Well I have enough now for 2 battalions with more on the way.
First off I had decide on the regiments, and as Carl's painted minis were all wearing stovepipes that would mean probably the only regiment still wearing stovepipe shakos after the peninsular war were the 28th Gloucesters, who were part of the 8th Brigade under the 5th Division of Lieutenant General Picton.
Now I had to shave off all the shako plates ready for the 28th's regimental badge along with their back badge (these are now on the to do list, probably gonna use little big man studio decals). Next up assemble and organise into companies, 8 line, 1 light and 1 Grenadier. The grenadiers backpacks were swapped out for some French back packs as these were favored by the Grenadiers after being removed from the fallen French in Egypt. As some of the poses already assembled were not sporting the shoulder wings, they had to be fashioned from milliput. And all the guys got retouched cuffs and collars with white piping.
Some of the original minis as they arrived, sporting their new cuffs, collars and shaved shakos.
The Grenadiers get their new back packs, still a lot of piping to be added here though.
As I now have all the available minis painted to base colour, I have another 10 companies with the same yellow cuffs and collars, these will be the 2 battalion 44th foot, part of the 9th Brigade under Picton's command and will be sporting their new Belgic style shako.
One of the 20 companies now assembled and painted to base colours only.
So now I am waiting for the next Allumwell Wagames Society Show - The West Midlands Military Show so that I can purchase the rest of the brigade along with the French.
