The Queens Rangers

    Here are some pictures of my Queens Rangers figures.These very nice figures are from the Perry Brothers of Great Britain.In my opinion,THE best 28mm wargames figures available today.Perfectly proportioned and historically accurate,and most of all,a pleasure to paint!

    I'm trying to build my armies composed of nothing but Perry figures.The only non-Perry figures are made by Wargames Foundry,of which the Perrys used to work for.Fine figures,but not as nice as Perry's.In a future post,I will examine the differences of all the various figures I have painted,from Old Glory,to Foundry to finally Perry.

The beginning..

This is my first attempt to chronicle my trials and tribulations of creating a wargames army.I am in the process of creating one major,and a couple minor 28mm AWI wargames armies.The first,and largest is Cornwallis' British Southern Army of 1780-1781.The next will be Clintons expedition up the Hudson in support of Burgoynes Army in Oct. of 1777.I chose that because I live near the site of its only major engagements,the attacks on Forts Clinton and Montgomery.

Next up will be Burgoynes German allies consisting of troops from Brunswick and Hesse-Hanau.This is just a small overview of what I will be doing.I will be posting pictures and descriptions of my current work,and progressas I go along.I have the bulk of The British Southern Army finished,all thats needed are some British Legion Dragoons and some Loyalist troops.

Well,off I go!!
