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, warof1812wargaming.blogspot.com . 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.
