Call in the Cavalry

Here's a quick update with some more Bolt Action miniatures for a Very British Civil War. I build a quick telephone cell, because how else to call in the reinforcements?
Also finished some more riflemen and the first of the Grenadiers.

And now for something completely different.

A Very British Civil War.

It's been a while, and I've been mostly painting napoleonics and war of the roses. Yesterday though I stumbled across the decent chaps of a 'Very British Civil War'. The setting and pictures of a lot of fine painted units sparked my interest, so I rolled out the Bolt Action rules and a box of plastic British infantry from Warlord to see what I could come up with. For the moment I'm aiming at a generic British army list consisting of a command, 2 veteran 5 men squads, and 1 large 10 men squad. Expanding on this I'd probably add a motorcycle combination and a Rolls Royce armoured car. I'm basing my list on the Yorkist Front, but I haven't been able to read into it much yet.
Anyway, here are the first two units, for from finished, but it's a start.

Brengunner of the 59th rifles

Grenadier Guard, not much fluff yet, but I think they'll be painted up in a combination of red and white, being the colors of the flag of the city of York.
