Thanks for comments dourpurritan and Glenn.
The 5mm Dice box is ok for gaming but not the best if you have big fingers like me ;-)
I tried 7mm but it does not look good if the dice is bigger than the figure.......for me .
I know your problem with the large vegetation clumps .... flowers hight like a man !? ......but you have to look at the whole picture.......and from the gaming distance it looks quite well.
Re BerdanĀ“s ...you have a good eye ;-) It makes me happy when people notice the small details.
@ Glenn ....dark blue , blue , light blue , light light blue ......grey , dark , light ,..........15 different blues and grays ....its hard i know ..... if you will spend more hours in painting green .....5th Georgia Infantry Regiment , Alexandria Rifles 6th Battalion Virginia Volunteers or Woodis Rifles 6th Virginia Regiment ;-)
There's also the early uniform of the South Carolina Rifles (Orr's), which, although grey, had plenty of green facings. This lasted until after the Seven Days. Similarly the Texas Lancers sported green facings. Now there's a unit I've never seen modelled.

Hello Andreas and dourpuritan!
I was inspired by a short documentary the night before on Gettysburg. In that their uniforms were all green. I did know that during the war their uniform became more standard issue due to supply. I even had one guy in a round hat. It seems my creative side got surpressed as I changed him out for a cap. I stayed the course and made them all look like their original uniform all green.
After painting Napoleonics for 40 years I was anxious to paint simple generic ACW uniforms. However, at some point in time I will add in some specific units, so many thanks for mentioning those units who were different.

Baccus should use your photos for their catalogue. These painted examples are amazing.
Hello and thanks 6mmwargaming . If Peter wants he can use my photos or my painting talent ;-)
Will Peter be waking up to find a horse's head in the bed if he refuses this offer? Seriously though, this is amongst the best 6mm painting I've seen.
