Here is the second, completely finished, AWI Unit to be presented.
Seth Warner's Green Mountain Boys, as they appeared at Bennington and saved the day.
Figures are a mixture, with plenty of Eureka and probably some Perry/Foundry. Painted by John Bryant.
The main Green flag is by Flag Dude. The other flag is from Flags of War.
I liked it and added it as a second flag, since I already had a second flagbearer.
I did all the ground work and that takes the most time. I've traveled around Upstate NY a lot and I'm pretty sure this is what the field it would look like at the time of the battle. I spent the better part of the day working on this
Hope it turned out OK.

I think they turned out great. I like how they are spread out more on the larger bases. My basing is for Maurice rules and so my unit looks a bit too crowded. I probably should have gone with less figures per base.

I also like the mix of figure poses and adding a few casualties here and there is a nice touch. I know you like to make mini dioramas with the stands and I think these do a great job of giving some animation to the unit.

Looks great with the mini diorama look. Thanks for sharing.

Dude, you really should game with your toys.

Dude, you really should game with your toys.

One day, somewhere, John, YOU can game with my toys.
One day.
Maybe the HOST.
Maybe here. You, the Major and Roger take a road trip.
But somewhere. I would really like that.

And look how cool these are with the casualties. That's why I have to have one in the next KMM release.
