Peter Laing War of 1812 Militia

      As mentioned earlier, I have been toying with an 1812 wargame  using Peter Laing figures. I also came across a good blog on War of 1812 wargaming, named, not surprisingly, . On this site there are very good illustrations of uniforms from the period.  Among the uniforms are militia units with top hats and hunting frocks. I made a mold of the Peter Laing figure of a frontiersman marching, which is a good figure for these militiamen. Today I painted up some to represent a couple of militia units.

These figures are quite rough. If this project continues this figure might need a better mold.


  1. Luckily the photos are blurry! Not one of my best molds, but I think I will try this figure again.
