The first post of the year.... Yet More Haitians.
Happy New Year to one and all.
The pre-new year lull has been pretty productive with 2020 starting the same way as 2019 and yet more Haitians to enter the campaign. I was on the look out for more Irregular types to flesh out the slave armies and came across these from Perry Miniatures.
They come from their Cape Wars range and are Fingoes, allies of the British, dressed in long shirts and bush hats each equipped with muskets and packs.
The vision is to use them as a link between the main line infantry and slave forces. A number of them come with tall feathers which I snipped off, I also painted the plumes with a tricolour to give them that revolutionary feel.
A comparison shot of the various ranges press ganged into the Haitian wars.

Next up something a little different with some fantasy items for the revisiting of the Elizabethan Zombie Wars.
