AWI re-basing project - finished! Part 1...

The re-basing project is done..!

117 bases in all - 21 were refurbishments, the rest were completely new...  started July 19th, ended last weekend...

So - here is the AWI Project as a whole - British and Allies top row left to right; Americans and Allies middle row left to right, American Indians bottom left; Artillery/transport/ancillaries bottom right...


99% of these are Minifigs (25mm scale); the exceptions are:
  • in the ancillaries box the canoes ("damn sightseers") are Parkfield,
  • the Welch Fusiliers are Front Rank, 
  • the Sussex Regiment are also Parkfield


Close up view of the Artillery/Transport/Ancillaries....  the spare guns are used for routed markers and when the guns are in limbered mode, same with the crews - there are enough limbers for all guns - the canoes have removable figures as I can use them to give transport for Ranger units - when they land the figure are swapped for standard bases...



Allied Indians...  four war bands...  these can fight for either side depending on scenario - not used them recently, so a scenario featuring them may have to be played soon!

Bear with - separate posts on British and American forces will follow..

  6. Great job Steve, I particularly like the canoes, tempted to get a couple for my FIW project.

    1. The Parkstone canoes are nice, and they fit with the smaller 25mm/Minifgs, but for the bigger 25's the Redoubt models are a bit awesome.. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=redoubt+miniatures+canoe&espv=2&biw=1280&bih=732&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiEy-T8nrnPAhWXF8AKHZv0AH4Q_AUIBygC

  7. great job on the rebasing like Lee above those canoes look great...Redoubt do have some good & unusual figures & models years ago I wanted a 'home service' victorian army for the 'battle of Dorking' & redoubt where the only manufacturers of home service helmeted figures...another stalled project!!!

    1. Fraxinus - they do superb American Indians as well, but the scale is huge..

  8. Very nicely done. I'm still working my way through my ACW rebasing but getting there. It must be very satisfying to finally complete them! Look forward to seeing the full parade!
