Last post this week is another lot of leftovers from AHPCV, in the form of three generals for my War of 1812 project. There are two British (the good guys) and one American (boo, hiss, Yankee go home). All are Perry's, from the British Napoleonic range.
I really like these three figs, good poses on the riders and fine looking horse flesh underneath. The one officer in the navy coat has been initially allocated to the staunch defenders of Upper Canada. However, uniform similarities and the top coat mean that he could end up leading our brutish southern neighbours bent on conquest rape and pillage.
Once again I used slightly different basing techniques. To suite the rough Canadian Shield I made the ground quite rocky, using a mix of ballast and Kitty litter. I then added tufts for weeds to suit my mood at the time.
