I'm a bit behind at the moment. So, in the absence of anything else, here are some casualty figures from the Perry plastic British infantry box, which come on the command sprue. I've posted about such figures before - see here for Continental casualties and here for highlanders. I put the same effort into these as "live" figures, so I might as well post them on TQ. As I said in one of those earlier posts, I base casualty figures on small rectangular bases, so I can add hats, weapons and a bit of scenic stuff to make the figures more of an event. These figures are painted as being from recent British and Loyalist units that I have been painting; so from left to right: 46th Foot, 44th Foot, New York Volunteers, King's Carolina Rangers. I'm currently finishing off the 46th Foot, so hopefully the full battalion will be up here in a week or so.
It became clear from what I read elsewhere that some people didn't like my post. I can't really help that and, while I love animals and personally would never hurt one intentionally, I don't really have a problem with models of dead animals or even of an episode of human cruelty like this. Wargaming is a hobby that makes entertainment out of extreme violence and I'm afraid that I don't perceive any moral difference between modelling a gallows that shows a dead highwayman or pirate, for example (and there were several such vignettes on the tables at Salute this year), and one that shows a dead animal. But that's just me - I understand others have different views and I respect that. We all have a line that we won't cross in this hobby, and we shouldn't expect everyone else's line to be in the same place as our own. I wasn't much impressed, however, with one suggestion that my post somehow glorifies the lynching of African-Americans - I don't have time for that sort of nonsense, to be honest.
4 figures. Painted January 2016.
