Does this work? Views sought please. I had a few unused painted AWI British gathering dust, no sale on ebay. So, I faffed about a bit with the paint brush to try and turn them into something that could pass muster as SYW. Has this worked? I sought Lemans views after one figure and we thought it looked promising. Here is first view of a whole unit. The only proper SYW figure, and the only one painted from scratch for the unit is the mitre capped drummer as the AWI drummer was in bearskin. Though I have since found a pic purporting to be of a SYW drummer in a bearskin. I know the uniform is a little different, and no back pack-though again I gather some SYW units in Canada did use them. I have based them on the 1/72 frontage as it means I can game in less space and I rather like the close order look—shoulder to shoulder, bolder and bolder, and all that. Is this a runner?

And some opposition..... these were unpainted lead yesterday. Am surprised how quick they've turned out. Crusader Mins. These are big figures. I thought Front Rank were big but these put em in the shade! No flags or basing yet.
