AWI British Infantry - Rebasing

Having earlier rebased some of my AWI collection, I decided on a quick rebase of a few more, as a number of figures were falling off their bases. Easier said than done! The culprits were based with a coarse sawdust that was difficult to remove, and I found quite a most needed touched up, and a few repairs were needed as well.

The original units were split by pose, but since I had started the work I decided to split the kneeling/firing poses between the 10th and 14th Foot by changing the yellow/white facings on the appropriate figures.

Overall they were not in bad condition from thirty years service and they are now ready to see a lot more service.

Over the next few days I'll try and post the individual units over on my AWI blog

Four base regiments - your rules say two!? :o)

Yes, but these were painted before the rules were created, and in the rules they operate as two separate wings each of two bases.

They look good though - and I quite like the look of my four base battalions I use for the Marlborough project (which were based on your 7YW rules)... may be it's a change for the future... :o)
