With these 28 jolly chaps 94% (47 figures) of the Italeri AWI infantry box is completed. The remaining three are natives in long coats. I have a complete set of FIW Indians unpainted so they will be joining them on top of the Heap.
What I've said previously about the figures still stands: they're rather ugly and have a bunch of useless poses, but are easy to paint. To further simplify things, I used white on the cuffs and facings, the same color as their legwear.
Actually, even with the Napoleonic diversion, the tricorne part of the infamous Heap is reducing quickly. I'm going to finish the most recently bought Zvezda hussars first, and then the infantry figures from the GNW Russian dragoons set. These figures have small cuffs and turnbacks so they're going to be dismounted Swedish dragoons - there are ways to avoid the complete lack of Swedish infantry on the market. OK, I even considered buying the box that is on ebay for 40 Euros.
