I have been working on a War of 1812 project centered on the Niagara campaign of 1814. This has always been a fascination of mine since I first visited the battlefields of Chippewa and Lundy's Lane and Fort George back in 1985. The new professionalism of the American Army stands in sharp contrast to the slap dashed half hearted efforts up to then. In addition I just really like the look of this period!
The figures are from the outstanding Knuckleduster miniatures war of 1812 line. The figures are great, customer service is excellent. Presently I have started painting figures for Brown's American Army. This will include Scotts brigade (9th, 11th, 22nd and 25th US infantry regiment), Ripleys brigade (1st, 21st and 23rd US Infantry regiments) and Porters brigade (Pennsylvania and New York Volunteers) with attached artillery and cavalry.
Not sure at this time on how I will base the figures. I used thick bases for my other two projects. But I kinda like the look of the thin ones. Rules might be a version of Charge of the Light Brigade. Will see how that works out after a couple play tests.
Here are few pictures of the start of my collection.
