American War of Independence - Will McNally's rules - One secret unveiled and another to come, Brandywine 1777
And here they are. After filling the comment box with hundreds of messages, which I could not read all, none of you was right.
The many thousands who didn't have the courage for expressing themselves (for fear of being mistaken, l'm sure) might be right, but no one will ever know.
The Queen's Rangers (this was the right answer...) were a loyalist unit who became famous in many actions of the AWI, including Brandywine were they suffered heavy casualties on the Chad's ford sector.
They are converted grenadier figures from the Revell Austrian infantry.
Only the coat tails were erased with a X-Acto so they can sport the short coat that made them famous and also the cloth bag hanging from the helmet was also taken out.
And now a new challenge: can any one guess what is coming?
Please don't answer all at the same time, keep calm and everybody will have his chance.
The usual fantastic prizes are available!
