The Rangers were raised by Lt. Col. Robert Rogers (of Roger's Rangers during the French & Indian War) who were later commanded by Lt. Col. John Graves Simcoe, who wrote a journal which can be found on Google Books and can be read for free.

The distinctive uniform of the Rangers was also designed to aid the infantry in blending into the surrounding environment. In so many ways they were completely different from the armies of the Crown at the time and so I find hugely inspiring.

This is the first time I have ever done anything in a 'modern' period so very excited.
My Perry minis arrived today and I have enough models to build the following list...
11 Light Infantry
This should roughly build a 200 point War Party. With room to expand into a larger force with the inclusion of more Rangers and Hussars.

So stay tuned all!
