British Dragrope Men

These Perry British dragrope men were great fun to paint; I decided that I would paint a few of them as the New Jersey Battalion which hauled the guns at Brandywine Creek as part of Knyphausen’s Division. The poses are incredibly lifelike, I was very tempted to give them a gritty worn out look which would have suited them better I think, but I couldn’t resist leaving them with bright white overalls instead. Also with the dragrope men is an old ammunitions cart, I had found this hidden in my bits box half painted with a wheel snapped off. I stripped the paint, fixed the wheel and painted it.
