I have now complted the first 8 British Marines from the American Revolution. These Perry Brothers plastic figures have been a lot of fun to paint so far, but it has definitely been a learning process.
My one real issue is one of my own lack of foresight. While gleefully putting these new models together, I got ahead of myself and forgot to check the fit of the unit, and, as a result, I have difficulty fitting them into two ranks they will most commonly be played, since some of the rear-rank figures' muskets are pointed just a bit too low. In the future, the whole 8 will be assembled together on their movement tray to ensure ranking.
The red line grows! The first small detachment is ready for deployment, and will be seeing action in a game soon, with a battle report to follow.
