Helen of Toy Comic Book Soldier Project

Hey Friends
I have had an urge to paint up a diorama of the Helen of Toy, American Revolution set. I am thinking 25/28mm scale but for the life of me, I cannot seem to find any kneeling, firing, regulars. Does anybody have any suggestions?
Thanks
Chris

FOLLOW UP ONE

First off a hearty thank you to Russ from Old Glory 25’s for just up and sending me all the miniatures I needed as well as a single cannon and mounted officer.  This was such an amazing gesture.

I have a lot of his figures in my collections and now I have more.  Thank you Old Glory 🙂

Old Glory 25’s

Well I have the “Mericans” all based and primed white.  I started block painting them in batches.  i am using some new brushes I get from Amazon and of Liquitex Flow Aid.  I have painted maybe three hours and got the primary colors blocked in. 

Now to let them dry overnight.

More Soon

FOLLOW UP TWO

Helen of Toy

OK the “Merricans” are nearly done.  I am attaching a picture of them below. 

I am starting to think about the British side.  As I think I have written they all are wearing a brass miter style hat.  Old Glory sent me enough hat men to do them but at the moment I think that is cheating.  Hmm, I ordered up a 1:72 set of plastic figures from HAT.  They arrived but are just to small.

HAT Hessians

The pondering continues.

By the way please have a look at my AWI skirmish rules “Light Bobs” here  >>>.
