Perrys have multiple jacket and hat options. Can someone suggest appropriate Perry uniforms/poses for the southern campaigns 1780+ (Guilford CtH, etc) ?

Poses for ???
23rd Foot (I assume the Perry specific poses)
2/71st Highlanders (pants instead or kilts?)
33rd Foot
Guards Bn
Guards Converged Lt Inf
Guards Converged Gren Cpy

Also what poses for Loyalist Foot generally?

For various Rebel State Militias?

That's up to you. Most of my British are advancing with sloped bayonets. Easier with metal than plastic.

The infantry would generally be wearing overalls, including the 71st. A variety of cocked hats and broad brimmed hats, some turned up on one side. Poses are at your discretion.

My understanding is that the militia was largely come as you are,ie: civilian and hunting clothes like linen shirts. Some companies may have had the same color hunting shirts. Headgear would be round hats, tricornes, and stocking hats with the rare "coonskin."

"Can someone suggest appropriate Perry poses"

Poses could include: charge bayonets, firing, loading, advancing at the recover (there is no period painting showing British soldiers advancing into battle at the shoulder), slope arms (musket across the shoulders), and trail arms.

71st: no pants with kilts, needless to say.

What Loyalist foot? That covers a broad range from Tory militia to regular Loyalist battalions to special units such as the British Legion foot. Not much at GCH but they were quite active in the southern campaign. I think poses are going to depend on the type of Loyalist foot and also on which manufacturer you prefer.

I was unclear in my terminology. By "poses" I should have only said dress, hats, uniforms, etc.

Thanks for the advice. I actually did a bunch of research on this a long time ago and of course lost my notes.
