Here are the last lot of pictures I did of these
First the Union troops. All made as shown at curlers how to. very simple and fast to paint . Once again don't get up close they look awful but give them a nice base, a good flag and some nice looking terrain they will be a pleasure to play with
made in exactly the same way. Mix of colours for variation and distinctive colours to define zouaves etc.
Again the real effect lies in basing standards and terrain.
As mentioned earlier I also wanted to explore the possibilities of European intervention in the ACW so I have duly built a British expeditionary force
currently consisting of 12 regular battalions of infantry, 6 Canadian battalions, a light cavalry brigade, a heavy cavalry brigade and 5 artillery batteries.
Somewhere I have a Russian Crimean army half completed. I may dig it out one day when I can be bothered.
