4th Pennsylvania Continentals - Finished

4th Pennsylvania Regiment - Fife & Drum Miniatures
I finished the basing on the 4th Pennsylvania Regiment this evening so that you can see how it looks with the tufts and static grass on the stands. I have the feeling that this is going to be one of my favorite wargame units in my AWI Continental army of 1777.

I also collected enough Continentals in marching poses to create a new regiment of fellows in hunting shirts that are in marching poses. I added some of the Continental officers and command figures wearing uniform coats, rather than hunting shirts, for some added variety. The 30-figure regiment will have about 20 men wearing hunting shirts while the rest will wear a uniform coat that is brown with red facings.

I have much work ahead of me to get my AWI armies ready for this year's 2013 Seven Years War Association convention in South Bend on April 5 and 6, 2013.

Awesome. Great job on the hunting shirts. What sort of sealant do you use, if any? Even with mattes I still get a sheen.

Wow!! They look great. Super impressive regiment. I'm still up in the ait about my 2013 project but this is very inspirational. Well done.

As usual, you've done superlative work. I like the off-white/grey look you've achieved with the hunting shirts; what paints did you use for it?

I use Dull Kote finish to get a flat figure finish on my minis.

For the hunting shirts, I used a bottle of craft paints from Michaels that was a medium grey, then used a regular grey as the highlight color.

For the fringe, i painted it the darkest grey that I had and then painted small dashes or hash marks to give the impression of fringe.

Your figures look very nice. Your painting is also beautiful.
