Leslie's Brigade-Guilford Courthouse

Websters Brigade,Guilford Courthouse, March 1781

My first 2 units belonged to Lt. Col. Websters command at the battle of Guilford Courthouse on March15,1781. It was a small brigade,consisting of 2 regiments who fought together most of the war.The 23rd,Royal Welsh Fusiliers,and the 33rd Regt. Both of these units are made up entirely of Perry figures.The flags are by GMB,quite possibly,the best wargames flags available today,just hard to track down!

The 23rd is depicted in campaign dress.Short roundabout jackets,no facings,very appropriate for the Southern heat. They're also wearing floppy slouch hats with their regimental white feathers.The fusilier caps being put into storage being too expensive and inpractical for field usage in the Colonies.

I really like this unit,and it was a pleasure to paint.

The next unit is the 33rd regt. They're also Perry miniatures with GMB flags.This unit is wearing cut down regimental coats and slouch hats as well.The 33rd was a regular line regiment,and had no special distinctions as the 23rd has. As with the 23rd,they were also a joy to paint,which is the case with all the Perry miniatures.
