14th Brooklyn, and Forgotten and Glorious Miniatures.

One of the great things about modern wargaming, is the number of people who are prepared to put their money where their mouth is and commission quality wargaming figures and ranges. Minden figures were a good example, and of course the Crann Tara ranges grow anon. So when a new individual commissioned some American Civil figures I had to buy into the project. Forgotten and Glorious Miniatures aren't cheap, they are produced in France and of course the Pound has suffered a bit against the Euro but I like to think you are paying for quality.    
 So I have finished a unit of the 14th Brooklyn who were famous for their French Chasseur uniforms. The actual figures were a pleasure to paint, with good animation, very well sculptured details including the trefoil epaulets, and most importantly great and expressive faces. Given past experiences the unit will probably perform badly on the table, but at least if they run away they will look good as they do so.I cant wait for the release of their Confederates sometime over the next few months. The company produce a Iron Brigade as well, but I already have all the Iron regiments I need, mores the pity. I did however treat myself to their personalities. Absolutely recommended. Further proof that wargaming is enjoying a Golden Age.
