Having just had our first Carlist War game - for which I need to add one British unit to complete my brigade - AND also the fact that we are working towards a collection of WW1 in E Africa for our annual wargaming pilgrimage to Tarawera - I have now been distracted onto another theme - the War of 1812 between the US and Britain!
I have purchased two packs of six figures each from Knuckleduster, to assess their quality and also because I will probably combine them with the Old Glory figures for the same period
I painted the six Canadian Voltiguers from start to finish last night - mind you, if you have used grey and black paint, they are 80% complete, so they were quite simple to do!
Results are below - I am reasonably happy with them. Tonight, I have six Royal Marines to do - there were three battalions of marines engaged in the war, so I am looking to do a few of these guys.
Knuckleduster also do some cool figures that OG don't, particularly the Canadian militia cavalry in exotic headgear such as fur crested round hats!
I also like the idea of these figures in winter uniform.....
