Goreham's Rangers



By 1761 Goreham's ( or Gorham's) Rangers had adopted a reversible uniform that was a red coat with brown facings and linings. As a result I have painted mine both ways. Painted a few years ago, actually at about the same time as I painted Roger's Rangers! However last week they finally got to have their first battle.




In action for the first time.

Roger's Rangers also in action for the first time.
Figures are from Front Rank.

  1. Superlative work Rog. Now all we need is a set of rules for somewhere in between skirmish level and mid sized actions for FIW

  6. Are it my eyes or something else? They look rather small being 28mm figures. They are excellent painted and also the terrain is great work!

  15. Absolutely lovely looking figures and terrain, though the background foliage is a bit exotic for North America I think!

    WaW gives a good fun old school type game that others say has the flavour of the period.
