The published "British Grenadier!" scenarios only feature Pulaski's Legion once - 10 figures at Savannah. I painted Pulaski himself back in 2011, using a Eureka Miniatures "Baron Munchausen" figure. For his Legion I've used the Eureka "ragged Continental" cavalry figures, wearing brass helmets. I painted all the figures and horses last year, having picked up some reinforcements from Eureka at Salute 2016. However, for whatever reason the figures came with the wrong helmets. I knew that Eureka would have replaced them without any fuss, but I failed to let Eureka know and then eventually this year's Salute was just around the corner. I'd been mulling over what figures to use for Loyalist South Carolina cavalry, so I thought I'd just order some more figures and re-order the correct helmets. So I spent last week painted all the helmets and finishing off the basing, even though the figures themselves were painted almost a year ago!
'' Resolved. That Count Pulaski retain his rank of
brigadier in the army ot the United States, and that
he raise and have the command of an independent
corps to consist of sixty-eight horse, and two hundred
foot, the horse to be armed with lances, and the foot
equipped in the manner of light infantry; the corps
to be raised in such way and composed of such men
as General Washington shall think expedient and
Pulaski seems to have recruited more men than Congress ordered, as the muster rolls of August 1778 refer to "three companies of horse, armed with lances, and three companies of infantry, a total of three hundred and thirty." So how many troopers were actually armed with lances and for how long? Who knows - but the justification for having lancers is there in the archives. So I decided to give lances to 4 of the rank-and-file figures (which of course meant using the same standard bearer figure 5 times). The pennants are from Adolfo Ramos - I don't know how authentic they are, but the lances would look a bit bare without them. My first choice was white over red, but I realised I'd used most of them up on my BAL dragoons, so had to use black over red instead (the only other option was yellow over light blue!). I think they look ok.
10 figures. Painted March-May 2016.
