Victrix British - KGL LI and 71st Highland LI

These are two small units of skirmishers which I hope to use as infantry support, along with Rifles and Voltigeurs (also in small units), in a mainly cavalry Black Powder game.
KGL LI on the left and 71st Highland LI on the right. I quite like the look of buff colored straps and belts - as on the 71st.
The majority of my other British infantry are in stovepipe shakos - but I rather like the later Belgic shako too. Particularly the cords and side plume.
Painting British are a bit simpler overall than French. The latter having a lot of piping and lapel work. However, painting French elite fringed epauplettes are much easier than painting British wings.


Before starting on the Perry cavalry, I may work on some leftover Victrix Middle Guard for a small unit of skirmishing Chasseurs a pied. Thanks again for dropping by and wishing you all a great December!
