After my last post, I wanted to show an even larger grouping of figures. This is now 4 of my units at 72 men apiece, roughly 300. This is a fairly average size for a unit in the field during the Saratoga Campaign.

…and from another angle…
Quite nice to look at in my opinion. I have twice this amount painted up in my Patriot forces alone, and could field around 600 Patriots and 600 British/German troops. I like to think that if I had someone painting an opposing force I could play Hubbardton, Cowpens, or Eutaw Springs at 1:1 very easily. I would like to go for something like this eventually. But for now, I’m on my own and I’d just like to get a decent size battle on the field.
