Fort McHenry Project: US Regular troops

US Regular troops casting big shade over the British

Been working hard to bring the Fort McHenry National Park commission to a close. Definitely gaining steam, and only have one more unit, some officers and a squadron of ships to go!


These 80mm wooden soldiers represent the US regular troops that helped defend Fort McHenry during it's bombardment and siege in 1812.
 



These guys were a bit of work, but a joy to see them finished. I am still trying to figure out why I thought that painting non metallic metallic was a good choice :)
 Next up are 24 of the volunteer regiments that fought along side the regulars. I've actually got them about half done on the painting table, and have to say adding red is a nice break from all the blue.
