Continental Command Pictures

Pennsylvania regiment with skirmishers

I have some new pictures of the Fife & Drum Continentals that I painted over the past couple of weeks that I am posting today. The pictures show what the new command figures (officer marching, NCO, drummer and standard bearer) look like.

Close up view of the command group. The NCO is on the stand to the right of the flag stand, first figure on the left with musket in his right hand.

Some of the skirmishing figures depicted in both brown and the traditional blue uniforms.

I am currently working on a unit of the 3rd Pennsylvania Regiment, decked out in brown coats with white facings and buff trousers. I hope to have them done within a week from today, afterwhich their pix will be posted on this blog.

The next items in the design queue will be British line infantry and British grenadiers in bearskins. These will probably roll off the production line in January 2012.
