They are to be yet another unit in my growing War of 1812 collection. Sailors participated in land actions at Fort Erie on the Niagara and the battles and actions along the Chesapeake Bay and other raids along the American seaboard.
|most of the poses have firearms|
These are pictured on Brigade Games' web store so no surprises when received. In very timely fashion I will add. I really like the models, well sculpted faces, natural cloth folds with even the seams are indicated! There is only three packs of 4 in each within the range, with additional 2 figure command pack, so large numbers of troops will have duplicates but thankfully not the 4x2 poses in a pack some other manufactures do (ugh) so there is a great range of poses. Most have the tophat, short jackets and pantaloons (trousers) fashionable for land actions rather than for on board actions.
|Again, it is directly out of the package. Note the seams shown on the jacket!|
|Would a one-armed sailor still be in the service? Nevertheless a nicely sculpted figure.|
