The 28th of Foot and the big bangers
The 28th was raised for the first time 1694, arrived too late for Blenheim, in the Seven Years War it fought at Louisburg and Quebec were Mr. Wolfe choose to place himself next to this very regiment – hmm, but to be fair their fame was still far ahead to come, especially in the Napoleonic Wars at the Battle of Alexandria. In the AWI it would see the first New York campaign including White Plains.
I painted the Command for the 28th and some big guns (you always need some, in case a siege comes along, they can be handy). The other troopers are one of my oldest tin mans from the 15th (no specific rationale behind it other than yellow).
The Flags again are from Flags of War the miniatures are from Foundry (Perry, I assume) and the bases from Warbases.
