Painted Continentals in Hunting Shirts Samples

New Continentals in hunting shirt - firing line poses. Click pix to enlarge.

Here are some pictures of the new Fife & Drum Continentals in hunting shirt that I have been working on over the weekend. I still have the standard bearer and drummer to do for the Continentals, plus the British amusette and crew to paint.

The picture above gives you a good idea of how the firing line will look when all of the figures are put together. I find that the mounted offier and the foot officer (both looking off into the horizon) make for a nice command stand vignette.

The marching figures, shown below, can be mixed in with a regiment of Continentals wearing uniform coats for greater variety, or they look nifty in a discrete regiment of all hunting shirts.

Mounted command and foot officer plus three marching poses.

Two firing variants and one "knock em dead" casualty.

I really like the animation that Richard Ansell put into the casualty figure. And if you look at the picture below, zero in on the fellow in the blue hunting shirt and look at his shin on the left side, his sock is falling down. That's a nice little touch.

The second rank of the firing line, plus on front rank.
