28th Foot (North Gloucestershire)

Very nice to have a little break after all those highlanders. I hate painting but love playing around with all the creative options the new 28mm plastics provide. Here are some casualty figs for the 28th Foot. They were a kind of reward to myself for finishing the Camerons.



I'm going to carry on with the whole of Kempt's Brigade - they'll all be in firing line, except for those companies of the 95th which were skirmishing down by the sandpit.


Oh and the light company will be out skirmishing.



I'll be posting more as they come along. At the moment it's such a joy to have no more tartan!

  1. Do you mind explaining how you did the casualties?

  2. Hi, the casualties are mostly Victrix bodies with various Victrix or Perry arms and heads attached. I find the running figures in each set are good for making different poses.

  3. A very nice regiment which I plan to paint myself when I finished the Black Watch. Did you consider to give them French backpacks? It's said that at least the grenadier company wore them as award for a victory they scored during the Peninsular campaign.
