British Regiments of the American Revolution: 23rd Regiment

The 23rd Regiment, the Royal Welch Fusiliers served all through the American Revolution. They were at most engagements save the Quebec 1775-76 campaign and Saratoga 1777.
I choose to paint this regiment as I served along side them in many reenacting events in the 1980s and 1990s. Their main regiment distinctions were first, that as a royal regiment, the facing colour is blue, and the entire regiment, save the Light Infantry company, wore Grenadier bearskins.
I modeled them with Grenadiers from Airfix.
Pictures to follow.
