Very British Civil War
|First Section of a company of the Liberty Bell Legion|
These figures are from Falcon (US) Miniatures' Boxer Rebellion line and are US Marine officers and enlisted. I've had these figures for a number of years. The impetus for this unit was a flag that Leics_Gamer posted on the Very British Civil War forum of the Liberty Volunteers from New York state. That was quickly morphed into the Liberty Bell Legion and, as they say, the rest is history (or alternate history, rather).

I only had enough figures to form 9-man sections instead of the 10 I wanted, so if any American readers of this post have some these Falcon Miniatures Boxer Rebellion American Marines in the advancing pose, please get in touch with me.
French and Indian War
The other figures that I am painting are some of Der Alte Fritz's incomparable Fife and Drum American Revolution militia. My war gaming buddy Lord Sterling picked these up for me at Historicon back in July. I finally began painting them. Although I'm not far along, they are looking rather good. I'll be using them for a colonial American unit fighting against the dastardly French deep in the backwoods of America.

I hope all my readers have a very nice Christmas holyday and a happy new year.
