I’ve been trying to finish off my AWI militia and riflemen.These are the ones I got as part of an order with Ronnie from Fife & Drum in America. Not too much is left to do prior to basing. The mdf bases were glued to felt yesterday afternoon and lay under a pile of heavy books to adhere them together. Hopefully over the coming days I will get some time to complete these.
I quite like the idea of returning to the K.F.C for the games. This was a small American county - Karl Frederick County populated by Tradgardland settlers and name after the duke of whence they came. The inspiration was the battle of Oriskany and Nicolas Herkimer.
The militia and riflemen will defend against a force of Hessians and Native Americans.
Rules to be used are by Jim Purky and here is a link to a useful tutorial on them-
Some very fine and versatile figures, perfect for Close Wars and other Backwoods / Swamp Fox skirmishes ...ReplyDelete
Thanks, will try close wars perhaps but they are based in sixes ( Hessians) so not ideal.Delete
They are very nice figures and looks like you have done a nice job on the paintwork - look forward to seeing them fully based!ReplyDelete
Alan Tradgardland & for the top reply too
The figures have turned out beautifully, Alan, and I really love the back story for your games.ReplyDelete
I’m pleased with them too. The back story is fun I think.Delete
Nice work on those F&D militia, they look the part, good back story too.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing these lads finished.ReplyDelete
Great looking figures. Looking forward to seeing them when done.ReplyDelete
In keeping with KFC Karl Frederick County, I trust that you have a Scandinavian figure called Finn GerLukin-Gud.ReplyDelete
Who knows , watch this space…😊Delete
I loved the games in the KFC! As an American, I can confirm they were truly great and culturally informed. Ha!ReplyDelete
I like a bit of fun In games, we can take ourselves and our games too seriously at times!ReplyDelete
