FIW Trading post part 3 and more

I finally completed the basing for the trading post, my usual mixture of sand covered in an Oak finish varnish with clumps of static grass added. I also decided to paint the floor black as it is noticeable when the roof is removed for figures.

Finished trading post

I also managed to obtain a good deal with a club member on some spare figures he had lying around. It gave me 32 figures or enough for 4 units for Muskets and Tomahawks. After a bit of sorting I put together 2 units of 8 British regulars, painted as the 60th Royal Americans. I chose these as there uniform had most of the lace removed as they were primarily recruited for fighting along the frontier. The unit has a mix of headgear, even a couple which may not be strictly legal but I don't care.

Next up are the first unit of French, they still need their bases finished off. They are from the Companies franches de la marine. Very resourceful fighters on the frontier.

Next up I have a second unit of french men as I await my order from AW miniatures. If anyone knows the make of these figures I would be much obliged.
