Blue Moon 18mm ACW Rebel Cavalry

I painted all 108 Confederate cavalry figures in one large batch, finishing in early August.  

I bought two packs each of cavalry with sabers, pistols, and carbines, and I bought one pack of command.

The flags are GMB.  I used the same sheet for mounted and dismounted command.

I tried for a mix of greys, butternuts, and browns.  The horses are in six different colors with variety added through socks, fetlocks, blazes, and mane and tail colors.

This drawer holds a 1' square linoleum tile with a magnetic sheet attached.  The metal bases keep the cavalry from slipping during transit.  I can even hold this tile upside down without the bases falling off!
