I seem to be painting a lot of Green recently.
Last year as part of a trade I got a bunch of Les Higgins figures including 30 Rifle types painted green. The 3rd Bttn of the 9th RIR were equipped with British Rifle uniforms in 1813 and wore them all the way through to Waterloo.
This weekend I finished the first 12 rank and file and got them based and ready for inspection.
I had originally planned on adding bayonets but in the end left the figures alone.
The next 9 rankers are 50% done and the command will be provided by a Hinton Hunt officer and drummer in standard uniforms. This will add contrast to the unit. The standard bearer will be a Les Higgins officer, the type pointing, which will be adjusted to take a fizzy can flag.
I hope the get the unit finished by the end of March.
In other news today I took a short trip of just over a mile to Ilkley Moor for a breath of air and to stretch my legs. I got to practise some Social distancing.
