August Painting

Both of the units featured in this post were purchased already painted.  All I did was to touch up the paint jobs, especially with the Confederate unit, which included repainting some of the pants and the blanket rolls.

The first unit is actually a "future" reinforcement for my Cleburne's Corps of the Army of Tennessee.  Using already painted 15mm figures I created the brigade commanded by Brigadier General Stephen D. Lee, which was actually assigned to Stevenson's Division in Pemberton's Army of Mississippi and was part of the garrison of Vicksburg, surrendering there on July 4, 1863.  But in my "imagination" campaign in 1863 in central Tennessee, it is made available to Bragg's army.

S. D. Lee's Brigade, Army of Tennessee, composed of 20th, 23rd, 30th, 31st, and 46th Alabama Regiments
I have been informed that the infantry figures are probably Battle Honors, but I do not know for sure.  The mounted officer is definitely a Battle Honors figure.  Here Lee's Brigade is composed of about 1200 men, depicted as four stands for the "On to Richmond" rules that I use.

The "On to Richmond" rules has two ways of depicting casualties to a unit, one is actually removing stands while the other is an accumulation of "disruption" markers, up to 3.  For my markers, I'll be using a casualty figure on a hexagonal base.  Three of the sides will be marked with dots to designate 1, 2, or 3 accumulated disruptions.

Example of a marker showing 2 disruptions on S. D. Lee's Brigade.  The side showing a single disruption is just visible on the right side of the marker.
And finally here are six 25mm vintage Ral Partha mounted sergeants that I purchased some time ago at a convention.  All I did was mount them on 40mm x 20mm steel bases, touched up the horses and figures, and repainted the red and blue colors on the unit banner.

This unit can be used in three different medieval rule sets that we favor here in Jackson - the venerable "Rules by Ral," the skirmish level "Lion Rampant" which is a highly modified derivative of "Rules by Ral," and the recently released "To the Strongest!" rules which are geared more for large scale battles.  This unit of veteran mounted sergeants should see plenty of action.

That's all for now until I get some more 15mm ACW units painted.

Looking for a Few Good Men

This Bazaar post is a little different.  I am looking to purchase just a few Falcon Miniatures figures to fill out a Boxer Rebellion US Marine unit.  I'm looking from 3 to 6 of the US Marine advancing figure, as depicted below:




If you have any of these figures with which you can part, please contact me at jmcp 1650 at comcast dot net (remove spaces and substitute words for the at symbol and the dot).

Many thanks,

Jim
