This week sees the the 22nd and 25th US Infantry Regiments march off the painting table.
These two regiments complete Scott's Brigade for my War of 1812 project. Below is the complete brigade, with Towson's battery.
They also complete the first phase of that project. I say first phase because although the original project plan was just this force, one brigade four infantry regiments, a gun and a command stand, I will expand this in time to encompass the rest of Jacob Brown's Division. This will see another two regiments of regulars, one of militia, some indians, three more guns and maybe a squadron of cavalry. But that will be late, maybe not until the middle of next year.
So the progress against the plan... The first two items, the Prussian Napoleonic expansion and Scott's American brigade are completed and about a week ahead of schedule.
The French In Egypt is now launched. In fact two items are complete. The first is the twin camel limber that I painted a couple of weeks ago is now finished and based.
Second is the first of three field guns planned for this collection.
