1st US Infantry Division, 1812 part II
Today I'd like to show the whole of the American army from 1812 that I've painted so far, including some figures I haven't photographed yet. The officer leads his men from horseback while the NCOs keep the troops in line.
Since I've been working on my friend David's American army in small batches, I have not even seen all of them together myself yet. He has kindly assembled the men and taken some shots for me. I am liking how the bases rank up for a good unified look. When I get to the riflemen, they'll have a variation on this basing technique with a little more undergrowth and rocks to give an impression of skirmishing over rough ground.
It is a lot of fun to see the whole regiment arrayed out like this, and I can't wait to face it on the tabletop!
