Captain Weeks looks at the 3 men before him as he runs them through some practice drills. He will do his best to teach these new recruits as much as he can in the next week before they reach camp. He had hoped for better numbers, but now these will have to do.
After Trenton, he was given a couple of weeks leave to head home and to take care of some family affairs. On his return he was to travel through several counties of New Jersey to enlist more recruits. Starting in Egg Harbor he worked his way West towards Philadelphia. Along the way he picked up these three volunteers. Morale was high after Trenton, but people were still more inclined to join the militia than the continental army because discipline was more lax in the state militia units.
4 - 54mm figures from All The Kings Men Toy Soldiers
Why 54mm? Well about 4 years ago a bunch of us saw these figures at a convention and thought "We can do that!" and so we did. It's not really a practical size for just every day gaming, but once or twice a year we throw together what we call the BFG (Big F**king Game) and man is it something to see!
