With all the new redcoats reinforcing the gaming table, the poor minutemen need a properly trained fighting force on thier side as well. To oppose the crown forces on tabletop, I've been preparing a group Old Glory continental infantry.
Rather than the more ubiquitous blue coat, I wanted a more unique force, and with family ties to Connecticut, I was inclined toward brown coated infantry from that state. (Of course on table they'll more often represent a more generic Continental Infantry when out of appropriate battles)
My initial test figure came out better than I'd expected, but in less than full daylight, his coat could be mistaken for a redcoat. To make sure the men stood out as distinct at a glance, but unwilling to go bluecoat, I instead worked on varying their smallclothes.
Here we can see them alongside their normal opponents, and the distincition between the two groups is tankfully readily-apparent. Also adding to the variation among the ranks, not all their hats get white tape trim, which adds a good unpolished look, and further visually separates them from their opposing figures.
