Navy Marines

These rather excellent British Navy Marines are from yet another pile of models that have been wanting some paint for ages. Once I actually got started, it did not take long to paint five.
These models are all from Black Scorpion and will ultimately crew my Man O’War.
I did some research online looking at 18th century uniforms but was really after a uniform that did not include white trousers, why would any soldiers wear too much white?

I did find a few examples of uniforms that fitted my criteria. I also wanted to go for blue trousers so they would have some synergy with my Meridian steampunk infantry.
