War of 1812 - "The British are Coming!"

Amongst my latest acquisitions from Old Glory are enough of their 1814 Second Edition Brits to make up a couple of battalions in the Belgic Shako plus a few extras to encourage me to buy some more to make a third battalion!

As with my previous exposure to the Second Edition range - Napoleonic Austrians - these are beautiful figures and streets ahead of the standard OG Napoleonic Brits which, in my opinion, are their least pleasing sculpts.

Here are a couple of pics of one battalion ready fro undercoating

 All 18 figures - 6 flank coy, 7 centre coy, 1 drummer, 1 sergeant, 1 officer and 2 ensigns
A closer up view of the command figures plus a couple of files of the centre coy privates
