Two British Line Units

Here are a few quick snapshots of some newly sealed British Line units.  I learned a valuable lesson with these….don’t paint faces after having hurt your hand shoveling snow…

I was torn between repriming or just pushing ahead so I could work on the next unit.  Needless to say I’m not satisfied with the quality, but I wanted to offer up at least one update in the last 20+ days.  On to the pics.

Two units of line.  One with green facings and one with yellow facings.  These are the first 1/2 of the British Guard list.  I’m looking forward to a game on Tuesday where these guys may or may not see action with in my friend Chris’s force.  I’m hoping to be the attacker in that one using French guard!

The intention is to base this list along the lines of the first division at Fuentes de Onoro.  72 tartans are in progress and 2 more boxes of Perry French Dragoons are in the mail to me for a support choice.  I’m shooting for the end of may to be able to run a core and 2 cav. support choices.  What I need to find are a few of those wargamers that over indulged in Perry plastics and are looking to trade some of them away on the cheap…

    Very nice to see so many painted Brits!

    Which Rules system are you using them for?

    Happy Gaming,

    So, did they see action vs. your friend :). How did they (you) do!?

    Man oh man, that is a loaded question! 🙂

    One of these units ran garrison duty in a small town somewhere in eastern Spain and were, unfortunately, unable to hold the fleeing French to the eastern side of a small river (Coa perhaps…).

    For everyone else out there Chris (CnC) and I played a really fun scenario where the French needed to get at least 1/2 of their units off of the board before the end of the game. The Brits were attempting to stop them. This was a modified version of the scenario found in both WI and the Black Powder rules. French ended up getting 4 of the 5 required units off the board!

    Did you prefer to play Lasalle or Black Powder rules?

    Just curious as I cannot afford to buy both sets of rules at the moment.

      I haven’t played black powder yet, just read the rules. I also did some of the painting work for Lasalle and was on the play-test team. I could not possibly give you an unbiased answer. 🙂
