A very nice rendition of a very nice set. It's a shame Revell didn't reissue these and the British infantry and artileery, I'd certainly buy a few more.

First of all these are wonderfull painted figures Chris! :thumbup:

But ...... you followed the back of the revell box to paint these figures and that is wrong! You painted them as Hanover troops. The Rifles have green trousers! ;-)

That one on the left isn't a soldier but someone who found some stuff and a drink! It made his day! :mrgreen:

It can be confusing indeed! :eh:

Just like any other set of troops at the time. ;-)

With the probability of anything that could be de-nailed included :P

Hi guys, thanks for good words and discussion :) And I didn't follow the Revell box art (i.e. aqua color Sea Green 48 recommended by them is wrong for these uniforms, I tested this paint). I painted the trousers in dark grey on very clear request of my friend. To be honest, I wanted to paint them green initially, but he wanted grey, so he got grey, that's all :D Also, you can see the jacket green is also brighter - wargaming scale effect.
