American Civil War generals

Just a little paint job while I wait for the mojo to strike/return for the second English Civil War cuirassier regiment (I think probably tomorrow)..  in this case some mounted command figures for the American Civil War project


These were an add on to my last order from Newline - thought it would be nice to have some mounted command to support the foot command figures I currently have ..  not critical but nice to have..


...three figures in the pack so I had to make my mind up who got the extra, but the figures kind of just chose their own sides in the end..


See what I mean? Now if he isn't a Johnny Reb he deserves to be drummed out of West Point.. this guy represents Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson the Confederate commander at Kernstown..


"Halt! No.. go that way!" These two will represent Kimball and Shields, the Union commanders at Kernstown..



Nice..

Three mounted figures, Newline, 20mm, painted May 2020.

  1. More nice figures Steve. I normally pick up some Newline at the Devizes show but it is not on this year. Like you, I love the style of these figures and so much detail appears as they are painted. Stay well. Jim

    1. Jim - love Sean's figures, they're anatomically correct, and super affordable... still in two minds whether to sell the Sudan 15mm project and re-do them with Newline (which sadly came out too late for my project)... well... maybe three minds... :o)) Keep safe..

  2. Definitely Jackson who believed he should raise his arm to make the blood 'balance' in his body! Nicely painted figures.

  3. Grand additions there Steve! It is simply impossible to have too many generals in any collection.
