I have fallen behind a bit in my quest to blog every day up through Christmas, so I will try to catch up with the weekends events, briefly.
The first three stands of 8 British Guards have been completed and are now based. Pictures to follow, hopefully later this evening. The unit will eventually have 5 stands of 8 figures, for a total of 40 in the battalion. Then there will be a second battalion of the Guards, also at 40. So at 1:10 I will have 800 British Guards in my army.
As an experiment, I painted one Guard ranker in a green coat with white facings, kitted out as one of the Loyalist regiments fighting for Britain. Since very little is known about these regiments or their uniforms, I figured that I could get away with using the Guards casting as a Loyalist soldier. It looks pretty good to me.
