Hello all, it's been quite a while but I am starting to collect figures for the Flanders campaign and the Battle of Tourcoing. Any ideas of what to use for British Infantry? I was looking at HAT Spanish 8302 (breeches and gaiters
coats are too short
) or HAT Saxons 8187 (good coats
but wearing trousers
Any ideas for other troops of the period would be welcome too. I'm using the Italeri Austrians, which are ok, but the Kasketts are too big
many thanks in advance
From what I have seen, for 1/72nd AWI might be a reasonable match - some of the illustrations show British infantry in the 1790s still with fall-down collars as well as some with stand up.
set gives you gaiters (that you can trim to the knee) and breeches and long coats and hats.
Light companies would probably have short coat tails, perhaps with a round hat, so perhaps the A Call to Arms
AWI figures could be adapted, though whether they mix well with the Accurate
I could not say.
I don't have either set, but they are probably where I would start looking if I were you.
