28mm ACW Aides de Camp

In my last order from Litko, I bought 25 2" by 1" "pill" shaped bases.  I have been reading the new Pickett's Charge rules, which call for several aides de camp per side.  I think this would be a workable way to denote couriers.






Three of the figures are from Sash and Saber, while the bald Union officer removing his cap is from Old Glory.  I hope to put on a Pickett's Charge game this year.

    1. I'm still reading, but the rules seem straightforward enough. I like the friction they have. For the most part, they seem like an update of Guns of Gettysburg.

  6. The base shape will work well to differentiate them from normal officers. Beautiful shading work on these as usual for you. Breathtaking.
