My first Americans

The artillery figures of my miniatures for the Continental Army were the first to be completed. The set is from Dixon Miniatures, and I am quite content with their appearance and modelling. I only decided to give my officer a gorget and epaulettes.

The figures painted quite well. I clothed them in 1779 regulation uniforms, and enjoyed their campaign worn apparel. I could have put some dirt on their uniforms, though. But I only decided to darken their white clothes.

The two-horse-limber will follow later. The reigns and traces for the leading horse are a bit of a problem for my old hands.
