I've also picked up another scale. 40mm. A few years back I picked up a HUGE collection of excellent Sash and Saber AWI miniatures on ebay. Has to be close to 200 figures, mostly Continental and militia. I've seen them at conventions in the past and they really are incredible and accurate figures. Here are a few of the ones I've completed.
I remember all those years ago when I left, I said I needed the new Perry Tarletons Legion figures. Well,I have since gotten them, and they are amazing figures. I've also done the foot component using Perry British in slouch hats and short green jackets. Nobody knows EXACTLY what they wore,so I kind of winged it based on other units. Funny. I normally despise painting horses,yet I have more mounted troops than I ever had! And I have quite a few more to paint up in the future as well.
After a hiatus of, what seems like forever,I've decided to get back at it again. 12 years since my last post. Wow! So much has changed since then. I kinda got off track and back to one of my other hobbies, armor modeling. Been working on 1/35 tanks the last few years and have built quite the collection. Recently I've been having airbrush issues,and paint issue,and then the airbrush just went and broke! Soooo, I can't paint my armor without so, I decided to dive back into my AWI project with thanks to a good friend of mine who's taken the AWI plunge full on! Which means, I'm fully motivated again to continue and finish my Southern Campaign army, AND get going on my other AWI project, Burgoynes army! Here are some I've been working on recently. I've completed all the regular British line regts : 9th, 20th,21st,24th, and 62nd foot. I won't be doing the 53rd or 47th,as they took no real part in the fighting. I'm currently working on Frasers Marksmen, and the light and Grenadier Bns. All are Perry figures.
