Sash and Saber makes my favorite 28mm Civil War figures, so when Chris Hughes announced that he was sculpting the famous 14th Brooklyn, in their distinctive chasseurs uniform, I knew I had to paint that regiment. The figures definitely fit well with the rest of his line.
Here is the 34 figure regiment.
I went with the marching figures, rather than the skirmishing men, as I prefer my close order units in marching poses.
Flags for this unit, as for all my Civil War units, are from GMB Designs.
The poses are very natural and lifelike, with nice raised detail and good proportions.
If you game the American Civil War in 28mm, you'll need a few packs of these figures. No other manufacturer has figures that portray this famous regiment, and these are beauties.
Love 'em! Very handsome regiment.ReplyDelete
great painting on some cracking looking sculptsReplyDelete
Thanks. These were time consuming, but a lot of fun to paint.ReplyDelete
Not my period and holds little interest for me. however, I can see the fascination when figures look this good. They are superb.ReplyDelete
Very nice indeed.ReplyDelete
Great paintjob, beautiful unit!ReplyDelete
Lovely, lovely work!ReplyDelete
Scott: you are trying to drag me back into the ACW. Stop it and save me from myself! Those figures are gorgeous.ReplyDelete
C'mon, Alte Fritz, you know you want to. All the other gamers are doing it. I'll tell you what: I'll send you some Sash and Saber figures for free so you can see if you like them.ReplyDelete
LOL, you are using the same "crack dealer" business model that I have used with great success at F&D ... The first ones are free and then you get hooked. Ok , I'll take you up on your offerReplyDelete
Yes, that's the model. :-)ReplyDelete
Hey, it worked pretty well for you. How many Fife & Drum figures have I bought now? 300 or so? Plus the Kickstarter pledge?
I couldn't help it. All the cool kids were doing it.
These are just wonderful, Scott. The only downside is that on the tabletop, I've noticed the Rebels like to target them over all others, probably just like in RL.ReplyDelete
Beautiful figures and painting, I have just ordered the same figures for RFF which should be arriving any day now....thanks for the great panting guide.ReplyDelete
Lovely figures! I need to place a S&S order soon!ReplyDelete
Ah, yes. My favorite period and outstanding paintwork as usual.ReplyDelete
Stunning, stunning work.ReplyDelete
Love this unit.
And you are right...Sash and Saber are really great ACW figures. I especially like their action poses.
Very nice paint jobs and great looking gameReplyDelete
Apparently they are not the only figures available that portray this unit:ReplyDelete
