British Infantry on Campaign

5th Regiment (Northumberland) - click pix to enlarge.

A side view of the 5th. Note the difference in the original red coat compared to the faded rose colored coat.


  1. Jim, these are absolutely gorgeous. Well done!

    Best Regards,


  2. The faded coat idea gives a great look to that unit. A very nice paint effect.
