It has been a bit of trying week. A significant storm hit us on Tuesday night taking out electricity twice in three days (limiting painting time as a result), causing some minor damage to my roof, but major disruption to my days trying to get a reliable tradesman to come and fix it before a fresh storm hit us last night. But it is all resolved now and the painting schedule is back on track with the completion of the 13th Regiment of Foot.
With a history dating back to 1685, this regiment served in the first Jacobite uprisings in Scotland, Ireland, the War of Spanish Succession, the Anglo-Spanish War, the War of Austrian Succession, the “Forty-Five”, in the Carribean during the American Revolution and the early stages of the French Revolution, before being sent to Egypt in 1801, where it served first in Craddock's Brigade then later in Doyle's Brigade.
Again I have done this unit is round hats.
This is the ninth infantry unit of this British in Egypt collection and is the last of the infantry units in this batch of figures. Another six units will be ordered towards the end of this month to complete the infantry contingent.
