These figures were £2 a pop, and I'll take the short fur hats, thank you. SYW experts might wince, but I'm happy to compromise - after all, I'm from the generation of war gamers who.....

 

4th Grenadier Regiment. This unit still needs a flag.



This latest units has a couple of ringers in it. I have sawed off some tricorns and replaced them with miters. I have replaced an NCO standard bearer's flag staff with a musket. Ebay can only go so far in providing what you want, but with a little time and effort it can be just enough. If you look VERY closely - but, who the hell does.

No problem saving money. Why pay more when you can get what you want for less?

Hats off yo you sir! A great bargain and fantastic looking units.
