I have really got into doing some extra stuff that make wargames more fun recently – terrain, vignettes, command and casualty bases. To that end I have just completed some more. These are all Perry Miniatures. I got hold of their British Infantry Casualties (Code BH55) and Dutch/Belgian Cavalry Casualties (Code DB42) sets. Once again I am using the excellent Warbases 40mm casualty bases I acquired a month or so ago.
The British set contains six figures, including one vignette piece. First off a rifleman.
Flank Company or Light Infantryman (top) and Centre Company (bottom) bases.
A dead Highlander. I was quite pleased how the kilt came out on this guy. I have two regiments of Scots to paint and the kilts were putting me off. Now to see how I manage 24 at a time.
An infantryman taking a shot – a pose somewhat reminiscent of the famous photo by Robert Capa (staged or not)
Finally a vignette base showing a soldier helping a wounded officer.
The Dutch/Belgian cavalry casualties are not being used as is, but paint converted to be French cavalry casualties. First off a French Chasseur.
A Dutch Carabineer doing duty as a French Line Lancer Elite Co casualty.
This guy is now a casualty for my French Hussar regiment.
The next two have not been based yet as I wanted to mount them on larger versions of the bases. Warbases are making them especially for me but they have not arrived as yet. A Dutch/Belgian light cavalryman doing duty as a fallen French Chasseur and another Carabineer being a French Dragoon.
