This is my entry for Bonus Round #4 for the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge. The theme is "West".
Captain Weeks looks at the 3 men before him as he runs them through some practice drills. He will do his best to teach these new recruits as much as he can in the next week before they reach camp. He had hoped for better numbers, but now these will have to do.
After Trenton, he was given a couple of weeks leave to head home and to take care of some family affairs. On his return he was to travel through several counties of New Jersey to enlist more recruits. Starting in Egg Harbor he worked his way West towards Philadelphia. Along the way he picked up these three volunteers. Morale was high after Trenton, but people were still more inclined to join the militia than the continental army because discipline was more lax in the state militia units.
4 - 54mm figures from All The Kings Men Toy Soldiers
This is one of those projects I have been meaning to pick back up for some time now. 54mm sadly requires a lot of table space, but now that I've recently picked up Sharp Practice 2 I have this urge to try to play it with my 54mm AWI guys. So you may see more of this soon. :)
Unfortunately for these recruits they never found Washington's army because a strange rift opened up in their path and a giant cat named Freya stepped through and devoured them. But that's an alternate history...
