I like how the Reb's butternut colours camouflage them in the mud of the battlefield.

Nice looking figures. If I were to offer a suggestion it would be in the basing. At this size you want your colors to be lighter. I'd give them a good dusty dry brush. I'd also switch to smaller scatter - use some fine grained sand. The ballast you have there looks like really big rocks to my eye.

Naturally, YMMV!

Keep it up though!

Cheers Mark, Base scatter is a little on the rockyside will try some finer ballast on my next bases, will be in contact re rules.

The recruiting offices from Richmond and Tallahassee have been busy and my next 7 bases are done;

and a couple of shots of all 11 batallions to date....

Artillary, Generals and Cavalry to follow

Looking good!

I'm hoping to get into 6mm ACW soon myself and stuff like this is really inspiring. Which rules will you be using for these lads?

Very nice! I dont know why but the ragged rebs look a lot more appealing than the neat Union to me!
