Mounted British Officers

It's a bit hard to have an army without some proper leaders so I dug into my lead pile and painted up some Perry AWI British Officers to lead the king's forces. The poses of the figures are very nice and give a real feel to the period. The gentlemen with the sword raised will act as the army general until I have some time to paint up a proper high command and the others will be brigade commanders. I painted them in the traditional British uniform of red, blue and white. A note on the red in that I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it. I do like it.... but then again I'm rarely if ever completely satisfied with any reds I do as it's either too dark or too light or too pinkish or too much orange or something frigg'in too much of. I'll try a different tone with something else and see which one I prefer more and change this if I have too.

I now happily have enough figures to play small games with and even have more plans for AWI soon. but I'm going to take a small break from it and paint some other things I've been meaning to do, so until then keep your brushes going.

Thanks for viewing!:-)
