Forbodian Militia Regiment

The Militia Regiment deployed for action.
This regiment pretty well completes the Forbodian Army - a further post will include a full army list. (Defence Ministry permitting). 
The 20-figure Militia Regiment has been populated largely from an old box of Timpo ACW infantry I picked up cheaply on a certain interwebnet auction site.  Two were converted to make the bugler and standard bearer and the numbers were made up by four figures from an Italeri set.  The fairly simple paint scheme utilised the 'traditional' Forbodian colours of green and purple with shiny black boots and tan webbing.  The 'new' colour in the mix give these chaps the nickname by which they are known by other Forbodian units - 'The Brown Trousers'.  Well they are reservists...
The command group - bugler (badly converted), officer (his private income clearly allows more flamboyant nether garments), NCO and standard bearer. 
March column.  The four Italeri figures form the third rank.
