Command for Hastings' Regiment

These are the last few figures that I had to paint for this round of Geoff's figures. Command for Hastings' Regiment.

The button colour was silver/pewter, so I figured lace would be white for most of those that had it, but Officers bought their own tailored clothes, so they would have had gold lace I think. For the same reason the officers have a richer red coat than the rank and file. Some of the officers have buff leather gloves and some have crimson gloves. The drummers probably had reversed coat colours, but I had painted them before I thought about it. Geoff is OK with the red coats, so that is all that matters.
OK, mission accomplished - time for bed.
