Those looks lovely, congrats!

I got the same figures from both kickstarters, but who knows when I'll get to them … lol.

Look like good sculpts, and good job painting. Did the British regulars have turnbacks in 1745?

Cheers guys, I cracked straight on with these as the whole unit was just 4 figures short of complete. Texaswalker yes generally the coats were turned back, however on campaign and particularly in winter or inclement weather theturnbacks were let down and the lapels fastened over. This is probably how the British regulars appeared in the French and Indian War and certainly in 1745 as the campaign was through Autumn and Winter.
