The British Are Coming!
I picked up some IMEX Revolutionary War figures a few years ago and there they sat. I bought whatever my fancy was given to. The problem is I had these notions I was going to build giant armies, dioramas. In this case, it was to be Cowpens. After a month, I realized that was never going to happen.
A few weeks ago I was going through my soldiers to get rid of stuff. At that point I decided to paint (approx) one of each pose, get rid of the rest. The result is a small vignette. Free of creating giant battles, I have been on a painting spree. The base (5 1/2" x 12") is not intended as a diorama, but simply a display board with grass.
The stone wall is Tidy Cat kitty litter.
