Hi all,

Haven't posted anything in a while, so here goes.....

7th and 50th Illinois, 4th & 7th Michigan.




19th, 20th Massachusetts, 51st New York & 63rd Pennsylvania



146th New York (Garrard’s Tigers).  Lots of head swaps.



Union Brigadiers.  Again lots of head swaps.

Finally, a few Rebel reinforcements.



Hope you like them.

Really good.
Whats the significance of the coloured edges to the cavalry, but not on the infantry.

Cheers chaps.

These are Brigadier Generals for use with Pickett's Charge rules.  They're to make the bases stand out more.  I tend to use all sorts of aesthetic vignettes (aka 'fluff') on the table to make it more interesting and fun.  The downside is that other people tend to find it difficult to actually identify where the commanders are.

These are excellent. Quick question: are the bases 25mm square?

Just finished a new brigade of Rebs, using some of the new CSA General character packs as Mtd Colonels and some as Brigadiers.
