Ironsides

Cavalry seem to take forever but I've finally managed to assemble 4 troops of Parliamentary horse. Photos are a little blurry and flashy but you get the idea

Skirmishers

From the latest Perry boxset come 8 plastic Union skirmishers. Nice figures that give a lot of options but sometimes I just wish for a figure that requires no glue to stick it together.

Endurance

Bouncing from one civil war to another at the moment. The Orange Auxiliaries are finally finished albeit with slightly worn colours at the moment. It has only taken the best part of 2 years. A cavalry unit next I think.

Confederate

I quite enjoy doing these. There are 7 core figures in the unit - all from the original Perry ACW set. The challenge is to make a unit that looks very different. The bits box provided arms, weapons and heads where required. The original figures are not terribly dynamic but I hope its a reasonable take on a Confederate firing line. My own favourite is the man waving his hat, a thing that seems to occur in every Troiani print. Most figures have grey coats and blue trousers but a few mixed up browns and coloured blanket rolls create a non uniform appearence.

They are for sale at a sensible price if you are interested. PM me at foresightpaint@gmail.com for info or if you want other figures painting. In the meantime here are the photos:

Virginia

Or 'Virginyah' as they keep saying in the Gettysburg film. Anyway, whatever they are called, here are the first 3 stands of a generic Confederate firing line. All are from the original Perry ACW set with support provided by the bits box. The anonymous Federal marching enemy are not far behind
