Some more shinies:
|Another treasure chest|
|Engineers and Sedan Chair|
|French Marlburian era troops|
|Marlburian era troops in tricornes|
|Supplies and a tent|
Yes, that is an Arab-style tent. I figures that any pirate captain able to assemble such a large force would want something a bit flamboyant as their command post when on land. However, this one is rather small, so I may need to order the larger one.
As for the Marlburian era troops, I got them to see whether they'd be suitable for inclusion in my pirate army. A few of them are, the rest I can use for colonial troops if I find a suitable set of pirate skirmish rules alongside any pirates that I have left over from doing my FoG:R army.
Korean Cavalry WIP
I've made some good progress on the first batch of cavalry. These will be Kwang Gun or Singi Gun cavalry - probably the latter as that upgrades them from Average to Superior. Having done a bit more research into their armour I found I'd made a boo-boo when I started them a couple of weeks ago. I'd dry-brushed their coats with Oily Steel, however their armour actually consisted of metal or leather plates/scales inside a coat with rivets showing through on the outside.
From what I've been able to gather the guard cavalry would have had red coats, other cavalry blue. I've done the officers with different colours to mark them out.
The horses still need a bit of work - I need to do some as bays, lighten the tails of a couple of the chestnuts and do leg markings.
The riders have a few more steps to do to finish them, but I should be able to complete them tomorrow.
