Victrix Foot Artillery

I decided to break up one of the limbers and make another gun out of wheels and bits. In order to crew 4 guns I had to press gang some perry british Infantry into service, the Gunner by the limber is one of them.
In this picture there is a 9lb and 6lb gun, the other 2 guns are nearing completion too.

Valiant - US 29th Infantry Division - rifle team

These are the hard plastic 20mm figures. These figures are all from the same spure, being a little larger they are a bit easier to paint and apply the detail. But the down side is they look like giants along side my Britannia figures.

Perry Miniatures American Civil War Union Infantry

These together with the Confederate troops these union boys were all from the same box. The make up of the set allows for some mix and matching, if I going to paint more I'll start off with four boxes and keep the shell jackets, and Frock coats separate and sort them by marching or firing/loading together in the same unit.

Perry Miniatures American Civil War Confederate Inf Ptd

Perry Mins Plastic ACW infantry, very nice figures and they paint up a treat however after painting a couple of boxes i'm still not sure if i fancy ACW.

Spares from the Victrix French Guards

These were left over from the Old guard victrix box set, i fancied some greatcoated skirmishers and with the help of some perry heads they came out looking great. The officer is for my artillery battery which came out looking ok apart from the claw like hand in the air it looks like a zoidberg hand, more to do with my painting than the sculpt i promise you!

79th Cameron Highlanders (Victrix)

I fancied taking on the harder tartan of the 79th and i wish I hadn't bothered! Much harder to replicate that the government tartan or the Gordon tartan, I didn't quite get it . . . Still very nice figures to paint. The more eagle eyed will notice that the arms are all (bar a few) Perry miniatures British arms. There is nothing wrong with the victrix arms but i was looking for a different look for this Highland regiment.

Dismounted Dragoons

The excellent Perry miniatures Dismounted Dragoons. I thought i'd convert two of the mounted dragoons to a command group, however although i've given the Captain the right helmet I've forgotten to take off the Strap for the Cartridge Box!
Added a greenstuff finger pointing.

Dutch Militia

A mis-mash of Perry and Victrix British (with 2 Great coated French old guard thrown in for good measure) The perry British has plenty of spare Stovepipe shakoes and it was nice to be able to use these. I have used a Dutch Line standard i had lying around but intend to change this to a Orange Militia standard when i get my next GMB flag order in.
