second volume of "British Grenadier!" scenarios). The classic Howe-era campaign dress of cut-down coats and slouch hats is perfect for these battles. Incidentally, I've never really been sure whether the figure I've used as an officer is supposed to be a sergeant or an officer. Under the 1768 Royal Clothing Warrant, officers were to carry "espontoons" while sergeants carried "halberts". I know there is a technical difference between the two in terms of shape, and I think the figure here is probably carrying a spontoon. If this chap is an officer, then he's removed his right-shoulder epaulette as well as all his lace.
These marching figures are among my favourites in the Perry AWI range. They are straightforward to paint, with good faces (shared with the corresponding Continental infantry packs) and look quite elegant. The 15th brings my tally of British line battalions to 32 (not counting converged battalions of flank companies and Marines). I'll have some further thoughts on British line regiments in a couple of weeks when I post about the first batch of "reinforcements" that I've been painting over the past couple of months.
