After my last war-game involving the American War of Independence, I decided to paint a unit of American regulars. One good thing about the American Army from this period is the various uniforms. Being from Massachusetts, it seemed only fitting that the first unit would be of a Massachusetts regiment. I chose the 8th Massachusetts. The uniform is a pale blue with red facing. The blue is probably darker than it should be, and with a coat of lacquer it is even darker. However, I will keep it as is for now.
