My latest vignette depicts veteran Continental infantrymen during the later part of the American Revolution. Two of the soldiers wear the popular and
practical "hunting" shirt. Their weapons & gear is a variety of foreign import and American made. The muskets, for example, are the model 1766, French Charleville. By the close of the war, most soldiers in the Continental Army were armed with this weapon. The central figure carries a tin cartridge canister. These were issued to overcome a shortage of leather boxes.
The officer, trying to retain a more military appearance, wears a uniform coat which was made up at his expense.
The figures were sculpted with Aves. Heads are from the 1/32 scale Hornet line. The muskets are Shenandoah conversions.
A big thanks goes to Gary Dombrowski for his help with uniform and gear information.
