A Quick Picture

I have been working on a large lot of Eureka WFR Austrians, and they are taking a while.  In lieu of new content, I present for your enjoyment a brigade of Confederate infantry, moving to the sound of the guns.

18mm Blue Moon Napoleonic French Elite Companies

Here are the last set of figures for my Blue Moon French infantry.  These are all from pack 125NFT-210 "Flank Company Campaign Dress March Attack."

I painted twelve stands as grenadiers and twelve as voltiguers.

Once Old Glory releases the voltiguers skirmishing, I'll paint up a pack or two to add to these six battalions.  I'm also looking forward to Blue Moon's casualties.

15mm Union Cavalry

Here are the latest finished figures.  These are 15mm Union cavalry from Old Glory, 18 of them in total.

The flag is a paper flag from

I liked these figures better than I remembered, and I have another 200 or so in the lead pile.

Now I am working on some Blue Moon French elite companies to finish up my Napoleonic French line battalions.

Blue Moon 18mm Napoleonic French Infantry Command

These are the command stands for those 30 stands of French infantry I finished last month.  All figures are from Blue Moon 15NFT-100 "Line Command Full Dress" except for the figure waving a shako on his bayonet, who is from AB.  I wanted to show that gamers can easily mix the two lines within units.

The flags are all GMB, three battalions each from the 21st and 12th Line.  I removed the oversized flag staffs from the figures, drilled out hands with a pin vise, and used piano wire.  I kept three eagles, but since each regiment was only supposed to have one eagle, I probably should only have kept two.

The figures pained up very well, and they should look great on the table.

Blue Moon 18mm ACW Union Infantry

It has been a long time since I painted any 15mm Civil War troops.  These are all Union infantry, shoulder arms, in light kit from Blue Moon's excellent line.

I went for two tones on most of the colors.  This was a fun little project, and it was nice to bang out this many troops in just a week.
