War of 1812 - Second Unit of Canadian Voltiguers - Completed
Here is the second unit of the Old Glory Canadian Voltiguers - augmented by one element of Knuckleduster figures. Unfortunately, unlike the British Royal Marines, the Knuckleduster sculpt is significantly different from the OG one - the headdress in particular - the OG one looks like some kind of bearskin with a peak, whilst the Knuckleduster one looks more like a stovepipe shake with some fur over it - I don't know which is more accurate and I don't really care that much - its just a bugger they look so different!
Anyway, once they are on the table and people are looking at them form 3 feet away, they probably wont notice, so its not a big issue! Hopefully the Knuckleduster Maryland infantry and Glengarry Light infantry I have ordered to top up the OG units will be a better match!
As mentioned, I painted this unit slightly differently from the first one - with standard grey trousers rather than the pale blue I did on the first one. For some reason, I seemed to be one figure short in this unit too, but I solved that by just making the command element consist of only the officer and musician figures.
One last unit of Royal Marines to do and then I will be hanging out for the next Old Glory package to arrive!
