newer ranges.
