The first base of a Confederate 'firing line' battalion using figures from the original Perry ACW box set - with accessories from the bits box primarily to provide muskets and bayonets. Some of the joints are a bit iffy if you look closely but overall it works I think. Im working on a Union unit at the same time using the marching figures - both will be for sale so pm me if you're interested
And I found the b&w function on the edit package.........

Young FSP has gone off to boarding school so I took the opportunity to remind myself what he had stashed away amongst all the Lego and Airfix. I came across these and thought I'd give one a go, liked it and have decided to build a Battalion for both the Union and the Rebels. The former will be home to all the marching figures while the latter will be a firing line heavy on conversions. These are old models but I prefer the smoother finish to the more angular later ones - like the Zouaves.
