AWI British Legion

After making some good progress on my American forces, I decided to make a start on some Loyalists. The units I have chosen are the British legion and Emmericks Chasseur.  This is because they both contain both foot and mounted units.

First up is the foot companies for the British Legion. I used the figures from the Perry plastic Brits. There isn't much data available for these guys as they are somewhat overshadowed by their mounted arm. There are discrepancies with the head gear, some stating that they wore a light infantry hat. I went with a floppy hat as it fits the southern theatre better.

Next up is a completed British office to lead my loyalists. He is in the cut down coat and is from the Perry metal range.

I have also completed another Continental regiment, but I'm awaiting an order from Warbases to restock on bases. I have also put in a small order with Perry miniatures for some mounted militia. 4 of these will be used as a small unit of loyalists and the other 2 will eventually be used as the start of some American militia cavalry.
