Hastings regiment

These boys seem to have taken a lot longer to paint than I thought they would - and they still aren't finished. This is the rank and file for Hastings Regiment of the English army.




A search online revealed that these guys didn't have any hat lace, but did have yellow hat bands. The picture also had them with yellow bows on their shoes, but I couldn't bring myself to do that to them.
I still have 9 figures of this regiment left, mostly command. These are sitting on the painting table now and should be done by the end of the week.

  1. Very nice indeed Natholeon. You've managed to get some nice expressions of their faces, and well done on all the button- they'd have driven me completely bonkers!! Great stuff and looking forward to seeing the command mins :-)
