British Regiments of the American Revolution: The 49th

Now why did I choose to start with this Regiment? Not sure, maybe because it was one of the first ones I finished painting.
The 49th Regiment of Foot was raised in 1744 in Jamaica from eight independent companies.
Their main participation in the American Revolution was in the Philadelphia campaign of 1778.
The facing colour was green.
In the French Revolutionary Wars, the regiment was used as Marines in the Royal Navy. During the War of 1812, the Regiment served in Upper Canada as one of the British regular regiments.
Pictures to follow. The figures are modeled with Accurate/Revell minatures.
