Carl is having me paint a small Wurttemberg force for him in 15mm. Here we have a regiment of Jager, 2 line infantry regiments, and one light infantry regiment.

While finishing the infantry, I tackled a battery of horse artillery and some generals.

Two regiments of cavalry are up next!

Finishing the Basing

The basing is almost finished. I just had the figures glued down on Thursday, but now the bases are flocked and looking good!

2nd Maryland




I had ONE base warp during the process. Carl like small magnets in his bases for storage, and they can leave little crevices in the wood. When I apply my glue wash, it can cause the wood to warp.

I am open to suggestions. I already tried soaking the base in water for a few seconds and clamping it to a flush surface. If anything, that made the warp worse. Should I just start from scratch on this one base?

More Rebs!

After a hiccup with the Union zouaves (broken castings), these figures will put a cap on Carl's ACW collection for now.

2nd Maryland, CSA

Two batteries with six horse limbers

Once the flocking is done, these figures will be on their way to Carl!

Rebel Reinforcements

I misunderstood my instructions a bit, so I dipped into my spares box for these 24 marching Confederates. I had thought that I needed more butternut in the mix, so I painted these all in four different butternut shades.

Carl will have a 15 man regiment of Confederate sharpshooters. With their long brass scopes, these fellows look the part!

The ten generals in the Personalities pack are, L-R, front to back:

James Longstreet, Joseph E. Johnston, Stonewall Jackson, Nathan Bedford Forrest
Braxton Bragg, Robert E. Lee, J.E.B. Stuart
Richard Ewell, George Pickett, John Bell Hood

 I never quite understand why manufacturers include Pickett, of all people. He is the sole division commander in this array, while army and corps commanders like Jubal Early, John B. Gordon, A.P. Hill, James K. Polk, John C. Breckinridge, Richard Taylor, Patrick Cleburne, John C. Pemberton, William Hardee, Joseph Wheeler, Kirby Smith, and Albert Sidney Johnston are all absent.

Confederate Infantry Casualties and Generals

Carl's 10 Confederate regiments will have 27 casualties scattered amongst the stands. These figures were a lot of fun to paint!

He will also have ten Confederate generals to command his troops. 

Tomorrow I will start basing up all the line infantry regiments!
