I have been busy painting the 1st, 2nd and 3rd New Hampshire regiments that served in Poor's Brigade at the Battle of Freeman's Farm, as part of the Saratoga Campaign.

Click the link to my blog, Der Alte Fritz Journal, to see many, many more pictures of these painted units.

Beautifully done. Fife & Drum are great figures.

We had a game with these chaps, and others, this weekend even though it was after Saratoga. They were quite weak but performed very well in a victory for the rebels.

Exceptionally well done, Jim, as usual.

The hardest part about gaming Freeman's farm (Loyalist) is figuring out the battlefield commanders for the Americans. Arnold is off board feeding in troops.

Nice looking figures and the extended bases, to protect the bayonets certainly, seems a good idea but illustrates why I prefer non-firing poses but to each their own.

Curious why you combined two militia units into one? Was it because of their combined numbers (didn't see in your post) or just a personal choice? Or not enough militia units painted up? No great matter, just curious.

Looks great. Thanks for sharing.

Yep. Apart from Morgan and Dearborn (who didn't even fight together, as Dearborn moved off to the left to engage Fraser), it's hard to tell if Poor and Learned even deployed as a cohesive unit rather than individual regiments showing up over time.
