6mm Confederate Cavalry and Generals

These 60 mounted figures took me a while to finish, but they do look nice once done!

You would think that five Confederate cavalry brigades and four corps commanders would be enough for any battle, but Third Winchester sees seven (!) Confederate cavalry brigades on the field, and Chickamauga requires an army commander and six corps commanders.

The cavalry painted up very nicely.  I had trouble making out some of the details, but as always, I figure if I cannot see it while painting, no one will see it while gaming.  The swallowtail guidons are unusual for Confederate cavalry, and if I were doing these again, I would trim the guidons to make the square.

From left to right you can see my attempts at army / corps command stands featuring Lee, Longstreet, Hood, AP Hill, and Bragg.  When I add the nest two stands, I will make them look like Jackson and Ewell.

With the Confederate artillery, cavalry, and generals finished, I am moving on to the infantry!


  1. Impressive mass effect, wonderful units!

  2. Excellent Confederate cavalry! The mass effect of 6mm is superb and if you can't see to paint it don't worry.

    Cheers, Ross

    1. I'm just having fun painting a new scale. It is definitely different!

    1. I do like the scale, but I think 15mm will always be where my heart is.

  4. The project is coming along nicely. The cavalry looks superb!

  5. Very nicely painted
