This week has seen the completion of the final two battalions I am doing for the Peninsular War.
One battalion has red facings, the other blue, neither representing any particular regiment.
The second battalion is smaller, comprising of three stands instead of four, just because it is the way the packets of plastic figures worked out.
Also completed are two spare light dragoon figures for use as couriers. One has been done in the Tarleton helmet for the Peninsular and one in shako for the War of 1812.
The reference in the title to “almost” is made because the command for the 60th Rifles is yet to arrive (and won’t be ordered until late this month). In addition to that I do need a few command figures and I am quite keen on the rather nice Peninsular artillery sets that the Perrys have made - I do have six of the Victrix guns, but they are all of the later solid trail guns that are more suitable for the War of 1812, later Peninsular and the Hundred Days. Then there are the new limber and caission sets…(sigh)…
…but for now the lead/plastic pile is flattened.
