AWI Black watch and Grenadiers

Hi guys

Finished some AWI 28mm Perry Black Watch and mixed Grenadiers on commission, Perry's are lovely figures as usual.


  1. Dan, those look absolutely fantastic. Just one thing - you wouldn't have a blue-coated drummer (assuming my monitor isn't playing games with the colours). Royal regiments wore blue facings and they didn't reverse the colours for their drummers per the 1768 warrant: "The coats of the drummers and fifers of all the royal regiments are to be red, faced and lappelled with blue, and laced with royal lace. The waistcoats, breeches, and lining of the coats, to be of the same colour as that which is ordered for their respective regiments." Cheers, Jon

  3. Not having a dig - they are fantastic, especially the tartan. There are some arcane aspects of lots of British kit, as I'm sure you know.

    1. No problem, just hate learning something after the fact.

  4. At least it's only the drummers. I painted a sixty figure highland battalion for the Sudan and got the tartan wrong on every single one!
