Another quick update today as the march towards Guilford Courthouse (and Breed's Hill) continues. More crown forces join the fray. All 28mm Perry Miniatures.
British artillery. Used a Bavarian cornflower blue (Foundry paints) on the guns here ... a little darker than I wanted, but I'm still happy with it.
I'm still trucking along ... two more British foot units coming up very soon ... along with some British Legion cavalry and Hessian Jagers.

Just a quick post today.
Incremental progress as I switch back-and-forth between AWI and LOTR work. I've made a little more progress on the crown forces for Guilford Courthouse.
First up is the Hessian regiment Von Bose.

Don't recall if I shared this part --- I received my customer markers for the game. I'll be getting some more, but for now they cover Rohan, Gondor, Isengard and Mordor. Each marker is double-sided and tracks from 1-10 and 11-20. These are from the very excellent Historique shop.
I've made good progress on getting my Isengard army onto the bases for Middle Earth Battles. Still lots more to do. Man I hate metal Wargs ... they are the worst (heavy model + 1 paw contacting the base). The combination of super glue and Testors plastic cement continues to be excellent at securing the models to the bases.
His excellency Mr. Dake of the Steve has absolutely blown through painting a bunch of Uruk-hai troops and sent me a "first wave" which I jumped on basing. I have also rebased some of the units I had painted earlier.
I still have many units to do (more warriors, pikes, scouts, siege troops, feral Uruk-hai, etc.). Also, the most excellent Steve Dake is hard at work on the Dunlending units :-)
Managed to stick the fellowship on a base as well ...
Here is some crappy pictures of the growing horde ...
That's it for now - still alternating between LOTR and AWI basing.
