6mm Baccus British Napoleonic Infantry

I continue to work away at my sons Napoleonic British, another three battalions that brings him up to a staggering five battalions. However Lee gave him three battalions of painted Adler line and one more rifle battalion so once I have these painted up he will be close to a respectable starting force. This means I will need to get a few more cavalry units done as well as his command.

The Baccus British Infantry are very tidy castings and the detail is very clear. Both these factors really helps get them painted up quickly.

Here is the 1st Battalion of the 9th East Norfolk Regiment, yellow facings and regimental colour. I have started painting from the low regimental numbers but in future will have to try and mix it up a bit or he will just have regiments in a strict number sequence. I will have to do the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire regiments though.

The 10th North Lincolnshire's 1st Battalion is almost a carbon copy also with the yellow for facings and standard. I have the skirmish screen set up a little different and the flags being blown behind so at least they have a few points of difference.

Last up is you guessed it the 11th North Devonshire Regiments 1st Battalion with it's rather snazzy green colours and facings.

Not that I think The Boy will be buying any more 6mm at Triples as he has a good stock of figures for me to paint up but he will be buying into a new period and scale, more on that in a future post.

    1. Thanks Peter, these came out nice and sharp


  2. Nice work, Ian. As usual, I especially like the basing, it really shows your brushwork to advantage.

    1. Yes the basing is so important on these little guys.
