American 3lb Artillery

this is my first completed american artillery piece
it is a foundry piece and i have chosen to give it a 3lb gun barrel
i have painted them in a rather traditional manner and they have obviously benefitted from an efficient quartermaster as they have very dapper uniforms including gold braid around the brim of the tricorne. future gun crews will be in a much more rough and ready attire


Merry christmas to all

3rd New York Continental Infantry

this is my first AWI american unit and i have painted them as the 3rd New York continental infantry regt. i have painted them as a slightly mixed bag with some smart and some wearing the ubiquitous hunting shirt. i am quite please with how they have come out, even if i still need to get some more lovely flags from mr graeme black
next up will be an american 3pdr and the 4th New York in their rather snappy white uniforms with red facings
