Listing Detail Tabs

America was a dangerous place to live in the 18th century, the communities
feeling under real or imagined danger from Indian attack or forays from France
or Spain. The British army in America was tiny, so much of the defence was
traditionally performed by the Militias. These were civilian bodies, locally
manned and headed up by the great and the good, and equipped with state muskets.
Their performance varied greatly, some behaving very well on the field whilst
others deserted or broke and ran when under pressure. What they did do was add
manpower to both armies. Militias fought for the American side, but thousands
also fought as Loyalists for the Crown Forces. Militias rarely carried bayonets
, so felt entitled not to close with regulars.

The figures in this box wear either 18th century civilian clothes or hunting
shirts and trousers. A variety of headgear is included allowing you to also
make models ideal to use as French troops in the French Indian War of
1754-63.

Contains:


30 plastic Colonial Militia figures

2-page background and assembly guide


Models supplied unassembled and unpainted
