Wargames Atlantic Riflemen
« on: April 11, 2021, 03:38:21 PM »
Painted these up for a Napoleonic skirmish. You can build up the characters from the Sharpe TV series quite cheaply with this kit, and have some left over. Here is the start of the project. Apart from having to change the rifle on one arm they were an easy build and I think the figures are quite characterful.

They look grand! And they look more like Sharpe, Harper and Tongue than most of the metal figures. I'm not sure if any of the others are supposed to be Harris, Hagman and Perkins though.

I had not really given the others a thought while building them. I must look out old DVDs and see if I can build the others. There are lots of head options and possible arm and weapon combinations. Thanks.

Thanks, yes a friend of mine has taken a couple of sprues for Silver Bayonet Rules. Another use for the figures.

Nice work.
No plan survives first contact with the dice.

They look rather good. 

I wasn't too sure when the set came out, but you've brought out the best in them.
