Having painted six of the 2:1 ratio (muskets to pikes) units I'm moving onto to a few 'pike heavy or 1:1 ratio units. These will retain the same 120mm frontage but consist of 12 pikes and 12 muskets plus the command base.
I fancied painting a unit wearing yellow coats and having referenced the list of coat colours in both armies on this blog to see if yellow was indeed a valid colour (Sir Marmaduke Rawdon's wear yellow coats in the Sealed Knot I recall), I set to. The coats are deep yellow over a shade colour of Japanese WW2 uniform, yep, the same as I use to highlight my horses. It's important when painting yellow uniforms not to end up with a bunch of bananas, so tried to keep it fairly muted and gave them lots of grey and brown breeches to break things up a little. Quite pleased with them overall but these will probably be my only yellow regiment. Next one will be another blue unit, same 1:1 ratio.
Peter Pig figures, just need a brush over to remove static grass!
