More work on my Rebels and Patriots forces:


More details, and a shot of the reworked backs of the models can be found here:


And details of how I made the tall hats here:


I'm now trying to decide which will be the best plastics to use as a base for another Canadian unit, in non-regulation coats, Trimmed up Perry Austrians or Warlord British are looking like the best options, but should I look for other possibilities? The gaiterless trousers lean me toward the British, but its a lot more trimming elsewhere on the models. Any suggestions? (metal is out of the question)…

Very nice conversions….a lot of painstaking work, which is a testament to your skills. Thanks for the review of "Blue Stuff."

You have probably already considered the following; easy conversion of Perry plastic 95th Rifles to Glengary Light Infantry….change the Baker rifles for Brown Bess muskets. Although better than militia the GLI would make an unique addition to your Canadians.

Nicely done.

Thanks Iron Duke,, but I already have done a section of the GLI, but from the bulk equipped with muskets.
