As I mentioned in the previous post I finished up some moulds of the first batch of 1812 infantry and got casting them last night. Unfortunately all of the British regulars were miscast – the one, below, was the least messed up so I primed and painted him anyway just to see what he’d look like. (I’ve sorted out the casting issue and should be cranking more of these out shortly…). Before I get to basing and presenting entire units I’m going to have to make a flank company figure, an ensign, and an officer… and maybe a drummer…?

War or 1812 British Infantryman (41st Regiment of Foot) - modeled, moulded, cast and painted by yours truly…
…and the backside…
Well, obviously, I ain't no Perry Brother... but when there's a hundreds of them on the table in dense formation... who's going to notice?!
The militiamen I have didn’t turn out quite as bad – I should have a stand or two of those painted up shortly (of course they will be posted over at Analogue Hobbies first as part of the 2nd Annual Winter Painting Challenge…
Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:
I have some more Great War Jocks on the workbench and ready for painting… but they may be eclipsed by these War or 1812 figures….
As mentioned I also have some sculpting to do (flank company figure, ensign, officer, drummer, etc…)?
Hey, I just realized it’s five years ago today that I started this blog… This is the 811th post.
