British Forces for Freeman’s Farm

Finally some new pictures.  While I havn’t been posting as I needed some time to assess the amount of time I was spending taking pictures and blogging versus the feedback, I have been painting like a madman.  Well, like a madman for me, I’m a very slow painter. I finished all of the forces that […]

Enoch Poor’s Brigade

I have been waiting a while for this.  So far I have been concentrating on getting pictures on the blog for Hubbardton as that was a manageable engagement to paint and create a scenario for.  I have been hard at work for quite some time now and am weeks away from finishing the troops needed […]

Here Come the New Yorkers

The 4th New Yorkers had some pretty distinctive uniforms and I imagine they are pretty well documented as they show up in most collections of plates.  They wore with uniforms with black caps, rather […]

The 2nd New Hampshire

After receiving my first new AWI troops from Baccus, I wanted an easy first unit, enter the 2nd New Hampshire Regiment. These guys are the bog standard patriot unit. Their appearance is well documented and their flags can still be photographed live. I really like the way they turned out and think the unit is […]
