Acland’s Grenadier Battalion

Keeping with the theme of painting the Saratoga forces, starting with Hubbardton, next up for the British was the grenadiers from the Advanced Corps.  This unit was made up of all the grenadier companies from Burgoyne’s forces and a few other regiments.

I really enjoyed painting up this battalion.  I have found that units with any sort of variety are much more fun to paint than bog standard units.  For these guys, I looked at the facing colors of the units that donated their grenadiers to the battalion and found that about half were yellow/buff faced units.  So I painted half of each stand with yellow facings, and the other halfs have red, blue, and green facings.
