I have been anticipating these guys for a long time. This is the first new release from The Galloping Major since I started painting his figures, so they set back my complete figures percetages creating a desire to get some paint on them quickly. It still took me a little while as I was waiting to see what others have done with them. So far, the only painted example is by the Major himself on his site. With that inspiration and the photo on the back of the The Annotated and Illustrated Journals of Major Robert Rogers as my guide, I went for it.
The following are the results, I hope I have done the figure justice as it’s fantastic. It’s my first attempt at 28mm 18th Century lace really. It’s a time consuming, but not un-enjoyable process. I had an amazing amount of fun painting the tri-corn on the other Ranger officer, and it makes me look even more forward to the eminent releases from the galloping major. We’ve already seen the Provincial officer, I’m hoping for other regular types in the very near future.
