Bunker Hill Militia Regiment #1

     I finished up the first 16 figure unit (along with some more figures towards the next). As built, the unit is a suitable representation of Prescott's Regiment as listed in the British Grenadier rulebook supplied scenario. The regiment carries a flag design that was immortalized by artist Jonathan Trumbull who bore witness to the battle himself.

     While it is debatable if there were actually any flags carried by the Patriot Militias at the battle [multiple eyewitness accounts expressly describe this being the case], what self-respecting wargamer would dare field such a naked army? Not this one! :-) The flag started life as a paper one, but I opted to use it as a guide to paint one instead.
