Here is one of my favorite British units: The 95º Rifles.
I've watched the Sharpe's TV series, an adaptation of the novels that tell the story of a corporal in that regiment, who begins a legendary career as officer after saving Commander Wellesley (later Duke of Wellington) from a raid of french scout cavalry in Spain. Since then, I've been dying to paint my own british rifles.
I choosed to paint them with grey breeches, instead of the most common green of regulations, as I feel they look better this way.
The number of models in the box forced me to compromise on my initial plans. I couldn't come up with a full regiment of 4 bases and still have sufficient numbers of skirmishers. Since I believe having skirmishers is more important with this unit, and the fact that a full regiment of 4 bases would mean I'd be fielding the entirety of the King's rifle corps as a single fighting force (not historically accurate), I decided to go with more skirmishers, instead.
The end result is that I have 9 skirmish and 3 regimental bases.
(Sharpe?! Is that you?!)
I'll most likely be fielding this unit with only 2 bases, representing a Small Unit in Black Powder (Stamina 2), which can be reformed into skirmishing order by replacing them for 4 small bases.
Here is the unit in mixed order;
The good number of skirmish bases I have allow me to also field the unit as a small one by using 8 bases aligned together, such as I've show on a earlier post with the british light infantry.
In the future, I may acquire a second box of these fellows and complete the unit with a fourth regimented base, but for now, this will do just fine.
