The Alexandria Rifles.

 In each brigade in Glory Hallelujah, you are allowed one sharpshooter, that is attached to a regiment. Its a nice fun feature to have included. These are my sharpshooters for the Confederates, and are from the Alexandria Rifles. I have exaggerated the green uniform colour , just to pretty them up. I know its more a Hollywood type of uniform, but I do like the effect.
 I have completed a small regiment of rifles to accompany the sharpshooters.I must admit the Perry twins did a fine job of sculpting these miniatures, they were a pleasure to paint.
 Just in case I get an ACW expert comment regarding the rifles, the unit was in Blandford, they were unusual and pretty, and I therefore felt the need to have them, probably not too accurate for the actual war, but they were too good to ignore. Wait until I start the Union regiments, because I hope to paint up some eclectic and unusual regiments.

    1. Colin,
      I was actually fancying the 'Butterflies' a not very good Union cavalry unit.

    1. Stokes,
      Its definitely not my period, and I have broken Peter Young's rule of collecting only one period. But they have been fun to paint.

  4. They look good and that's all that matters!! Plus with that nice bright green uniform you won't forgot that they are on the table top attached to the unit like I have a habit of doing

    1. Brian,
      Its great to hear from you. I try to have two metal and two plastic per base, just to give them some heft. Of course John advised I use all plastic with metal bases, but that would be a real cheat.

    1. Thanks Phil,
      I really need to lift out some renaissance stuff which is crying out to be painted.
