AWI Militia Advancing

American Militia - Fife & Drum Miniatures

I finished painting and basing an American militia regiment for the American Revolution, using only the "advancing" poses in the new Fife & Drum Miniatures range of figures. So I now have two regiments: one is comprised of firing line poses, and the other is comprised of advancing poses. It seemed like a good way of telling the two regiments apart.

Here is a view of both regiments, forming a brigade of 400 men at a 1:10 ratio of figures to men.

If you are interested in ordering some of these nice figures, then head on over to my Fife & Drum blog (see link on the left hand side of this page).

One other piece of news: today I ordered several scenic backdrops from PECO in the UK. Now I can finally say good-bye to the old blue towel that I have been using as a photo background. Good riddance to that. I am looking forward to its arrival, hopefully next week.


  1. Exquisite as always Jim,

  2. Superb figures and basing, inspiring as always.

    But to lose the blue towel... that is a tragedy!


  3. Very nicely painted!

    Can't wait to see some Continental or British line!

  4. Not the blue towel, Jim. You can't... This is political correctness gone mad

  5. I need to let you know that I have nominated you for the "Stylish Blogger Award"
