Brother Against Brother Figures

Here are the other figures that I had painted in Sri Lanka. I have mounted these figures individually and in units of 10 figures to be used with the rules set "Brother Against Brother". I think the figures came out very well. There are both US and British/Canadian units in these photos as indicated below.

Here are the British/Canadian forces. The units include British Line, West Indies, Royal Marines, Voltigeurs Canadiens, and Glengarry Light Infantry.

Here are some close ups of the British/Canadiens:

Here are the Americans which include mounted and dismounted Kentucky Volunteers, Regular Infantry, and the 1st and 4th Rifles.

And some close-ups of those units as well:

The First Photos of New Figures

As promised, here are a couple of photos of the figures that I had painted in Sri Lanka. These figures are mounted on temporary stands and I have photographed them before the stands were complete because I wanted to get something on line. These figures came out really nice and I think that they will look great once they are mounted on the permanent stands that I have ordered for them.

This first photo is of the American commanders I had painted in this order. These are from the Knuckleduster War of 1812 Range of figures. These are painted to Showcase standards and I think they are very well done.

This next photo is of the American Rifle Regiment in green uniforms. These figures are painted to Collector standards which is one level below Showcase standards. I think these figures are painted to a perfectly acceptable standard for the wargames table.

The Figures Have Arrived!

The figures I had painted overseas arrived today! I haven't unpacked all of them yet, however, the figures I have unpacked are VERY nice! These figures will be mounted each on their own stand. The units in the Brother Against Brother (BAB) are usually about ten figures with one of the figures being an NCO or officer. I think this level of combat is going to be just right for smaller battles such as Sackett's Harbor or Beaver Dams. It will be fun to use the units in different and maybe make up a scenario of my own based in some way on one of these historical scenarios. I will have photos of these new troops up as soon as I get a chance.
