A Few More Rebels.

 Well my dabbling in the American Civil War continues with the completion of a second regiment, and two additional regiments partly completed. I have found because the period is something that I have never really been interested in I have thoroughly enjoyed the painting experience. The next two regiments are Louisiana Zouves, that have been interesting to paint.
 I cant actually decide if I should progress the project into a major one simply because Colin already has large armies. However I am keen to paint up some rebel cavalry and the odd artillery battery. I suppose the best thing to do is just see where the project takes me. Still a nice way to spend the odd painting period.The figures are a mix of Perry and Foundry, both are fine ranges.

  3. Great looking figures, nice unit, of course you could get the Perry game in a box, very good value and you like putting together Perry plastics?

    1. Yes and no Iain, I seem to get a lot of glue on my fingers, and the heads always look a bit odd.

    1. Neil,
      Just for your information, the unpainted movement trays are only a temporary thing. They are actually for my Renaissance cavalry.

    2. I will ask John (when he gets back from holiday) if we can have a big ACW game. I will get the collection out the loft. You could always join us and get your troops on the table Robbie.
