A Compendium of Rebels.

 Over Christmas I was given four unusual figures by Colin of Carry on up the Dale blog fame. The figures were unusual as they were ACW figures with some metal fencing included. Anyway I decided to paint up a random unit of rebels using these four figures as the core of the regiment this last week.
 I had various spare ACW figures and cobbled together this unit.The other figures are Redoubt, Perry, Foundry and a couple of Steve Barber figures. So quite a cross section of manufacturers. Unfortunately there was no details regarding the odd four, just that they were engaged in climbing over the fence provided.
 Anyway I knocked this odd unit off , in between paining up Bronzino's Guns. I also used larger bases to make a sort of diorama effect for the unit.I didnt want to chop the metal fencing around too much, they were already quite vulnerable to bending etc.
                      So there you have it. A proverbial Foreign Legion of ACW figures.

  1. They look great Robbie. I can't remember where I got them, other than it was 2016 and that they were off a German manufacturer who wasn't attending last year (2017) and tested my schoolboy German to the limit and beyond.

  4. Hello Robbie they look great but you can’t be claiming a cover save with the fence mind 😉

  5. Could've been made for you with the extra fencing eking out fewer figures! Nice mix of manufactures, you must almost be done on this project by now?

    1. I blame Barry Hilton for skimping on figures. And yes I am about finished painting ACW. I have started some new figures from other periods.
