Meredith's Regiment

I'm doing a BTLB test regiment. I've chosen Merediths 37th foot who wore yellow facings. See below for the first figure:

Ebor figures are the manufacturers. Very nice too.

I've checked GMB and Flags of War for Meredith's colours but cannot find them. Does anyone know of any sources?

Re: How I paint horses

Its been interesting to see how the oil wipe method has enjoyed a bit of a renaissance recently. I give the credit to Old Dawg (sp?) whose work features regularly on this and the Steve Dean site. His outstanding collection of models has shown it off to great effect. I worry for him in that he cannot...

Re: Painting White Napoleonic Austrian Uniforms

Its strange isn't it? There is no more surface area on an Austrian soldier than on any other Napoleonic infantry man but in spite of this they seem to take longer. In theory (my theory that is) it should be quicker because of so much of one colour meaning less mixing and prep time. I once did an Aus...

Re: Bulstrode's Regiment

Ah yes, but when you do them in 2mm what colour coats will Bulstrode's Regiment have?

Re: Bulstrode's Regiment

Well, you're absolutely right. It would no doubt have been a mixed bag of colours and sizes. I guess the limiting factor in terms of unit size would have been the ability of commanders to command and control. Big units (I'm guessing) would have been pretty unwieldy unless they come in a big block - ...

Re: Bulstrode's Regiment

Thanks for such a comprehensive list. The challenge is to make a table top army look a little more varied than just blue or red. I'm close to completing Brooke's regiment and have gone for not too much purple and a lot of greys and browns to reflect a non uniform, uniform.

Bulstrode's Regiment

Does anyone have any details on possible coat colours and standards for Col Henry Bulstrode's regiment? They fought as part of Skippon's Brigade at First Newbury.

Thanks

Which figures...?

This may seem like the height of laziness but my excuse is that I am currently in Helmand and am only able to do research through begging e mails like this. Anyway, that having been said, I am keen to add to my collection of Renegade and Bicorne ECW and am looking for a bit more variety. I am aware ...

Crimea - Where to start?

Apologies if this has been done before but I am considering having a go at getting a few units for the Crimea. It would be great for some advice on whose figures to use. I have sort of discounted Foundry and so the obvious choice appears to be Great War miniatures but they only have British and Russ...
