Britannians - Continuing the Work

I've done a little more work on the Dixon figures, getting the lace painted on the first 12-figure division, including the drummer.

The drummers were the most intense to paint since each regiment's drummers seem to have worn a different amount of lace.  I had to guess on this regiment (the 5th Foot) since I didn't have a picture of its drummer.  Here you can see a drummer both before (right) and after (left) the application of the lace, plain white in this regiment.  I haven't decided if I want to try to do a replication of the regimental shield (St George killing the dragon) on the front of the drum.

The hatmen of the center companies were a little easier than the drummers although nine of them more than made up for the single drummer.  Again, a before (right) and after (left) picture.  The belting and muskets haven't been done yet.

Finally a picture of the two officers and two drummers in the first two 12-figure divisions.

More anon.
