Units - 24th Foot 1745
These are the only figures I have from the Jacobite range, I think swapped with Harry for some S Range Ancients. A recent burst of painting activity saw me complete them, as something a bit different. I used the picture from the Blandford on British Infantry Uniforms as a guide. It looks very likely this was also used as the reference for the original figure.
They are of the chubbier S Range build, such as the Crimeans and Franco Prussian range also have - it seems to be a sort of transition towards the current generation Minifigs. (The Napoleonic Range seemed to have an intermediate stage, where the figures were redone with this build, not the full fledged chubby gnome look, and had the figure serial numbers embossed on the top of the base. At some pont, when I have much more time than I have anything important to do, I may go through old Wargamer's Newsletters for the S Range ads to build a timeline of roughly what parts of the S Range came out when.
