Here are some shots of my Virginia Militia at Cowpens and afterward. The VA Militia was thick with Ex-Continentals, including veteran officers, who were hard to come by.
I tried my hand at taking a couple of close ups. Not too bad.

A great-looking unit! I really like their flag.

The flag is home made. I saw the image on the 'net and fooled around with the Paint program to make it into a flag. I used magic markers to to put in some highlights and depth.

Well done. I like the basing on these.

Once again a well painted well based unit that deserves to appear on a wargame table. :-)

John, I love those Scottish hats on my OMM figures.
They just look so "frontier" to me.
