Hessians in 28mm for Sharp Practice

So I have been periodically adding various AWI figures to the lead (and plastic) mountain since last year, but thanks to my jackdaw nature, not really getting anywhere with them. I finally knuckled down and tried to get at least a couple of 'squads' finished for Sharp Practice 2.

The figures themselves were part of a job lot bought second-hand for next to nothing at one of the Scottish shows last year, probably Edinburgh. I think they are 'Elite' figures, which looked pretty unprepossessing in the raw, but when painted I rather like them. They are from the Seven Years War range but can easily do double duty if you sort of squint a bit and ignore the Jager cartridge box being at the hip rather than belly.

So here they are, apologies for the lighting which has flattened the colours a bit:



I have quite a few other 'units' which are nearing completion, so with a bit of discipline, I should have a few more to post over the next week or so. What with the buildings that I have been working on, I should have a decent chunk of the forces I need to put on a game.
